Anger consumes my mind letting nothing else in.
Holding a grudge takes over allowing only thoughts of getting back.
Wanting to see someone hurt because I have been hurt, only keeps the wound open.
My life crippled from pain, yet I want to cause more pain.
Like a cancer, anger spreads and takes over.
It destroys joy. It gives me a heart of stone. It slowly strangles life.
Thank you, Lord, for forgiveness.
When I forgive, it lets me move on, it lets me fly again.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. (Matthew 6:12-13)
The merciful man does himself good,
But the cruel man does himself harm. (Proverbs 11:17)
