than just praying against bitterness.
Because bitterness is always there. Welling up inside my heart. My wicked, ugly heart. I have got to fight every day against this bitterness and it is hard. It is so hard. Because as many as are for me seem to be against me and it’s a struggle that I would much rather just give up on.
But let’s be real. That is so not an option.
So it’s more than just praying against bitterness. Because like Banner it’s just always inside me and when pushed to the limit something is going to overflow and as much as I’d love to say it’s joy, bitterness is never far away. So praying is only step one.
Before the bitterness. After the bitterness. In the midst of the bitterness. And when there is not even any reason or any thing or any one to be bitter with. It’s a quiet moment. It’s a day alone. It’s a perspective adjustment. And it’s not just praying against the bitterness.
