Challenges Won't Stop Me

Are you in a meanwhile?

My guest, Carol McLeod, describes a meanwhile as "the test of faith between a crisis and God's visible intervention."

What do you do or say during the time between when a crisis intersects your life and when you see God's visible intervention?

My guest is Carol McLeod. She's an overcomer, an award-winning author of sixteen books, host of the Significant Women podcast, international speaker, Craig's wife, and Marmie to her ten grandchildren.

Carol and I discuss several snippets of her Bible study about the life of Joseph titled "Meanwhile: Meeting God in the Wait."

I gained so much insight and understanding about those months or years in the meanwhiles - in the waiting - when I worked through Carol's powerful Bible study.

Notable quotes from this episode with Carol McLeod:

  • "Just as God has a plan for your life, so does the enemy. His ugly plan is that you, as a believer in Christ, will live out your earthly days in the dit of despair, in the pit of hopelessness, and the pit of unending depression. There is no potential for growth or nourishment there. The devil is unable to take eternal life from you, so he endeavors to take abundant life from you."
  • "Joseph spoke generously because his life had been refined by human pain and he saw the unprecedented and miraculous plan of God unfold."

Bible verses:

  • 2 Corinthians 5:7 "We live by faith, not by sight."
  • Psalm 138:8 "God will accomplish what concerns me."
  • John 16:22 "... no one can take away your joy ..."
  • Genesis 50:20 "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many nations."
  • Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Carol's Bible study, Meanwhile: Meeting God in the Wait, is available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.
