209. Draw Near — Hadassah Treu

Listen now:

Has God ever answered, “No” to one of your prayer requests? Did you have a hard time accepting when God’s answer was “No.” I don’t know about you, but I think that is a really hard one when we pray fervently, and God does not answer with the way we want him to. I remember that with my friend, we were praying for a miracle for her to be healed, but sadly she wasn’t. It was really hard to accept that “No”.

I am excited to have Hadassah Treu on the podcast this week because she is going to share her story of a time when she had to accept when God answered, “No.” I think it is a very powerful episode. Her book is called *Draw Near: How Painful Experiences Become the Birthplace of Blessings. You do not want to miss the truth Hadassah shares; there is so much goodness!

Also, I am so excited for someone to win a copy of Hadassah’s new book: *Draw Near. All the details of the book giveaway are on my website at jodisnowdon.com or you can click this direct link: https://kingsumo.com/g/lz5vie/draw-near-book-giveaway
