When we are anxious or when life feels uncertain, many of us strive for control, making ourselves, rather than Christ, Lord of our lives. The problem is, we don’t have perfect wisdom or supreme power. But God does. When we choose to trust our Savior, our Adonai, to be our Lord by following His lead, we’ll experience increased peace and joy, and often, decreased messes.

Host Jennifer Slattery and her husband discovered just how true this was when they found themselves in a seemingly impossible situation where obedience felt hard and risky.
