I just wanted to give a shout-out to all that given well-wishes!! Thank YOU!!
I know I need to work on my bitterness, for so long it was held against the Church. I guess I got even more incensed because all this time I've allowed other people tell me what Christianity and the bible is all about, I should've done my own research. But, that really is water under the bridge isn't it? Who cares, all that matters is the here and now.
I've got to learn to just give my anger to the Lord, so he can open my heart to more love. Its easier said then done, I know. Returning hate for hate doesn't do any good. Just perpetuates the circle of anger and violence even further.
Well with the teachings of Ephesians 4:31-32 and y'all's strength and words of hope and my own burgeoning one I can overcome this bitterness against those who condemn me and my brothers and sisters.
I just wish we all could eat at the Table of the Lord, without bias, without prejudice. Unfortunately, it's man's own ignorance that won't allow this to happen until he/she opens their eyes and hearts to the true message of the bible.
