Hope and Healing in Times of Trial

Abiding Together

Today on the Abiding Together Podcast, Sister Miriam, Michelle and Heather talk about living with the reality of depression, anxiety and hardships in life. We have some vulnerable conversation about our personal journeys and share the things we have learned along the way that have anchored our hearts in the hope of Jesus and allowed for healing and growth.

“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul “therefore I will hope in him.” – Lamentations 3: 21-24

Quote to Ponder:

“Depression doesn’t define who I am. It’s a part of my story, as a lot of broken parts are, but Jesus is the one who gives me my identity and tells me who I am and that’s where we need to look to him and hear his voice in all the parts of our story” Heather Khym

Scripture for Lectio Divina –
Lamentations 3:21-24

“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul “therefore I will hope in him.”
