On the Alter Of

And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]Ephesians 4:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unfortunately, one of my bad dispositions is letting go of a grudge. Being more mature I have learned to place it at the feet of Jesus. He heals the wound and avenges the wrong doer.

Many times however, it is played out in my head where they are shamed while yours truly look like the hero. This childish fantasy is surely played out in all of our heads. Rather than dwell on the wound others have inflicted from personal experience, it is better to listen to old hymns that praise Jehovah. This fills the heart with joy rather than anger and bitterness.

Now of course the wound may need to be healed by going to righteous Christian councilors to help deal with the lingering pain.

Those that nurture the grudge are cultivating weeds of hate and anger which suffocate the beautiful plants of love and joy. They become mean, bitter angry old men and women in their later years.

Of course this devastating disease cause great harm to both the mental and physical body.

It also affects the relationship with Christ. Because He is love and there is hate and anger in the heart the two are not comparable.

I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: PleaseYAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal the cuts both superficial and the gougingly deep ones that have been inflicted upon me.

Please empower me to concentrate on all Your loving attributes instead of foolishly wasting my time rerunning the event over in my head where I glorify myself while shaming the offender. That is such a wast of time and is very childish.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am an unpaid live in care giver for my aged mother. As well I regularly do volunteer work with a local church group helping working poor establish themselves independently. . I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
