We all go through things that are not fair: people do us wrong, we didn’t get the promotion, we came down with an illness. You can’t stop life from happening to you, but you can choose how you respond. If you hold on to the hurt, you go around dwelling on the offense, thinking, “Why did they say that about me? Why did I lose that loved one? Why did my friend walk away?” Then, you’re opening the door to bitterness. When you’re bitter, it affects every area of your life. Bitterness poisons your attitude to where you see things in a negative light, you can’t enjoy life, there’s always something wrong. You can’t stop life from happening to you, but you can choose how you respond.
Dear Father God,
I hold up whoever is reading this right now. Lord, I don’t know their situation, but You do. I don’t know their heart, but You do. I don’t know where they been or what they’ve done, but You do and YOU STILL LOVE THEM. Father, I hold them up to You this day and pray You touch them, embrace them in a mighty way. Let all pains, agony, anxiety, depression, thoughts of being alone and confusion leave them right now.
For You have a plan and a purpose for their life. Plans to prosper them and not to harm them, but to give them hope and a future. Lord, open their eyes to see You, their ears to hear You and their hearts to receive You and all that You have for their lives. For Your ways are GREATER than anything this world could ever offer…
Nothing is too hard for You. Comfort them and give them peace oh LORD. Surround them with Your love and mercy, in Jesus mighty name I pray… Amen!
