Blackheads of Bitterness

This is one of my favorite spiritual beauty treatments to hear about!
#Dont Boast or deny the truth

We all have them. The stubborn, annoying, unwanted little demons otherwise named as blackheads. The development of blackheads and how to get rid of them are not well known. However, we do know they clog up the pores, and they multiply rather quickly.

As a creative writer I like to contrast the outer with the inner. Isn’t it crazy how we can also see a connection to the heart with blackheads? I think of bitterness as a blackhead that can literally clog up our spirit man. Not only that, but the Bible says in Hebrews 12:15 that a bitter root in someone’s heart can grow up to defile many. Bitterness has the potential to corrupt everyone around you.

And just like blackheads, we can all struggle with bitterness. Just when you think you got rid of bitterness, someone cuts you off in the other lane and love is NOT what…

About ThasiaAwad

Hi everyone! I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm Thasia Awad, author of Lord Make Me Good Ground: A Personal Journey to Cultivating the Heart and Promoting Lasting Fruit. This book was written from a personal desire to become good ground, like the one Jesus spoke of in The Parable of the Sower. Before my pursuit, I thought this meant that I had to make sure I was the most presentable, respectable and upright Christian I could be in order to reap a harvests of good rewards from God. As this pursuit grew, I realized that the way I perceived the parable was all wrong because my heart was wrong and even though I looked the part, I rarely dealt with my heart issues therefore, never truly fruitful. As this parable unraveled and came alive in my life, the Lord showed me that He was not interested in making my outward man look good, but He was pursuing after the inner man (my heart) so that I could truly be good, which I also found was no one person’s job! This journey has challenged me in every way, to dig beyond the surface of my existence and has stripped me of superficial and worldly thinking of what it means to be fruitful. As a result, God was able to reach into my inner man and confront my secret motives, desires and the bondage of my subconscious mind that kept me unfruitful. I am still on my journey but I am also on a new journey that includes helping others to become more self aware of the issues that lie deep within their hearts in hopes to begin a path true fruitfulness in their lives.
