When our minds become stuck in "what if" thinking, we see things from our finite viewpoint. We forget that God is infinite and that we can trust Him even when life is uncertain or doesn't make sense. In this episode, Gretchen Ronnevik interviews Michelle about the eighth chapter of her book, Immanuel....

When life looks uncertain, what do you cling to? Do your thoughts turn towards God or how you might fix what is wrong? But what if—you can’t fix it? What happens then?

What you believe to be true about God changes how you live your life and face each moment.

 I write more about this topic in my book, Promised Rest: Finding Peace in God’s Presence. It is a meditation on God's various names and characteristics to deepen your understanding of Him and your identity as His beloved Child.

To get ready for the release of my Bible Study, I’ve invited guests to come on the show, but instead of me interviewing them, they will take over my mic and interview me about a chapter of the book.

In this episode, Michelle's sisters take over the mic to interview her about the first chapter in her book, which is about the name Elohim.

In this episode, they talk about what happens when you can't fix what is wrong? What do you do? How does knowing God as Elohim help you?

Michelle share's a prayer for you and it is one that you can use when life feels uncertain and you need to be reminded of who God is and who you are as His child.

If you would like to read the first chapter of my book for free, you can sign up to receive it at CPH.ORG/Rest
