Holding grudges.... the easiest thing to do in life. It is so easy to not speak to the person that has wronged you. It is so easy to frown at your ex best friend. It is so easy to devour the reputation of your coworker. It is so easy to put those down who put you down. Why? Because you seek revenge; you seek justice for their actions. But vengeance is not yours. God has the last say so and he has been more than merciful with us. We have said some ugly things and we have did our wrong. It is always easier to see others' faults greater than our own. It is not that we have to pray for the downfall of others but pray that God has mercy as he does with us. Once again it may be really easy and greatly convenient to hold grudges and be spiteful but all it does is make you bitter. The more you participate in ugly acts towards others the uglier you become on the inside. The anger, bitterness, resentfulness, and all of the feelings that may have accrued from disappointments, hurt, rejection, loneliness, and fear. It tears you down the longer you hold on. So what they lied on you? So what they stopped being your friend? So what they stabbed you in the back? So what they left you? Them doing what they did pushed you to be where you are. They helped to propel you into your future. They served their purpose. Now it is time for you to serve yours. Focus on what you have to do in life. Worry about you and let God take care of the rest. Your purpose is too great to worry about what other people have going on. As I always say I don't have time to waste time. Don't waste time on seeing what they said about you, entertaining the gossip, or stalking people around the city. Live your life. Put God as the head and you follow his lead. Let that hurt go! You can't start healing until you prep the wound. Don't keep adding to the pain by deepening the wound. Heal first! Yes it takes time but God is capable of healing without scars. He can mend broken relationships. But most of all he can give you peace. He can calm the storm. But it is up to you to let go of what you cannot control. Be the bigger person. Do the greater deed. Forgive. Move past the past. Let God work! Be Blessed.
