Feelings of resentment and anger may trigger old wounds that the Lord would desire to heal us of; things that we thought we were "over" can so easily surface when the right wave comes along and pounds relentlessly along those weak stones in our foundation. We find out quickly in times of trouble the areas where we need to grow. (Google image, Hoover dam).
