This writing came about as a result of God leading me to watch the DVD, Dark Roots, Withered Souls by Bill Schnoebelen. At the end of this video, he mentioned Edward Kurath and his book, “I Will Give You Rest”. I ordered the book and as soon as I opened it I was so drawn by all my eyes fell upon. The next day I called Ed Kurath and we talked for a while and he prayed for me.
He mentioned that I had a jungle within which gave me to understand that he understood why I was struggling so, given all I had been thru in my life, and also that I had a lot to work thru. The subject is the roots of bitterness and I have never felt so free in my life knowing that I can address this problem WITH JESUS that I haven’t taken care of from the past and also that I can daily or whenever I have negative emotions about others or God, go thru the process of being set free from the roots of bitterness. I pray you will consider the work of Ed Kurath and his books which are listed at: http://www.divinelydesigned.com
I have not found any other work written in this clear way to set people free from the roots of bitterness.
THE JUNGLE WITHIN
A jungle I may have within
Thru all manner of sin
Yet I know with all my heart
That as I do my part
Jesus will save me from this dense tangle
Which grew into a terrible mangle.
I am no longer afraid
To face these dark roots that were made
I am free from being in terrors
Just because of these roots and errors.
Yes, forgiveness is true living
Towards others and myself, bringing
Fresh songs of joy
With a brand new voice!
Jesus is Not Beyond the Menagerie
That He can clearly see.
No, He is the Savior and Master of all
And on Him I will call ~
And pray to be free from this sin I bear
No matter how long its been there
To find the freedom reserved for me
As He opens the way and I agree
With the truth I have feared to realize
For so many years…I listened to lies.
But now I face with my Savior
All that remains behind closed doors
And rejoice in this process of being set free
To serve my King and help others to see
That our Treasure Inside can awaken
And no longer be in a prison.
That it IS possible to be released ~
From this BITTER ROOT
As I keep on giving it the DIVINE BOOT!
