So, You Want To Hold A Grudge

Is a grudge worth the daily resentment that saps the life out of you? Take a minute to reflect on how short life is and how much happiness each day can bring. Want to be mad, withdrawn, or stressed out? Go ahead, hold a grudge and be miserable? It’s a choice with many side effects, whether a person is willing to admit it or not.

So you think holding a grudge gives you the advantage or evens a score. Ask yourself, “If I hold a grudge will it lift the burden of pain or disgust from my heart?” A reasonable person would say no, it does not lift any burdens or pain from my heart.

Spending some quality time on a plan to find common ground or to find a reasonable approach to reconcile a grudge often leads to compromise. A good concept is to present your concerns in a respectful, genuine manner to the offending party. Sometimes there are no perfect resolutions, but you may be able to live with agreeable variations of an imperfect outcome. If you are able to resolve a grudge, your heart will be clear and you will be free from the net that has been cast. You will feel relaxed, liberated from the daily torment that creates anger, hate, vindictiveness, and the wasteful use of time spent scheming to overpower someone by devious or spiteful means.

If attempts to resolve a grudge continues to fail, it’s time to make a decision. Do you want days, weeks, months of sulking, do you want to spend the rest of your life being perturbed, or do you want to forgive, forget, and move on? Is a grudge worth stewing over, or worth being left unresolved while festering more and more? Is it worth the daily resentment that saps the life out of you? Take a minute to reflect on how short life is and how much happiness each day can bring. Want to be mad, withdrawn, or stressed out? Go ahead, hold a grudge and be miserable? Holding a grudge is a choice with many side effects, whether a person is willing to admit it or not.

From years of personal experience, I will tell you the sooner a grudge can be resolved, the better. I’ve held onto grudges that have absolutely sapped the energy right out of me for days until I finally came to the realization, this can’t go on.  Resolve your grudge, believe me a clear heart makes for a happy life and that leads to the desire to keep a clear heart.

Enemies Tempt by Arrogance & Evil

Happiness in the heart in the heart with God at the helm is better than all the arrogance and evil spewed by those who thrown away Gods principles. Pray to God with all your heart and blessings to all.

The temptation and excitement to be drawn into devious situations that promise fulfillment is always present, ready to nab you at your weakest moment. We have all been there and hopefully overcame the challenges of that moment. True happiness occurs from following your moral code that should have been cultivated through teachings of righteousness at a young age and continuing through adulthood. A person flourishes because they have built their foundation for life on scriptural principals. Evil will challenge every day to dominate thoughts and actions, but it cannot win if a person calls upon the righteous foundation on which they stand.

Many countries stand up and crow, they worship their money, their power, and they promote acts which poison their people. This does not have to happen, but we allow it to happen because we follow instead of leading. We all have the power to fracture the control that chokes the human spirit and the power to expel all who seek to exploit us. The immense power of people praying for action and guidance to overcome the grip that has been slowly tightening around our life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness can free us from those who set out to control, manipulate, and exploit us for monetary or personal gain. The force of evil never wants us to be unified because there is colossal power through unity as a human race and unity in prayer. Constant division by political parties, race, gender, internal and national conflicts keeps us in an uproar, unable to come together as a country or a world for our spiritual growth and awakening. We find it hard to concentrate and the everyday static from vile sources seek to thwart our search for truth. Evil is persistent, often unseen but it can be recognized and will always be defeated by goodness.

The arrogant infest our life everyday, they tell us how we should live, what we should do, and how we should spend our money. Many of the pompous schmucks speak out of both sides of their mouth, telling us what we want to hear while doing something else. They believe their lies, they are deceitful, and place little value on life. Words from the mouths of the conceited wreak of venom, their flamboyant speech is insincere.  They will crow and they will eventually belly flop on their own words.  They will hang them selves because they have defied righteousness.

Our enemies taunt us. They say we have no God who will help us in our time of need. Yet we know this is not true, still our enemies persist. The day is promised when our enemies will be reduced to nothing.  We must take refuge in that promise.  When we go to bed at night and roll out in the morning, who sustained us through the night? Who will sustain us through the day? Who do we call upon when we are in distress, who do we call upon when we need mercy and our prayer to be heard? Who lends us an ear for our words, and who do we call upon when we want to live in safety. There is only one correct answer to these questions, the answer is God. Our offerings are those spoken of in the scriptures, of morality, and goodness.

Happiness in the heart with God at the helm is better than all the deceitful arrogance and evil spewed by those who have lost Gods principles.  Stick to your morals, values and principles. Pray to God with all your heart and blessings to all.
