While reading today's devotional, "Is My Jesus Enough?", at Proverbs 31 Ministries I was reminded of a couple of Bible verses that resounded in my heart today. Habakkuk 3:17 and 18 says "Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior." This is one of those passages that I want to take some time to chew on. I may even try using it as a guide to write my own declaration of my faith in God, but I wanted to take a minute to share it now in case I forget to dig deeper into it. Maybe writing it here will help me remember to do it.

...That's about all I can say about this post by Kim. Kim is doing a Bible study, based on Martha Peace's "The Excellent Wife", with some ladies at her church and on her blog she sometimes shares some of what they are covering. In this post she lists some of the signs of bitterness and talks about how harboring bitterness can affect our marriage. I really need to spend some time pondering and praying about this. I could say "That's me" to most of the list. Ouch.
