|I am in Pain !!|
Is there an attitude that will not let you go? Such as Fear, Anger, Revenge, Bitterness or Resentment and you find it Difficult to Forgive those who have hurt you?

God gave me this parable that may help you.
Let us say that you are entertaining a tooth ache. Aspirin does not help so you go to the dentist. He takes an ex-ray and after examination determines that you have an ABSCESSED and INFECTED tooth. It must be removed because it is LIFE threatening.
The dentist has to work fast, so he grabs his equipment and the nurse holds you down by your shoulders.
Now this is going to HURT and there will be some BLEEDING, as the dentist works to pull out the diseased tooth with its long roots.
Out it comes with a lot of puss and ugly stuff. The dentist uses some special CLEANER to flush out all the poison, gives you a shot of ANTI-BIOTIC, AND tells you that he got it all and you can now rejoice.

Do you understand or must I explain? Some will need it explained so here goes !
The infected tooth is your temptation, habit, ungodly desires, or an addiction that the Holy Spirit says MUST be removed from your heart. It will hurt because your flesh still wants to keep this (tooth).
When you realize keeping the (tooth) will cause your death, you allow Jesus to remove it; while the Holy Spirit holds you down to complete the work.
Jesus uses his Precious Blood to flush out the venom that was seeking to destroy you. The Holy Spirit gives you a jolt of His Electricity to let you know you are free.
Oh yes, do not sign up to get an "implant" to replace your missing (tooth.)
