17: When the Answer is “No”
This is the story of a Jasmine-scented South African summer night.
This is a story about disappointment in God, and this is a conversation about the dreams that do NOT come true.
Christie and Lisa-Jo recorded this episode the week of Christie's twenty-second wedding anniversary. They marveled over the long years of their friendship, and all the dreams-come-true they have witnessed in each other's lives.
But what about those dreams that don't come true?
Can we trust a God who sometimes says NO? Is that God still good?
Lisa-Jo tells the story of her most bitter disappointment and the surprising encounter she had one warm, South African night.
