Bitterness is the negative response to hurt in our lives. Perhaps somewhere in our lives we have been hurt. It could be that we have been abandoned or neglected or abused (as well as many others) and as a result we were hurt. In the processing of the hurt we could develop bitterness towards others and God. This root of bitterness robs us of what God has for us and begins to eat at us and eventually, if allowed to go unchecked, can destroy us! These unresolved issues in our lives bring distance between us and God and cause us to sense a distance.
Hardness of heart is another aspect that undermines our relationship with God. There are so many reason why we would allow our hearts to become hard. This hardness causes a hindrance or a blockage that leaves us feeling alienated from God!
