>No bitter root

>

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.  See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.
Hebrews 12:14-15 

I have every reason to be bitter about this whole situation. I could name off dozens of reasons about why I could be wholeheartedly disappointed.

I could get a bad taste in my mouth about the Army, especially since this is the first experience we’ve had with the “real” Army (i.e. not in training anymore).

It’s going to have to be an everyday choice. While there is peace, there is a Thief who wants to steal, kill and destroy my peace. And I’m not gonna let ‘im.

Here’s to covering my bitterness with the grace of God.
