Depth Podcast Episode 129: Trusting God in ALL the Things — Ruth Schwenk

Listen now:

Are you overwhelmed? Is there something going on in your life that just seems too big right now? I can totally relate.

So, I am so excited to introduce you to the devotional: *Trusting God in All the Things: 90 Devotions for Finding Peace In Your Every Day. This is written by both Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk, and I am so excited to talk with Ruth on the podcast this week. We are going to dive deeper into what does it look like to trust God, not only in the good times, but also the storms of life.

We are also going to talk about being overwhelmed. Those questions that I ask you at the beginning are actually the first two questions in the first devotional. So we are going to look at the life of Jesus and what he did when he was overwhelmed in the Garden of Gethsemane as well as David and how he felt alone in one of the Psalms and how we can lose perspective in the middle of trials. There is so much hope and encouragement on this episode today and I cannot wait for you to hear the truths from Ruth.

Also, I am so excited for someone to win a copy of Ruth’s book: *Trusting God in All the Things. All the details of the book giveaway are on my website at or you can click this direct link:
