God sees your details. What do we mean by this? We mean that not only does he see what makes you uniquely you, but he communicates with you in the way that is best for you. For Sarah, he first found her with music. Her journey led her to a simple, risky prayer - "Lord, I'm willing. I'm available." That's how everything changed. Show Notes: https://bit.ly/3NwSQjH

Mark's journey is one of learning that God doesn't reject us when we feel like we fail, he doesn't reject us when we make a poor decision. Instead God shows up at our lowest point and says, "You don't have to earn my love." When you can embrace that God loves you for you and that you don't have to perform a certain way, everything changes. Show Notes: https://onpurposely.com/brought-back-to-life-learning...
