Often we hold onto these toxic things in our lives and they become part of who we are. Often people that end up in hospitals are the people who ignore problems, they ignore the issues.

Thankfully the blood of Jesus saves us. Christ dwells in us! The blood of Christ allows not only for our salvation but our hearts to function properly and therefore the rest of our body (life) to function properly.
