Episode 35 - Annie F. Downs
Annie F. Downs
Many people probably associate Annie F. Downs with being happy. As a bestselling author, prolific speaker, and successful podcaster, she comes off as the fun-loving, outgoing Enneagram 7 that she is. But that’s not the whole story. In her new book, “Remember God,” Annie tells the story of a dark season in her life. She sits down with Davey to talk about that season and how to believe that God is kind when life seems disappointing.
I know God is loving; I know He is good; I believe He is big and powerful. But sometimes I wonder if He is really kind— really deeply always kind.
Christians love to talk about how God is in control, but that’s harder to grasp when things aren’t going like you thought they would, when your life looks quite different than you imagined.
In the back of my mind, God reminds me that He is the same trustworthy God—the One who always finishes the stories he starts. And this is my story—of wrestling with our God who gives a limp and a blessing. A God who is always kind even when my circumstances feel the opposite. God is who He says He is. He is kinder than you imagine. In a world where it is easy to forget who He is, we will not. We will remember God.
