God’s Name: Yaweh
April 13, 2024
00:26:00

When you’re trying to have a baby, it’s easy to let your heart get carried away daydreaming of the “one days” and thinking of future baby names. But infertility is cruel and living in a fallen, broken world constantly reminds us that nothing— not even having children is for certain.

But one thing in this world is constant. You can take it to the bank. God is faithful, loving, merciful and just and His character and nature will not change. In this episode, Anne and Kendra start a new series exploring the Hebrew names of God and the powerful eternal truth wrapped up in each name/title. Truths that can carry you through any disappointment or season of life.
