You don’t have to live with bitter roots.
You need to ask God to show you what’s causing you to be painful.
Perhaps it’s somebody you need to forgive, perhaps it’s a dream that didn’t work out that you’re still upset about, perhaps it’s a mistake you made, and you’re still beating yourself up.
If you’ll be honest with yourself and say, “God, help me to get this root of bitterness out of me”. That’s the first step to getting rid of a bitter root!
