Season 5: Episode 3 | Resistance

Our lives are not in danger like Elijahs, but we all have to face resistance. If you feel the push pull, then this is likely a signal God is at work.  How do we push through our fear? What if we are afraid God will not show up? It is good to know our own baggage. The best part is that God will meet you even if you have a lot of resistance. Ruth shares her experience with people who seem most resistant to silence and solitude. We end again with a practice.
