Stasi is delighted to have Lisa Harper—speaker, author, scholar, and passionate follower of Jesus—on today’s podcast. With humor and honesty, Lisa shares her journey with Christ and the gracious unfolding of learning to be delighted in by God. God is a “with” God; he loves us so much that he chooses to be close to us no matter where we find ourselves and invites us to lean into him with confidence that we will be held and adored by the King of kings. We are divinely wired to be in intimate relationship with the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. The enemy has tried to separate us from that union from the beginning, but God’s story is all about bringing us back to his heart through the redemption that has already been woven in.
Psalm 34:4-5 (NIV) — I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
Song of Song 4:9 (NIV) — You have captured my heart, my treasure, my bride. You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes, with a single jewel of your necklace.
Hosea 2:9 (NIV) — “But now I will take back the ripened grain and new wine I generously provided each harvest season. I will take away the wool and linen clothing I gave her to cover her nakedness.

Aiden Wilson Tozer Quote: “For millions of Christians, nevertheless, God is no more real than He is to the non-Christian. They go through life trying to love an ideal and be loyal to a mere principle.”
Yada` (יָדַע ; yâda) Hebrew: To be made known, be or become known, be revealed — to make oneself known — to be perceived — to know (properly, to ascertain by seeing)
