When we live in bitterness, anger and not letting go of past hurts, we are living our lives in a stinky atmosphere, which hinders our blessings, and keeps others from wanting to be around us.
Most of us can’t tell we’re carrying a smell because we haven’t examined ourselves. Take whatever it is to God, and let him reveal to you what that smell is. He can and will restore what has been broken, remove past hurts, and take away that smell that once kept you from smelling like a rose.
II Corinthians 13:5 (KJV) – examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
