Today on Bold Steps with Pastor Mark Jobe … we’re learning to choose grace … and release bitterness. If you’ve ever spent any time gardening, you know just how troublesome weeds can be. At first, there seem to be just a few here and there, small enough to be ignored. And suddenly, the next thing you know, they’ve spread all over … invading every space and choking out the life of your garden. Well, just like weeds, the wounds and pains from our past can end up spreading into places they shouldn’t, if we don’t take care of them right away. On today’s program, Mark concludes a message he started last week that focuses our attention on what to do when we experience hurt and pain. It’s simply titled, Hurt, and we’ll be learning that if we don’t confront our hurts and disappointments, they can quickly overtake our lives … and become deep roots of bitterness.
