Message from Rosie

What is the first thing we do when someone hurts us? Let’s be honest: we defend ourselves. And if we are even more honest, we must admit that one of our most elemental instincts also comes into play: the desire for revenge.

However, to fend for ourselves rather than turn to God when we have been hurt only robs us of peace and contentment.

You no longer need to depend on others to experience true peace. Regain control of your life and allow God to take control of you.
