No More Bitter Only Blessings

This past week has been a little difficult for me.  I needed to step back and really put myself at His feet.  I felt the enemy really working his way in.  My heart began to fill with bitter, anger, and hurt.  I was bitter to those who have hurt me. Angry at myself for being bitter, and hurt that I took my eyes off of Him.  All week I put my focus on my family, the kids' school, and prayer.  Throughout the week God started showing me what I needed to do.  Just like He always does.  I am happy to say that my heart is full and happy.  I just love how He grips on and never lets go.
