Episode 031: Even If: Healing After Tragedy
When bad things happen it's easy to rely on coping mechanisms and go into survival mode just to make it through. However, most times the coping mechanisms and survival mode mentality can easily become part of how we deal with life in general. We stay in survival mode to a certain extent. So when do you heal from those adverse events in your life??

Golden nuggets from this episode:
"And because of that, I need to trust God, and to trust that He's got plans for me that I may not know of right now. And there's ways that He needs to prepare me that I don't understand right now, because I don't see the place where He's taking me yet. Because He needs me right where I am, to prepare me for that."
"when you submit to God, then you're saying, God, Invest in me."
