UGP 171 - Finding Peace and a Personal God During the Covid Crisis

  • Posted on: 1 January 2022

TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

Joel and Lynn share scriptures and a biblical perspective on how to find peace in Jesus and comfort in a God who is both personal and powerful during troubled times like our current Covid pandemic. Lynn contrasts her life now, 14 years after leaving the Mormon religion, with the fear and despair that were so much a part of her life back then. While this is a replay of episode 081 that aired at the beginning of the pandemic, the hope and encouragement we can find in Jesus is just as relevant, and needed today as it was then. Listen in and experience a grace that heals.

SCRIPTURAL REFERENCES

  • In peace I will lay down and sleep (Psalm 4:8)
  • Answer me when I call (Psalm 4:1)

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

Chaos has a way of uncovering our true values. What do we most want out of life?

If our values aren’t eternal ones, then it’s time to do a values trade-in. ~Joel

Are we desperate for a fresh sense of God’s presence and His word in this crisis or desperate to return to normal?

The Bible is your connection to hearing from God. You get to know who God is, what He has said and what you can expect for your future. ~ Lynn

If your life is filled with busyness and distractions, you are not used to facing introspection when a crisis comes along.

There is a lot of peace when we are confident and know the anchor which holds our life together. It cannot be in an organization it’s only in a relationship with Jesus. ~Joel
