In this video, Betty, our inspiration for The Hidden Life Awakened, offers the hope and encouragement that we can persevere beyond our pain and endless weight of fear.
I would like to encourage you by the fact, and the truth, that if you do your part, God will do His part—and I can assure you from my own experience that this is so. I want you to know that I know where you’ve been. I know the pain. I know the suffering involved, but I also know the peace and the joy. So I just so want you to persevere and to find this place of rest and free yourself up from this endless weight of depression and this fear that nags at you all the time, and this anxiety that won’t let you sleep. Come into a place of peace and resting in God. And so I’d just like to thank you, and perhaps I as one in fleshed, can be your hope and encouragement on the journey. You need to recall again and again that it’s all to do with preparation—nothing’s ever wasted. Everything is preparation, everything is working our process, and everything has to do with the intensity of our desire to persevere: to return.
