WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour #345 is Lysa TerKeurst. Lysa is someone who needs no introduction, but in the off chance that you are new to this space, let me tell you about my dear friend! Lysa TerKeurst is a best-selling author, speaker and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries. Her books include Uninvited, It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way, and most recently Forgiving What You Can’t Forget. Lysa has continued to be a leader for Christ-following women, and I’m consistently blown away by her words and faithfulness to God’s mission. 

Lysa is a Happy Hour veteran and I’m so thankful she is back on the podcast. In today’s episode, Lysa talks about leaving room for God to move, what God revealed to her about forgiveness, and partnering with Harper Collins publishing to give people a place to share their stories! Lysa also goes into depth about the message of forgiveness and hurt, and why it was such a difficult message to write because it’s such a difficult message to live. But I love so much when she says, “We don’t conjure up forgiveness from inside of us. We simply throw our arms up, and we receive forgiveness from God.” Forgiveness is one of the most difficult and sanctifying processes we can ever go through, and it is not a natural response for our human hearts. Lysa reminds us that forgiveness is not something we need to conjure up ourselves, but rather something that we receive from The Lord, giving Him full authority to live and flow in us. I am so very grateful for Lysa’s vulnerability and words of encouragement in the midst of truly difficult seasons.
