Bitterness is Like A Choke-Hold

Bitterness is like a choke-hold…
that always keeps you down…
and when you have it…
little happiness is ever found.
For everything is then seen…
from a negative prospective…
where something is always wrong…
and even good seems defective.
For the eyes of bitterness…
turns everything dark…
and it’s hard to move forward…
when all’s negative you embark.
For every step forward…
is then two steps back…
as you have a strong-hold…
that keeps pulling you back.
For the “choke-hold” of bitterness…
chokes the life out of you…
with all things negative…
with no happiness to look forward to.
So let go of bitterness…
and break this “choke-hold”…
so you can hope again…
with a newfound freedom to behold.
And forgiveness is the Key…
to finally break away…
letting go of all the past…
and step into a new day.
For bitterness and unforgiveness…
go hand in hand…
and until we cut this root…
in darkness we will stand.

Dear Lord, You see the multitude who have been held back by bitterness and unforgiveness in their lives. Help them to let go of their pasts and all who have hurt them to walk in freedom into their future. Bring healing and restoration to all with Your Peace that surpasses all understanding… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
