It’s pretty obvious that God does things on His timeline, not ours. But how do we hang on when our story seems punctuated by hardship, deserts and disappointment?

He gives both biblical and modern examples to illustrate his convictions, so if you’re wandering or stuck right now, turn up this interview.
