New York Times bestselling author, Lisa Bevere, joins The Open Door Sisterhood Podcast in a one of a kind interview. We talk about her newest book Adamant: Finding Truth in a Universe of Opinions. Lisa explains how she establishes fences (not walls) in her own life to ensure she has clarity of mind and purpose in pursuing God in a time in history where “anything goes” messages question the idea of absolute truth. Lisa explains why scripture is her foundation for clarifying confusion and finding comfort in trial.
A woman on the go, (like from continent to continent), Lisa must steady herself with good habits. We hear how she journals with Scripture, the Bible translations she prefers, the commentaries she goes to first, and her espresso habit. If you are a woman looking for inspiration to know God’s word better and with more purpose, this episode is for you. Lisa inspires us to search for truth in God’s own words rather than from memes and tweets.
God puts a longing for eternity in each of our hearts. We can look for answers and hope in news feeds or people, but Lisa claims we will always be disappointed. Our adamant, unchanging God is the only place we can go and find our longings fulfilled. Why not cut through the noise of our times, and search for hope in the one who does not change?
