God Meets Us In The Broken Places with Ellie Holcomb The Jesus Storybook Bible Podcast

    • Christianity

Singer / songwriter Ellie Holcomb shares about the power reading and memorizing scripture has had in her life. From meeting Jesus as a child to now raising 3 kids of her own, Ellie’s journey through faith has never been linear. She’s combated the idea that we as people have to be perfect to receive God’s love, to knowing that it’s okay to struggle. It’s okay to look fear in the eyes and know God will guide us through the trauma and turmoil. She shares how she’s used tools like The Jesus Storybook Bible to further understand the grace and hope He provides while guiding her kids to learn and know they are all part of His story. 
 
Quotes
“I spent a lot of my life knowing God, knowing that He loved me, but I did not know that it was okay to not be okay.” - Ellie Holcomb 
“As I've stood up in the truth of some of the brokenness of my story, I've seen the power of the gospel, the truth of the gospel, that He meets us in our most broken places and becomes even more powerful.” - Ellie Holcomb 
“The Bible isn't a story that's mainly about us and what we should be doing. It's mainly a story about God and what he has done for us. And it's the greatest love story that's come true in real life.” - Ellie Holcomb 
“There's this idea that our hope is not just this flimsy, ‘I hope things will be better one day.’ It's a hope that is grounded in the story of Jesus. And he’s already come and defeated death, but he's also coming back to defeat death and sadness once and for all. And I'm very, very grateful for that hope that we all have, and for that hope that we get to share with the little ones in our lives.” - Ellie Holcomb
