Bitterness for joy image

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Ephesians 4:31

We sometimes find ourselves in a place where we hold on to something that really needs let go. It may be a situation or activity that drains you of joy and life. It may be that there are others who bring you down and rob you of your hope and dreams. Maybe you are holding onto pain from a past hurt.

But, things like bitterness, wrath, anger, and slander do not share the light. They actually hold you and often those effective into dark places. It’s hard to believe that we are often the reason we remain stuck and hurt.

It breaks my heart to see others trapped in these places when it’s absolutely possible to break through to the light once again. No matter how difficult things are or how badly you have been wronged there is a way past and through it all.

God can help, wants to help, and will help, always!

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 ESV

Today’s message is near to my heart. I see how destructive these negative thoughts and actions can be on people and I have such a commitment to do whatever I can to help them lean into the Trinity for help. I love speaking truth and light into these situations…ridding us of these negative thoughts and encouraging us to ‘let them go’ and to ‘let God’s light in’.

Call on the Lord in prayer for a renewed mind and heart. Pray for God’s strength to turn away from these bad/hurtful thoughts that truly just bring more destruction, fear, and wrath into your life. Speak out loud to any of these thoughts, actually shifting them to a claim.

“I am a child of God.”
“Who is above everything!”
“He is in me and where He is – no bad will be.”
“I rebuke the dark and lean into the light.”

This is where you WILL find those negative thoughts and pain replaced with peace, joy, healing, restoration and so much sweet power.
