It's a daily choice.
A choice to focus on how God set you free from the bondage of bitterness, instead of what people chose to say.
Words are more powerful than most people know, thankfully God is all powerful and can heal the pain caused by hurtful words.
You get to chose what you say, yes, but you also get to chose how you react.
My choice? To rest in God and trust His plan in my life. That may not be what my flesh wants to do, but the flesh is not to be trusted. God is.
Thank you God, for being my guide. My light in the darkness. My prayer is that in my life, you radiate through.
