175. Hope is a (Suffering) Person

Out of the Ordinary 175

Key Conversation Points:

  • Last week's episode is here if you’d like to listen to that first as Lisa-Jo and Christie continue to delve through the meaning of hope.
  • What conversation did Lisa-Jo and Christie have that started 14 years ago about a small God?
  • Is the Storyteller feeling sketchy to you too sometimes?
  • You’re allowed to wail and ask questions to God through suffering.  Jesus was  "acquainted with grief," just like us. Suffering isn't a sign of failure.
  • Sometimes you need a friend to hold the rope of hope, when we've lost all strength.
  • God doesn't say "I can't use her because she's in the fetal position."
  • Rom 5:3-5: "Suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character hope. And hope does not put us to shame because God's love has been poured out..."
