1 John 2:11
"But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes." ESV
If we can't seem to find our spiritual direction and the Lord seems to have moved farther away from us, it's time to search our own hearts for harbored resentment and anger. If we are holding grudges or rehearsing angry thoughts about anyone or anything, we have turned off the Light of our Lord and His Holy Spirit. It is only when we let go of this resentment, forgive whoever wronged us, and ask for forgiveness from our Lord, that the Light will shine on us once again.
Lord, forgive us for harboring resentment toward others. We truly desire Your Holy Spirit to fill us with Your love and forgiveness toward those we feel have wronged us. Cleanse us Lord of the negative hold of anger and hatred that leaves us stumbling around in the darkness. In Your name we pray, Amen.
