Eps. 115 – Keeping Hope Alive When You Love a Prodigal

Listen to Episode 115 here.

When we walk through heartbreaking seasons, our heart-hurts can begin to overflow into all other areas of our lives.

Grief over our prodigal is real and can rob us of the life of abundance the Lord longs for us to live. That is I why invited Sarah Geringer to The Even While Podcast for this much needed conversation.

Sarah is no stranger to walking through a hard and long season of loving and praying for a prodigal. Through her lived out experiences she has some wisdom to pass on to us which will bring Hope and life as we love our own prodigal.

In this episode with Melinda and Sarah, you will :

  • discover why a support team is important
  • learn how to use God’s Word to speak Truth in your situation
  • hear ways to not allow grief to rob you of your life

Pour yourself a cup of coffee, tea, or your favorite beverage and listen in on ways to keep hope alive in this season.

Read Psalm 18
Write out all the names of God and characteristic traits of God that you see.
Keep that nearby for times of prayer and declaration and to remind yourself when the enemy seeks to rob you of your confidence and faith in God.

Thanks for listening, friends!
