 Season Four Finale: When You Feel Like a Failure | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 00:13:09

“Wouldn’t I have rather gotten the outcomes that I wanted? Yes. Of course. I WANT to live in this fantasy world where things happen the way I want them to when I want them to. A part of me still wants God to answer prayers in my timing. I want him to bend his will to my desires. But am I thankful that I didn’t get the outcomes I wanted? Also yes. Because through this journey I was once again awakened to the sovereignty and power of God and was able to watch him orchestrate things that I wouldn’t have chosen, but needed nonetheless. And at the same time, I was able to learn more and more what it means to bend my will to HIS desires — and there in that surrender lies all the answers I need. Why didn’t my business succeed? It doesn’t matter. Why did I lose so much money in the process? God will provide. Why did we get hit with these unexpected expenses? The King is on the Throne. Why did I have to lay this dream down? My Father has good plans for me. What do I do now? Where do I go next? He’s already gone before me.” Press play to hear more. Thank you for listening to another season of the podcast, my friends!
