Once, after a devastating loss, I spent several months desolate, buried in a deep depression that gave way to intense bitterness tinged with hatred.
My journey through bitterness, far from perfect, is also far from who I am now. As God’s children, we are not defined by our mistakes or our circumstances. In other words, our pasts cannot hold us hostage. Why? Because God keeps God’s promises.
