Bitter Or Better?

Posted By on July 27, 2015


“And let us not grow weary while doing good….” Galatians 6:9, NKJV.

When trials and troubles come into our life, we have a question to answer. That question is this; will this trial make me bitter or better?

The choice is ours. No one can make it for us. We are in complete control of this decision and the outcome. We can’t blame God, satan or others. It is up to us and the outcome belongs to us.

I’ve seen trials and troubles make some people very bitter. I’ve see trials and troubles make some people even better than they already were.

Trials will come into our life. Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation”.

What we do with the tribulation is up to us.

Bitterness will separate us from our family and friends. Bitterness will stall the spiritual growth that God has started in our lives and until we rid ourselves from the bitterness, we will be frozen in our walk with God.

Be encouraged today in knowing that you do not have to become bitter from the trials and troubles that you face in your life.

You can become better from the trials and troubles that you face in your life. You will be more useful to God, more appreciated by your family and friends, and will have the “peace that passes all understanding” from God.
