Where did you see God?

Where did you see God?

By Paul Granger

What if God still speaks and works?

It can be hard to believe it, even harder to see it... or is it? What if God's not making it hard, but inviting us to look and to listen?

This podcast creates a space to practice looking and listening, through voices like yours. Through stories and organic conversations, we process how we can see God in the midst, and how we can learn to see Him more fully.

Sitting in Suffering: Accepting grace
Sitting in Suffering: Accepting grace
In episode 153, Karis Meier's story challenges us to consider if we are accepting grace.  When an unexpected medical issued to life-long, serious health issues, it could be hard for Karis to know what God was doing and how to navigate the mounting hardships.  In the midst, however, God was inviting her at accept his grace; even more, Karis -- who's name means "grace" -- was being invited to accept who God had created her to be.  Sometimes in the midst of our suffering it can be hard to see (or trust) the grace God is extending to us; how can we grow better at accepting it? How has the God brought you grace in the midst of hardship?

Sitting in Suffering: It shouldn't have been this way
Sitting in Suffering: It shouldn't have been this way
In episode 152, Darryl Rodgers helps us acknowledge a sentiment that can trip us up: "It shouldn't have been this way."  It could have been easy for him to say this, when after striving to be a good father he watched his son slip into a destructive addiction struggle that eventually cost him his life.  What makes this particularly hard is that sometimes we are right... it shouldn't be this way.  And yet it is.  How do we learn to trust God when things aren't as they should be, and how might we discover the "abundantly more" He is working on? How has the God brought you peace when things weren't as they should be?

Sitting in Suffering: Suicide and addiction
Sitting in Suffering: Suicide and addiction
In episode 151, Tim Lodgen's powerful story allows us to go deeper into a topic we've only lightly addressed: suicide.  Suicide is difficult to discuss; it's a topic that carries deep emotions, difficult theology, and hefty stigmas.  However, not discussing it leaves the many who wrestle with suicidal thoughts feeling more alone.  The truth is, they aren't alone; these emotions and mindsets can be found in scripture.  Tim and I don't give answers, but we do create space to discuss this hard topically honestly.  Tim also shares transparently his challenging journey with addiction, and how God was with him even when he couldn't believe it. How has the God brought you peace amidst hopelessness?

Sitting in Suffering: The Spirit
Sitting in Suffering: The Spirit
In episode 150, Steven Snook presses us to not miss out on the most powerful gift in the midst of suffering: the Spirit.  There is no shortage of valuable advice and resources for navigating suffering that aren't Christian-based; so if you can navigate suffering without God, what does God bring to the table?  Steven would tell you it's the power of the Holy Spirit, and we are missing out on full life and peace by not honestly contending with the reality of the Spirit.  Maybe that scares you, maybe it confuses you; and maybe the Spirit is nearer than you know How has the Spirit helped you in hardship?

Sitting in Suffering: Others are watching
Sitting in Suffering: Others are watching
In episode 149, EksAyn Anderson shares a story that reveals what can seem a daunting reality; in the midst of our suffering, others are watching.  EksAyn had interactions with his mom as a kid that impact him to this day, and she never knew the depth of impact.  When we are in hardship, we can already feel like we have no capacity, and the thought of having to navigate well for the sake of others can seem impossible.  What if God is actually inviting us into an opportunity to plant seeds as ambassadors of Christ, even if we aren't feeling it? How has God's planted seeds through you?

Sitting in Suffering: The Word
Sitting in Suffering: The Word
In episode 148, Johnathan Drayton presses us to consider how we are understanding and engaging the Word in the midst of our suffering.  Too often, we will utilize the Word for platitudes or fixes, but what if God actually intends abundantly more than we could ask or imagine?  If you enjoy this conversation, check out the conversation Johnathan and I had on his podcast, "The Truth of the Matter Is."

Sitting in Suffering: Hope
Sitting in Suffering: Hope
In episode 147, Laura Diehl invites us to press into the concept of "hope".  If hope is "a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen", that means that anytime we have an expectation or desire, we are hoping for something; in other words, rather than wondering if we have hope, perhaps we should ask "what am I hoping for?"  After all, what we hope for will determine how we navigate our seasons of suffering, a
