Dr. Michelle Bengtson joins David Robison to explore the challenging journey of maintaining faith during periods of waiting for healing.

Quotables from the Episode:

  • “In our pain, we have a choice. We can either retreat from God and blame Him, or we can lean in and continue to enact our faith, waiting for His healing in His perfect time and way.” [00:06:00]
  • “God never withholds anything good from His children. If my physical healing today was in my best interest, I know He would do it.”
  • “Walking by faith sometimes comes by crawling by faith.”
  • “Getting out of bed or just breathing, sometimes, that is victory.”
  • “God can handle our honesty. It’s our flesh speaking, but it’s honest and it’s real.”
  • “The pain of childbirth is so great… But when you get the joy that comes out of it, it makes it all worthwhile.”
