New Mercies each day....
Anger was at the center of some of my relationships. I spewed angry words at those I felt hurt by, never letting a chance to cut pass by.
Sad but true. I guess the thing I didn't realize was the anger permeated more than I wanted.
I had tried to isolate it. One day my husband asked me, what are you so angry about?
I could go into great detail and try to justify my anger, but what I really want to share with you is how I came to recognize it and let God work on me in these areas.
Everything in my life had gotten root bound by bitterness that kept me from having peace and joy, I needed a new start and that meant forgiving the unforgivable even when it had not been asked for, (just like Jesus does).......
It was a job. Something that has to be done with a fresh try and fresh mercy everyday, speaking words of forgiveness out loud and to myself. After some time, I noticed a more lightheartedness and peace. God said.....
Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
fail of the grace of God, wow, forgive me Lord and help me be gracious and be more like you.....
I love you Jesus
