Love overcomes darkness!
As a man who once had a very hardened heart, I can tell you a black, stone cold heart, IS NOT a thing of beauty. Let me share a bit, so that you may understand. After what seemed like innumerable heartbreaks, I had allowed myself to become bitter,angry,even rageful.
I have learned though that Love can reach even the blackest heart, and change it. Once you TRULY know Love, you can let go of bitterness,blackness,darkness, and rage. There was a time I HATED women, I am not going to lie.
I thought they were all out to con, knowing what I know now, and being the Christian that I am now, it pains me to say I EVER hated women, but they say confession is good for the soul. Love changed and rescued me from the hatred I once held.
(I do find misogyny of any form disgusting now, when I used to let bitterness consume me though, I understood it because I was an active practitioner, it’s like the man who wallows in the mire, he doesn’t see how filthy he got until he leaves it behind.)
If you are bitter, if life or people have pained you, Let Love in and let Love rule, God is Love!
