2 Corinthians 9:6 – “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”
Amy and Randall had been married for eight years, and they loved each other. However, when he was angry or upset, Randall became moody and would withdraw from Amy and the kids, except for occasional outbursts of anger. When his manufacturing business was struggling, he would sit silently through dinner. Once, during this period, the children were arguing at the dinner table. Out of the blue, Randall said, “Amy, can’t you keep these children in line? I can’t even have a moment’s peace in my own home!” And with that, he stormed out of the kitchen into his home office, turned on the computer, and stayed there until the kids went to bed.
Amy was hurt and confused. But she had a pattern of “handling” Randall’s moods.

In the end, it can rule a person’s life just as crack cocaine can do.
I have prayed with great results for many males and females to be set free from the bondage of this sin. If you would like prayer, please email me at McT911@aol.com, and I can arrange a time for prayer. With females I always have a female prayer partner with me.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
