Life in this fallen world is full of injustices. A marriage you’d , leaving you in financial ruin. A child you’d invested your life into for years could make choices thathought would last forever could end in divorce. A business you’d worked hard to build could failt grieve you deeply. An accident or serious illness can hit you, even when you’ve been living a healthy lifestyle. Responding to life’s injustices with bitterness will only poison your soul. But when you choose to let go of bitterness and trust God to help you move on, the world’s major religions say that God can miraculously heal you, no matter what you’ve suffered.
When you choose not to be bitter, your life can miraculously get better. Here’s how you can go from bitter to better:
•Be honest with yourself and God. Freely express your thoughts and feelings about the loss you’ve suffered. God genuinely cares, and won’t be offended by any negative thoughts or feelings with which you’re struggling.
•Confess your bitterness to God. God loves you deeply and unconditionally, and that he alone has the wisdom necessary to guide you successfully into the future. So decide to trust him, no matter what your current circumstances.
•Don’t try to change the past. Accept the reality that the past is gone and cannot be changed. However, commit to making choices in the present that will shape a better future for you.
•Forgive others who have hurt you. Ask God to bring to mind the names and faces of the people you need to forgive — past or present. Surrender any plans to take revenge. Instead of using your energy to nurse resentment, use it to think of creative solutions to the problem and ways to improve your relationship with the people who hurt you. Choose to forgive them, with God’s help.
•Forgive yourself for mistakes you’ve made. If the person you need to forgive is yourself, ask God to give you a vision of how He sees you, and embrace His love.
•Surround yourself with supportive, spiritually mature friends. Don’t be afraid to ask for help for specific things you need, such as listening, help with tasks you don’t have energy to complete, advice, prayers, and accountability.
