Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. We have a choice. We have power over what controls us and what doesn’t.
There are certain emotions and feelings that we have no business entertaining. Some things need to be thrown out if our life and our hearts. This is because these things harm us more than they help us. They put us in places where are character and our very word is compromised. The sad behavior that allows these emotions to control us is our inability to let go. Our struggle in letting go of the things that negatively influence our actions and inactions.
Truth is no one is immune to these emotions but everyone has the power to their reaction. The decision to be affected negatively by any of these emotions, whether bitterness, anger, slander, etc. is in our hands. We have power over bitterness, bitterness has no power over us. But if we chose to relinquish that power over to it, it will gladly take it.
Get rid of everything that cause these things to ran rampant in your life. Get rid of it all because it hurts no one else but you. Free up your heart and let loose everything that has a hold on you. Do not allow anything or anyone ruin anything for you. You have power over you so take it.
