    Great is Your Faithfulness

    Episode 8 of Season 2 tracks the lament recorded in Lamentations 3:1-24.  The fact that this passage was canonized under the inspiration of the Spirit is an amazing example of the permission granted to weak humans to go through a process in the face of pain.  But where the raw emotion is on display in this passage, it is also accompanied by an act of the will to land squarely in truth.

Powerfully centering!

In a time where there are so many distractions and ideas that oppose simplicity and devotion to Jesus, this podcast is refreshingly simple, but also powerfully potent, helping to re-center the listener on the person of Jesus and reminding us that His ways are higher than ours.
