None of us are immune to feeling angry, resentful, and deeply bitter!
When something unbearable, deeply unkind, completely false, and manipulative happen to us, it is in our sinful nature to become extremely angry.
These feelings have a way of stealing our joy, hurting YOU more than it does anyone else.
But what happens when you find yourself falling into the pit of despair?!
“This isn’t fair! I don’t deserve this treatment!”
“How could they hurt me like this? I am starting to feel deep hatred towards them!”
“How can I forgive them and move on when they aren’t sorry! I feel so bitter towards them.”
The Bible is a great source of knowledge when it comes to all issues to do with anger and resentment.
Christ experienced all these emotions when he was rejected by the people he came to save and killed by them! He knows what you’re feeling. Talk to Him!
