R R Ep 39 Thumbnail

“Praise God no matter what.”

Today’s episode of Redeemed & Restored is entitled ‘Praising God for the Pandemic. An event so traumatic that it sounds counterintuitive to find something good from it. But bad things have an equal opportunity to reveal good! What if we approached everything in our lives from this perspective? Ask God to reveal His fruit in difficult times. The pandemic allowed God’s refinement, what did the pandemic reveal you you?


Topics Discussed

  • Obey Gods promptings!

  • Fruit that comes out of suffering!
  • Difficult times reveal opportunity!

Athena Dean Holtz Episode Quotes

  • “Shine in the darkness, allow God to refine you.”

Being the light! Difficult times. Finding hope. Seize opportunity!Praising God for the Pandemic
Athena Dean Holtz
Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
