taste of bitter

A Poison.

Poison kills, taints, chokes, and suffocates. It leaves its mark without prejudice. It offends the mighty and steals the beats of our heart.

A root.

Roots dig deep. Bury themselves beneath the surface and cause things to grow up and out. They spread and disperse, multiply and divide.

Defiling. Emptying. Binding.

It hurts...all in its path.

It. is. bitterness.

Dig it up. Cast it out. Replace it with the refreshing freedom of forgiveness, the sweet taste of love.

For the good of our soul and the glory due His name.


Drawn from my time of study this week in Hebrews 12, Acts 8, and Ruth 1.
