It’s A Room!

And not the very pit of hell.

  1. Ok, so sorry, not sure how else to get this big, fat, thank you to you. You do not know me, but I read a comment of yours on another blog, came here, and I think I clicked on something that led me to your old blog? Do you have an old blog? However it came to be, I saw on the side bar a link to an article on bitterness. Bitterness has been destroying my family. I thought (as bitterness does!) that my husband was destroying our family, but it was me. ME. I just want to say thank you for having that link on your blog. I am sure it is going to change the course of my family….for the better.

    I look forward to actually reading your blog! Once of course I get off my knees (praying), and getting some spring cleaning done. Though the room above looks pretty decluttered to me ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you said you moved recently? I think if ‘hate’ were allowed, it should definitely be a hate of moving. I have deep feelings about moving! Ha, ha!

    Blessings to you and your family,

    • I am so glad! Yes, I have a link to that on my old blog and this blog as well. I think it was one of the most important things I read when I was a new Christian and newly married. And I wondered why I never heard it before or why pastors weren’t constantly preaching it. Because we’re constantly doing it. I think the author said somewhere else that “It may or may not be a sin to give offense. But it’s always a sin to take it.” As soon as I acknowledged that bitterness was a sin I started to see it everywhere. The obvious red flags were having imaginary arguments in my head or recounting what someone else did wrong. As soon as I would see those I knew I was being bitter and I would stop and confess it. It was like wrestling. But it’s so much better to see it and put up a good fight than to unwittingly go down the path of bitterness and let it put down roots. Then I could never be upset at my husband without seeing my own sin as well. And by the time I had taken care of my sin then his had turned out to be negligible. But when I would give way to bitterness it’s a whole different party. It’s so easy to think of it as a little sin or to make excuses for it, but it is so much better to hate sin and kick it in the shins right off. I think you would also like his booklet entitled, “How to Maintain Joy in Your Life.” And thank you for reminding me of these things as well. You’re right, moving is the pits. ๐Ÿ™‚
