015: Discovering God in Difficult Times with Liz Curtis Higgs

 

God wants to prove Himself as faithful in your life!

In this episode, my dear friend and best-selling author, Liz Curtis Higgs, shares about her encounter with the goodness and faithfulness of God in the midst of her journey with cancer.  What many would consider an obstacle to avoid, Liz has discovered to be one of God’s greatest paths to revealing Himself.

Whether the battle you are facing is spiritual, physical, emotional, relational, financial or anything else, God is good and He is able. Will you put your trust in Him today?
