The Better Pill vs. The Bitter Pill

The industry of pharmaceutics offers up a variety of pills to manage or cure our physical sicknesses, as well as our emotional and mental illnesses. Whether on TV or social media platforms, we are on overload with commercials advertising the latest, greatest---fix! There's the blue pill (🤷🏽‍♀️), the orange pill, the red pill, the multi-colored pill, and of course, the many variations of the white pill. Choices can be confusing, as the options are immense.


Well, sometimes there is a choice, otherwise, to take a "bitter" pill or a "better" pill. The Bitter one is initially easy to swallow, as it is often the feel-good remedy for hurt, disappointment, deceit, slander, etc.  The laundry list is long, and so is the damage journey. While that path has us ingesting what later becomes distasteful ingredients of the Bitter pill, we get to a rest stop, and take the Better pill instead. It is a prayerful choice, no doubt, because it is not easy maneuvering through and managing pain and disappointment, especially when it's inflicted by those who we love so dearly. Seemingly, some continue to "poke the knife" without any regard for our feelings. Why? Maybe because they only seem to care about their "better?" Nevertheless, taking the high-road, we swallow the Better pill in hopes of not necessarily repairing the damage, but to continue on the journey of healing. Choosing BETTER over Bitter certainly results in FOCUS over Foolishness and PRAYER over Petty. And, bitter doesn't really taste better anyway! 😊


Father God, please help me as I continue to digest this Better pill. I need it to manage the bitterness that I sometimes taste and carry---today and always. Please heal the tartness, as I know that love is always sweetly palatable, and it is the necessary nourishment for my heart, mind, and soul. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
