I was talking to Em’s teacher today while I was volunteering in her classroom. She was so sweet and enthusiastic about the upcoming radio show, wanted to know the content, the details, etc. I told her it is called ” “The Well”, you know, a show about digging deeper in life for perspective. We’ll talk about the hard stuff but not so we all end up like sobbing heaps on the floor but in order to encourage others that no matter what comes our way in this life, we can overcome it with God’s perspective.”
Mrs.: Have you always wanted a radio show?
Me: No, I never thought I’d be walking this road!
Mrs.: So, how did you happen upon it?
Me: Well, through writing about our journey with Noah on the blog my eyes have been opened to how each of us has a story to tell and that in sharing them, no matter how easy or difficult at times, we can find healing by doing so. And, I have found that even if we don’t understand God, are disappointed with Him at times, or don’t believe He’s good, He’s still part of the equation to be wrestled with.
Mrs.: That is so exciting and really important! About 30 years ago our neighbors lost their little 3 year old boy. They turned inward, so devastated, blamed God, stopped going to church, and you could see the anger eat them up. It was so sad! The dad finally died of a horrible cancer.
Me: That is why I think it’s important to talk about it, even if it’s uncomfortable! I know from our experience with Noah that God works differently than I would but I trust that He knows what He’s doing and that He loves us even though we suffer.
So, just this morning, another confirmation to my heart that when we try to walk this journey of life alone we will end up more empty than we started. I am excited to launch “The Well” next Thursday, and every Thursday, at 12pm MST on www.castlerockradio.com. Here’s our page link: http://www.castlerockradio.com/pages/page.asp?page_id=71928
Prayers welcome and needed:)
