One of God’s biggest promises is that He will never leave us. God is with us in our times of plenty, and He is with us in our time of need. No matter what you may be going through, no matter what storm you are facing, God is with you. No storm, circumstance or need can overcome God’s love for you, or separate you from His awesome power.

Join us for the inaugural episode of our second season and listen as Todd Uebele shares with you real, practical steps that you can take to turn over your anger, your anxiety, your fear, to God. Todd shares how God helped him recover from rock bottom and shows you how God can help YOU recover from rock bottom as well.

Two of those events happened when he was stationed in Afghanistan, and the other event happened as recently as a few weeks ago in Qatar. Listen to how in every one of these events, God extended his magnificent hand to guard Todd and those who were with him.

What is like to free yourself from the chains of anxiety, hopelessness, depressive forces, and remorse? How do you free yourself from the chains that hold you down?

In “Rising from the Dust,” special guest Pastor Tolani Abike Adewole describes how, through multiple miscarriages and inability to retain pregnancies, she was scorned by family members due to her cultural upbringing. She was hurt and labeled by others. Tolani shares how she found in the Word of God the antidote to rise from the entanglements and systems we see ourselves in. She unpacks Isaiah 52:2: “Shake off your dust…Free yourself from the chains on your neck…”

After over 10 years of fighting lies of hopelessness by standing in God’s Word, Tolani conceived and is now blessed with 4 children. She rose from the dust of being called a barren woman and being scorned by her culture. She rose from the dust and broke the chains of despair by standing strong in a space where knowing who God is and who you are in God are the key to remove those chains. “It’s from that position when you begin to rise”—Tolani reveals.

Listen now to this encouraging and uplifting episode. Discover those traits of who God is that will bring you comfort; and see how you are favored, precious, and unconditionally loved. Remove the chains of despair and rise up.

S1, Ep 11: Set Me Free

  

  

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”—Lewis B. Smedes

How do you go about forgiving someone who has wronged you? What about forgiving someone who has wronged those you love?

Countless sermons have been preached on the importance of forgiveness and our relationship with God. Countless books and commentaries have been written about how forgiveness brings healing to one’s soul. But how do you actually rid yourself of the anger that weighs your heart down?

In this episode “Set me Free,” Todd Uebele bluntly describes a season in his life where he was burdened with unforgiveness and anger toward someone who wronged him and his family while he was stationed in Afghanistan. An insatiable thirst for revenge was consuming him. Forgiveness was so irrational at the time, and unattainable.

Listen to the podcast to discover how, with God’s help, Todd was able to overcome his thirst for revenge and step into the restorative experience of forgiveness.

How can you overcome worry and fear? How can you be filled with a peace beyond your understanding?

Through a battle with cancer, Yilda Rivera found the answer to the questions above in this verse:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”—Philipians 4:6-7

In this episode we have a very special guest, Yilda Rivera. Yilda is a cancer survivor, a wife, mother, engineer and author of the top selling book: Courage Under Fire. In her book and in this episode, Yilda opens up about her battle with breast cancer. The intensely personal story leads us from the cancer diagnosis, through the sometimes painful process of treatment and through to a surprisingly successful outcome. This outcome doesn’t have to do with overcoming cancer, but about overcoming fear and worry. Join us as she describes how God was her rock, helping her overcome fear and worry.
