Have you ever felt that you could not go on to live another day? Today’s guest shares about the devastating accident that took her family from her, and the faithful, loving Father that continues to help her deal with the grief and fill her with hope. Find out how Lora Jones has pressed into her faith in Christ at a time when she was tempted to stop believing. God is using her story to show others who are going through trials that God’s Word speaks life into our story, no matter how hopeless our situation seems to us.
The Day of the Christian Martyr is coming up this weekend. Wednesday morning we will visit with Todd Nettleton about this day and about modern day martyrs; we’ll also hear the latest news from our persecuted brothers and sisters from around the world. Be listening for ways to pray and commemorate June 29th, The Day of the Christian Martyr.
