I often get in the habit of praying for God to do specific things in my life. I find myself asking for favors or praying He’ll grant my wishes. To be honest, it wasn’t until about six months ago that I finally stopped trying to control every little thing in my life and asked God to steer.
I know that God has given me my particular set of gifts for a reason, but I often can’t seem to comprehend why.
It can be challenging to let go of the bitterness that grips ahold of your mind at times, but the Bible tells us to "Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you" (Ephesians 4:31-32).
