Three weeks ago we celebrated a milestone on the podcast: 100 episodes! To continue celebrating this milestone, we are reaching back into the archives this week to one of the most popular and most played episodes out of these 100: episode number 28, originally titled It’s All Going to Be Okay. It’s no wonder this episode has been played a bunch, I believe every now and then we can use a reminder that it is all going to be okay. Next week we will be highlighting another popular past episode. I pray these encourage your heart and add a lift to your step. If you’re wondering will it really be okay?, then this episode is timely. Share it with someone else who could use it as well. Let’s get to it.
Life is an adventure, isn’t it?
In this adventure we each experience ups and downs, high mountain top places where we feel on top of the world, and low valleys where dark days reside. Sometimes we experience both in the very same day, or in the very same minute! One thing is for sure, we love the sunshiny days, and the dark, rainy days? Well, not so much, but those days help us appreciate the sunshiny days, don’t they?
The thing is, though, when we’re walking through uncertain times we can begin to wonder, will we be okay? We question, will this situation end up okay? Will my children be okay? Wil everything it really be okay?
Maybe you’re wondering this right now. Maybe you’re finding yourself in a dark season, in the middle of a very trying time, in awful circumstances where no relief is in sight. Even though I can’t physically sit with you today, I pray God meets you through this podcast to encourage your heart. To point you to His truth, and to pass on His strength for your soul, no matter what you may be going through.
So, why at times does life have to be so difficult?
Thankfully, we don’t have to look too far for the answer. We can open our Bibles and flip through the first few pages to find it. The Bible begins with the book of Genesis, and we see God’s design in the garden of Eden was perfection in every sense of the word. He created it all and saw it was good.
But man stepped in in Genesis 3 and chose a snack from the tree that was off-limits, prompted by the enemy of our souls. Consequently, everything changed in that bite. Including the world we live in today.
God didn’t leave us without hope, however.
As a result, we have reason to believe it will really be okay.
