Bitter or Blessed?
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
Psalm 32:1, nkjv
Your heavenly Father has been waiting for you to come home to Him, waiting for you to confess your sin of resentment and rebellion, waiting to celebrate the joy and love and pleasure He wants you to have in relationship with Him. Don’t make excuses; don’t rationalize your bitterness. Go to God; ask Him to cleanse you of your sin. Ask Him to uproot your bitterness. Invite Him into your life to take control of everything, including past memories of abandonment or abuse or adultery, present circumstances of injury or injustice, and future dreams and disappointments.
Follow the example of the psalmist, who wrote, “I will confess my transgression to the Lord” (Ps. 32:5, niv).
“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”
Wouldn’t you rather be blessed than bitter?
