For the past eight or nine months, I've been dealing with deep-seated anger toward God concerning some things going on with relationships in my life.

Every month or so, I'd think I was finally getting over my bitterness, but then I would come crashing down right back to the anger and confusion that were ruling my heart.

On the retreat, though, things changed. Being surrounded by believers who truly believe, with all their hearts, that God is just and beautiful showed me that just because God doesn't always make sense, doesn't mean that He isn't good and loving.

Through the messages, worship, and prayer times, I acknowledged my troubling emotions and told God that I wanted to be committed to pursuing Him and letting go of my bitterness toward Him.

I've still got a long way to go, but for the first time, I know I'm headed on the right path to healing. I thank God for using Ignite to start me on that path.
