You only have so much emotional energy each day.
Do you know how much energy it takes to hold a grudge, to be bitter, to think about how you can pay somebody back? That’s wasting valuable energy you need for dreams, for your family, for your destiny.
God said He would give you beauty for the ashes. But here’s the key, you have to let go of the ashes before you can receive the beauty.
You can’t hold on to the hurts, the bitterness, live offended, and see the new things God has in store.
You have to clear out the clutter; that’s what makes room for God to give you the beauty!
