62: Tricia Lott Williford | Find Joy in the Waiting
What are you waiting for?
Everyone takes their turn in the waiting room. But when we misunderstand what waiting is about, we can get confused about what God is up to. As it turns out, waiting is actually one of God’s favorite tools. There are specific things God can do in our hearts and in our lives only in the waiting.
On today’s episode we had the incredible honor of chatting with our new friend and NY Times Best Selling author, Tricia Lott Williford. As you’ll soon discover, Tricia is an incredible storyteller. I just love listening to her and I know you will too!
Tricia’s journey of overcoming is one of the most touching stories you will ever hear! Years ago, she suddenly found herself to be a thirty-one-year-old widow with two preschoolers to raise on her own, when her husband died unexpectedly and tragically at Christmastime. Tricia opens up about her journey through grief and heartbreak to finding new strength and joy on the other side.
We also chat with Tricia about her latest project, Just You Wait. Listen in as Tricia shares the joy hidden in the discipline of waiting, the practices of believing God is for you and working on your behalf, even when the work of His hand is hard to find. We hope this conversation will encourage you in the waiting, and remind you that God is at work behind the scenes in invisible ways you just can’t see.
