How Bitterness can Keep you from God's Love

Agapè (Godly) Love is: patient, kind, gentle, forgiving, merciful, generous, abounding in grace and everlasting.

A broken-heart is one of the most difficult things to face in the human experience.
It can cause one's heart to become harden, untrusting, unforgiving; forged into a place of isolation, regret and shame. 

"Woe to me for my hurt! My wound is severe But I say, "Truly this is an infirmity and I must bear it."
Jeremiah 10:19

In this instance the prophet receives an assignment from the Lord, however he is greatly discouraged and in distress. While in this place of pain he declares himself unworthy of Grace and clings to suffering. 

This is the mindset that many of us have in times of hardship. As it relates to broken-heartedness, we blame ourselves, chastise and rebuke ourselves for the decisions we've made. These negative thoughts then manifest into an emotional strong-holds pulling us further away from the Love that God has to Restore us. We reject our loved ones who are there to support us, our community who is there is to receive our transparency and offer encouragement and the especially the intimacy and closeness with Christ, who always makes time to heal those who come to him. 

Bitterness can have serious psychological effects on our lives, our ability to make to make sound decisions is threatened by the sorrow that bitterness bring, our acceptance of physical touch or embrace (a hug, a kiss, a hand shake, a shoulder tap or gentle nudge), a lack of enthusiasm or interest, and/or lack of appetite. 

But the Lord would have us to be of a light countenance, not bearing the heavy weight of a stronghold that robs you of the Love, Peace, Joy and Freedom of which we as Believers are entitled to. 

"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man of trusts in Him." 
Psalms 34:8

I encourage you. I charge you.
Woman of Excellence, eat of the fruits of the Spirit and experience the inner workings of the Divine Love of Christ.
God has placed these fruits within you, the virtues of your Spirit Man.
Lay hold of them and put them into practice.
Apply them to yourself and be HEALED.

It's no secret that Prince George's County breeds some of the most brilliant, talented and exceptional people...we see them out in the World, on screen, in our communities, a part of our family and inner circle. It is a unique location, Prince George's...that rests just outside of the Washington DC city limits where opportunities to work in the U.S. government are provided to families of Color and diverse backgrounds--educated, qualified, hardworking, committed and connect.

Prince George's County is the most affluent Black county in the nation, on record. Even more than Dallas, TX or parts of California and New York. What we have here is special. It is something to be proud of, to aspire to and beyond and certain past on the legacy of Excellence that proceeds our community.

And have our ancestors, grandparents and parents to thank for making the decision, striving for a b…
