Kathryn's good friend Deirdre comes on to share her story! Deirdre works for a Christian ministry organization on a college campus and lives with her family of 3 (plus a dog!) in Michigan. We talk about enjoying God’s presence through the good and the bad, wrestling with spiritual questions, working through depression, holding fast to truth, and how we can sometimes find ourselves in a place where we have everything we had ever hoped for...but really what we need most is Jesus... and only Jesus.

“My faith rests not upon what I am, or shall be, or feel, or know, but in what Christ is, in what He has done, and in what He is now doing for me.” ― Charles H. Spurgeon.

“Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again, and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool. For by one sacrifice, he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. Performance – all the sacrifices in the world still can’t solve the problem of sin – only Jesus’s sacrifice is enough.” - Hebrews 10:11-14

“Simon Peter answered him, 'Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.'” - John 6:68

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” – Ephesians 2:8-9

A Prayer for Broken Hearts - Your Daily Prayer - November 28
