You can get bitter, or you can get better

The best selling book entitled You Can Grow Bitter or You Can Grow Better got it’s inspiration from a young woman who had just received word that her husband had been killed in a farming accident, leaving her alone with three small children. “I don’t know how I am going to be able to get along without him,” she sobbed. “But I do know one thing. I can either get bitter or I can get better.”
That is probably the hardest and the most important lesson of life. None of us can avoid pain. The only thing we have control over is how we react to it. We can either get bitter or we can get better. And our greatest resource in this is faith, because faith reminds us that we are never alone. “When you walk through the fire,” God says, “I will be with you, and through the waters, they shall not overcome you.”
