An opportunity to know God better, to rely on Him more, and to become more like Him? We want this pandemic to be over too. But don’t give up! You are going to make it. God is working in this hardship to make you stronger. Then, one of our listeners Jill texted us with this: “Do you think Covid 19 may be God’s judgment on the US and world for the sins like abortion, greed, pride?”We look at this tough question through the lens of the story of the bible.

If you’re in a dark night of the soul listen to the life giving words that lifted Perry. They’re for you as well. Or if you know someone in that dark place, reach out to them today.
