God has a plan for you … Really?

I’ve got specific instructions for this listener to take action. Episode #689 November 08, 2019 Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re … Read More

Don’t chase the snake of revenge

revenge

If you feel like someone has done you wrong, don’t seek revenge – listen in. How often I see people chasing the snake and seeking revenge in their own lives.  The company folds or you just simply get laid off.  The immediate reaction may include anger, resentment, bitterness, and backstabbing.  These lead to discouragement, frustration, guilt and depression.  Be aware that all of these revenge focused reactions and feelings focus on the past.  Turning around and looking to the future opens up confidence, boldness, and enthusiasm.
