Have you ever walked through something so dark and difficult that it made you wonder where God was and why He didn’t intervene? Our guest today, Nicole Jacobsmeyer, has! From trauma in her teen years to a cancer diagnosis later in life, Nicole had repeatedly wrestled with the goodness of God in the midst of her suffering. In this episode, Nicole vulnerably shares her story and how God pulled her out of doubt when she was at her lowest. Whether or not you’ve experienced the same kinds of suffering as Nicole, you’ll relate to the honest questions she has wrestled with about her faith.
We hope this episode will remind you that God is with you and will lead you through every high and low that you experience. And we hope it will encourage you that it is okay to ask hard questions about faith and God. There are firm answers in Scripture for the hard questions we all have about faith.
