This is something that the Lord has been helping me with and has laid it on my heart to pray for certain people over the last year or so. It's working, it amazes me how God will change our hearts about some one, if we just start with a prayer. Like they say "it may not change them, but it will always change you" ❤️❤️

I'm sure that the only one that is impressed with the bitter root in a persons life is the devil.  "It is perfectly legitimate for believers to suffer grief. Our Lord Himself was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. THOUGH GRIEF MAY REACH TO THE ROOTS OF OUR SOULS, it must not result in bitterness." ~ R.C. Sproul

I see this type of quote a lot, but it isn't biblical. Being sorry (repentance for an offense) is required for true forgiveness to be granted. Luke 17:3, Matthew 18:15 Letting go & letting God handle an offender is often necessary because an apology or change of heart will never come; however, true forgiveness is being able to go forward in a relationship as if the wrong never happened. God only requires this if repentance occurs. He doesn't require us to be okay with continued mistreatment.
