We hang onto past hurts, relationships, attitudes and emotions like unclaimed baggage and claim that we lost them at the terminal illness of emotions.
“People hold carry-on grudges, bearing the emotional bickering of a crying baby of complaints, or nurse a grudge to growth!”
Our emotions page Nurse Grudge so she can feed the issue, make it grow, and then everything is full-grown!
As much as we say all is forgiven we hold fast to grudges because they permeate pain out of our pores, and pour the cold sweats of hurt and pain.
Everyday we look to lose weight while we continue to use the nurse of complaints.
We carry around the old baggage while adding the new people, relationships, beliefs, acquaintances, jobs, etc. to the fold! Our backs can’t handle all the pressure as we inch closer to the wall.
The complaints add worry to the weight you bear by adding more baggage to your frame of mind. A foundation that is already cracking at the cornerstone! “But I have been hurt in the past!”
So what! We all have!
When you carry a grudge with you, you give life to the person, issue, or hurt. You continuously get sucker punched in the kidney’s causing you to keel over!
You gave ‘IT’ power!
Once you have forgiven that does not mean that you have now given something up. It says that you have opened up your heart to receive a message of how to repair a wound.
If you are carrying a grudge you will never be able to run with God if you are weighed down with grief!
