When we…go back in to the past and rake up all the troubles we’ve had, we end up reeling and straggering through life. Stability and peace of mind come by living in the moment.
When others hurt us in ways we don’t deserve, at some point we will come to the crossroads of decision. We will have to look our pain square in the face and ask, “Am I going to hang on to my anger and do violence to myself, or am I going to forgive those who have wounded me? Am I going to allow bitterness to poison and putrefy my soul, or am I going to invite God to empower me to let the anger go?”
