The New Year is here, and the old is better left squarely in the rear-view mirror. Very few of us thought the pandemic shutdown would last this long; nor did we imagine the subsequent political and social unrest that brought levels of angst and acrimony rarely seen outside of times of war. But in reality, the pandemic’s Pandora’s Box, just exposed what was already present; a deep-seeded quarrel we have not just with our fellow human beings, but ultimately, with our Maker, God. And being aware of that breach will not only help us survive but thrive in any cultural climate. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, ┬áspells out how to live faithful and victorious lives. He talks about his book, “From Survive to Thrive,” and how the impetus to write it came as he watched his eldest daughter battle the coronavirus in a hospital ICU. He says, “Have you ever found yourself in a place where you say, Lord, I trust you, I believe in you. I know you’re real. I can’t explain everything, but I have truly no idea what to do next. And I reached that point, yeah, I reached a point, and a lot of people reached that point too.” Listen to the podcast and find out what happened, and how thriving can be your testimony of God’s sovereignty.
