In This Episode: Series 1, Episode 4 – God’s Will

In this episode, we hear stories from four guests: Lydia, Lena, Nikki and Ilona. Each of them shares their story as they ride the rollercoaster of faith, from stress at work to dog walking dilemmas. As Lydia tells us her story of the ups and downs of working life, we hear how God has been her light in the darkness, her way maker. Nikki and Ilona tell us about how God’s immediate answers to their prayers show His care and intervention, even in the most unexpected situations. We also hear how He has reassured Lena to stop making plans, reminding us to surrender to God’s will.
