Some things need to change.

Why do we hold onto things that eat at our hearts?

“Bitterness is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die.”

I got that quote off of a friend's blog, she's not quite sure where she heard it, but it's stuck in my head. When things that I'm not conscientiously focusing on stick with me thoughout the day, I discern that as the voice of God.

Bitterness, lack of forgiveness, whatever you want to call it...

Life is just too short.

Brandon Heath - I'm Not Who I Was

I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I'm not who I was
I used to be mad at you
A little on the hurt side too
But I'm not who I was

I found my way around
To forgiving you
Some time ago
But I never got to tell you so

I found us in a photograph
I saw me and I had to laugh
You know, I'm not who I was
You were there, you were right above me
And I wonder if you ever loved me
Just for who I was

When the pain came back again
Like a bitter friend
It was all that I could do
To keep myself from blaming you

I reckon it's a funny thing
I figured out I can sing
Now I'm not who I was
I write about love and such
Maybe 'cause I want it so much
I'm not who I was

I was thinking maybe I
I should let you know
I am not the same
But I never did forget your name

Well the thing I find most amazing
In amazing grace
Is the chance to give it out
Maybe that's what love is all about

I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I'm not who I was
