    Weary One Take Heart Because The Battle is the Lord’s with Rachel Wojo

    Weary One Take Heart Because The Battle is the Lord’s with Rachel Wojo

    Have you grown weary weathering life's storms? Loss, grief, broken relationships, and heartaches can stop us in our tracks and hold us back from walking in God's plans for our lives. But weary one take heart, because the battle is the Lord's.







    My guest this week on Fierce Calling is author, speaker, and podcast host Rachel Wojo. Her story includes heartache, divorce, loss, and grief, but God redeems the broken pieces for his glory and truly does bring beauty from ashes.







    Rachel shares about meeting her now husband, Matt, and how their redemption stories meshed together creating a beautiful marriage and family. We talk about joyful blessings amidst hard seasons as she shares her experiences as a special needs mom to Taylor, a beautiful daughter who went to be with Jesus in 2019.







    We also talk about when it's hard to pray, borrowed prayers, her book One More Step: Finding Strength When You Feel Like Giving Up, and her newest book releasing in the fall, Desperate Prayers: Embracing the Power of Prayer in Life's Darkest Moments.







    You'll be greatly encouraged and inspired by her story and the message she shares just for you. Listen in and be challenged in new ways to step into your next adventure with God.
