What do these things have in common? Well I like to refer to the quote above by Buddha (and I often do) when I say that these emotions ravage your body the same as if you drank poison and expected the other person to die! They ravage your heart, your soul, your mind, they do nothing in comparison ( if anything at all) to the other person!!
So why do we do this to ourselves?! God does not want us to ravage our bodies with the likes of anger,revenge,grudges,mean-spirited actions or words, UNForgiveness, etc…..
What can we do to stop? I start with prayer. Prayer for the other person. Praying for those who have transgressed against us opens a window for God to work His miracles! And sometimes….Oh MY do we need a miracle to get over things!
It can be a simple prayer…..
“Today I want to pray for those who have hurt me! Please be with them today and everyday.”
Crack that window!
