Kathie Lee Gifford - Growing in Dark Times
Kathie Lee Gifford is a shining example of love and grace, but her growth didn't come easily. She has known hard times. She shares how she brings everything to God with honesty, telling Him when she's angry or crushed, when she doesn't feel close to Him, or even feels betrayed by Him, "Because He can take that kind of honesty. He's made for it.", she says. 

One of her favorite stories of hardship is the story of Hagar, a single mom who ends up alone in the desert, heartbroken, and feeling invisible. God meets he her there and she calls Him "El Roi, the God Who Sees Me". Kathie Lee collaborated with Nicole C. Mullens to write a song called, "The God Who Sees." Kathie Lee reiterates that the same Gd who saw Hagar sees us five thousand years later too. That's the amazing beauty of the scriptures and the song celebrates the story of Hagar, Ruth, David, and Mary Magdalene. God met each one where they were with love and provision.  

Kathie Lee shares that after encountering God, Mary Magdalene and the other women were filled with courage, enough to want to risk the consequences of going to anoint the body of Jesus after his death. These female believers were filled with "hutzpah" which means "bold courage". Women in that time were looked down on in their culture. They were seen as less than but when God saw them, they became emboldened and strong in spite of their low societal status. This position is similar to single parents who often feel less than and overlooked too. Yet, when God enters our lives and demonstrates His love for us, we, too, can become full of courage. 

Kathie Lee shares that people don't like to talk about it, but the Bible never shies away from sin. For complete show notes click here .
