011: Hope Your Heart Needs with Holly Gerth


“Hope is not about a result, it is about a relationship!”

In this episode, distinguished author, Holly Gerth shares from her newest devotional, Hope Your Heart Needs, about the names of God and how each one reveals a unique aspect of who He wants to be in our lives.

God sees you right where you are, dear friend. He delights in you and He longs to give you hope and inner rest.

Holly understands the inner struggles faced by so many women today and she invites us to look to God and allow Him to be all that He promises to be.

Important Takeaways from Show

  • Hope is not about an outcome, it is placing our trust fully in who God is and what He has for us!
  • Every name of God is a reminder of who He is and how He cares for you.
  • The name “Morning Star” represents the planet Venus, which rises in the darkest part of the night, just before dawn. It is God’s reminder that He will come into the darkest part of your story, when it feels like there is no hope, and bring the dawn.
  • The name “Cornerstone” reminds us that Jesus offers to take on all the weight we carry.
  • As our “Good Shepherd,” God looks for those in the middle, who may feel invisible and just pretending everything is okay.
  • No matter how hard we push ourselves, we cannot outrun fear or our inner struggles. God invites us to slow down and rest.
  • Inner rest is not found in walking away from something, it is in walking towards someone.
  • God uses our broken places to reveal Himself. We are invited to enjoy a divine process and beautiful journey with Him!
