Awesome Interview With Paul Young!

I just listened to this recent interview with Paul Young by Drew Marshall and I whole heartedly recommend taking the time to listen.

Paul tells the story of a chance meeting with his abuser that led to forgiveness and closure for both of them.... a real tear jerker. He also sheds light on some of the concepts that he brings up in The Shack. He talks about how God has no expectations of us because he already knows everything about us so he can't be disappointed in us. Disappointment comes from not getting what was expected and expectations come from not knowing.

Makes sense to me! So often we feel that God is disappointed in us....that he expects more.

I loved it. And you will too.

Thanks so much for sharing this link. I don't have time to listen right now, but I will come back for a listen :)

Realizing that God is pleased with me, just the way I am, has been a life changing revelation!

Our church read this book a few years ago and we loved it. I wish they would make a movie about it.

Thank you for the comments on my blog. Nice to meet you.
