I have seen the weed of bitterness take root in the human heart. I have watched its tendrils wrap around the heart and squeeze out life and joy. I have seen hearts harden and bitterness replace tenderness with suspicion, joy with distrust and care for others with disdain. Once bitterness takes root it destroys relationships, drives out joy and leaves a wasteland of emptiness and grief.
Listen my child, do not delay, take the antidote for bitterness immediately and often. What is the antidote? Thankfulness. Bitterness cannot take root in a grateful heart. Bitterness cannot survive when the joy and peace of thankfulness are present. Oh my child, take the weed killer of thankfulness today, tomorrow and every day of your life so you are not overcome by bitterness.
The Cure, I AM
