    Straining at the Oars | Part II
    When we get to the end of ourselves, we tend to finally cry out to God after much turmoil and self-effort.
    Jesus appears on the scene and with no effort at all, shows himself strong in our weakness.
    He knows what has been, what is and what will be.
    Out of our life storms, He takes our "little," and makes much. 
     
    In this episode, Pastor Jon continues with Part II of the series "Straining at the Oars"
    based on Mark 6: 45-52.

    Straining at the Oars | Part I
     The hard times of our lives do not surprise God at all, but more often than not, it certainly catches us off guard. These storms are very real and often devastating to us, but if we can embrace it, Jesus uses them to stretch us and grow our trust in Him.
     
    In order for us to grow, He may not instantly take away the pain, but rather says "trust me" through the process. In this podcast episode, Pastor Jon addresses this topic through Mark 6:45-52.
