Still Waiting: When God Doesn’t Give You What You Want w/ Ann Swindell | Ep. 208

Still Waiting: When God Doesn’t Give You What You Want w/ Ann Swindell | Ep. 208

Are you in a place of waiting? Do you feel like there is seemingly no end in sight? In this episode, author and speaker Ann Swindell joins us to discuss what it looks like to wait and trust in Jesus. Ann shares about her own season of waiting and how it has led her back to the truth of God’s Word time and time again. This conversation will challenge you to consider your identity in Christ as it relates to waiting and it will encourage you to reject defining yourself solely by what you lack. If you or someone you know is in a season of waiting, we hope you will join us on this episode.
