Do you find it hard to trust? Maybe wonder if God even hears your prayers? I know we aren’t shocked by the questions we have for God, or how weak we sometimes feel in our request, but what about spending some time sharing stories about the times HE DOES answer? What about sharing stories of miracles and the power of prayer? Would that encourage you today?
“IF ONLY I KNEW WHEN THE LAST TIME WAS GOING TO BE THE LAST TIME…….
I would have put off all the things I had to do.” A very powerful lyric from the Casting Crowns song, Scars In Heaven.
Hearing this song, in light of hearing the news of my dear friend Dr. Garry E. Milley, who passed away in his sleep this past week, was what inspired me to write this blog for you today. Dr. Milley was my professor, a mentor, and dear friend, and I pray you are encouraged, as I share some golden nuggets from our interview, that I always PLANNED on sharing.
Life threatening illness, loss, depression, anxiety, the list of giants we have to face are endless.
Unfortunately there will always be something to fight through!!! That’s the harsh reality of life. But what I have come to realize is that we can’t always control what happens to us, but we can control how we respond.
Over the past four years, I’ve interview some amazing people with incredible stories of courage who understand this principle.
Contagious Courage! What is the back story of MY story of courage? How was I able to go from a life of brokenness and hopelessness to living a life of hope and contagious courage? Well in this LOOKING BACK CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, I want to relive this segment from my NIGHT OF COURAGE gala, to encourage you that you see, you can move forward in spite of overwhelming fears and insecurities . But also see, that “I’m not courageous because I don’t ever fear, I am courageous because I don’t let fear control me.”
Are you walking through a tough situation now where you are struggling to find your faith and maybe causing you to lose hope?
Maybe you have concluded that God is not hearing or listening to your prayers?
Well today your going to meet a strong woman who kept believing in God’s promise, even when her circumstances tried to make her believe otherwise, and it’s because of her strong Heritage of faith I can stand on mine!
