Episode 89: Regular practice of fasting helped him heal from bitterness and anger Limitless Spirit

    • Christianity

In John 16, verse 33, Jesus reminds us that we will have trouble in this world, but He encourages us to take heart because He has overcome the world. Sometimes troubles become even deeper after we accept Christ.
 In this episode, our host Helen Todd speaks with Tony Stephens, whose story shows us that we can have peace in Christ even when we go through trials. Tony was raised in church but dealt with anger and bitterness after losing both of his parents at a young age. But after deciding to return to church as an adult in a rocky marriage, he was encountered by God and baptized in the Holy Spirit. His trials wouldn’t end there but would only get worse. Just before being sent to Iraq in the special forces after 9/11, Tony lost his job, his wife filed for divorce, and he was homeless for a period. Learning how to deal with adversity and heal from bitterness and anger Tony discovered a practice that transformed his life. You’ll hear his entire story in this episode of the Limitless Spirit Podcast.
