How do you say yes to God in the face of obstacles, delays, and disappointments? In this episode, Lisa Harper shares her adoption journey and how to follow your good God wherever He leads.  

SHOW NOTES

Discussion Questions: 

  1. Lisa thought she was too old to adopt. Have you ever felt disqualified for something God called you to do?
  2. Have you ever struggled to believe that God could redeem something in your life or redeem what seemed like ‘wasted years’?
  3. How has obedience to God served as a North Star for you? 
  4. Eugene Peterson says, “Obedience is like a long walk in the same direction.” Lisa says, “For me, obedience has been like one long walk—with stumbles along the way—in the same direction.” How can you relate to Lisa’s definition of obedience? 
  5. Lisa shared how she had to shift her view of God from an angry librarian to a Father that loved her. How have you come to believe in God’s goodness? 
  6. What verse has been a lamp for your feet and a light to your path?
