My heart was bitter:  theunfetteredpreacher

Psalm 73:21-23
New Living Translation (NLT)
Then I realized that my heart was bitter,
and I was all torn up inside.  

I was so foolish and ignorant—
I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you.   

Yet I still belong to you;  you hold my right hand.

The psalmists prayer, then my own.

While struggling with my pride, conceit and imaginations. 

I look up, and realize that the problem is me.  

While I misunderstood, bitterness and envy  were tearing me up inside.

I was a wounded animal, lashing out in pain and frustration.

Yet, You were there, holding my hand.  

I was embraced and inclosed, by Your love.  

Forgiven.   Thank You.  Amen
