Are You Living in Bitterness?

Posted by | Balance, Pastors' Wives, Spiritual Walk | No Comments

As we continue serving in ministry, I am sure there have been times when you were angry or maybe even bitter, but I pray you didn’t stay there.

Today is the last day of our blog “God’s Perspective While Strolling by the Sea,” and it is a great way to end this 3-part series. Matthew 7:24-27 (NIV) 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation…
