How God Grows Us Up

Shawna can feel like she’s been left behind, especially when she looks at social media and sees other women just crushing it. But she’s learning that if she keeps her eyes on Jesus, she isn’t behind at all, she’s right where she belongs. Then, the ways Jesus has grown Perry in his journey:  By experiencing Jesus’ furious love, through being blind-sided by life, through his failures, through feeling forsaken by God, through the accusations of the enemy, through closed doors, through scars that won’t fully heal till heaven. 

Next, Chris, a Perry and Shawna Mornings listener shares how one of his deepest scars has been a huge part of God’s plan to save him. Then, Jesus demands complete surrender to him, because he knows something we don’t; that complete surrender is the path to pure joy. Finally, 27-year-old Sarah Rijfkogel, worship leader at Grand Rapids First went to be with Jesus in January. Her life says, “You don’t know how long you have; you just have to be faithful with the time you’re given.”
