In this episode, Patty Asaad joins the podcast to answer the question, “What do you do when life knocks you over?” Patty quotes that as Christians in times of fear, “We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.” She shares her recent journey of battling fears she never thought she’d face and how that suffering has led her to new levels of reliance on God. 

About the Speaker:
Patty Asaad serves as Congregational Women’s Ministry Leader for the Dallas/Fort Worth Church. She has served in the full-time ministry for more than 30 years. Patty was baptized in Columbia, Missouri in 1980 while she was earning her degree in journalism from the University of Missouri. Patty moved to Texas in 1996 along with her husband, Todd, and two sons.  Before coming to Texas, Todd and Patty served in several churches in the Midwest. They were married in 1988 and have two sons and a daughter-in-law in Austin, TX.

Episode Notes:

What do you do when life knocks you over and you’re dealing with issues you never thought in a million years you’d be dealing with?

What can we learn in our times of suffering? 

  1. Faith lessons
  2. Fight to trust God –don’t let yourself go down the “What If…?” Road. Times of fear are very overwhelming: Remember that God will give you what you need in the moment.

“We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.”

3. We can learn to be more compassionate and love unconditionally

Hosea 11:3-4

“It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by the arms; but they did not realize it was I who healed them.  I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love; I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down to feed them.”

We don’t need to be glad or happy about the suffering in our lives, but we can rejoice in the faith lessons learned and find joy in the things that we might not have ever realized without the trials.
