Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Sep 10, 2020

Episode Summary: Have you ever experienced financial loss? Or wondered how you might handle it if you did? What if I told you that there could actually be hidden blessings from a financial catastrophe? My guest today, Patricia Durgin, shares how she maintained hope in the face of financial catastrophe, and how you can too.

Quotables from the episode:

  • “We lost everything except our family, our home, and our Savior.”
  • No matter what we can lose in life, we can’t lose God.
  • God sends His most trusted soldiers into the deepest darkness so we can be reminded that no matter what happens, He is with us.
  • I don’t believe in hopelessness. Because of Him, #HopePrevails.
  • We see God better in the dark.
  • Don’t leave God’s side. He is the only hope we’ve got and the only hope we need.

Scripture References:

  • Psalm 6:3-4 “My soul is in deep anguish. How long, Lord? How long? Turn, Lord, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.”
  • 2 Corinthians 1:9 “But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God.”

Patricia Durgin began studying online marketing in 1995, the year Amazon sold its first book. Since then, she’s invested thousands of dollars to learn from leaders in the field, and countless hours adapting those principles for Christian writers and speakers. Online marketing is a confusing tangle of technology and messaging. Patricia helps Christian communicators cut a straight path, so they can escape the maze and fulfill their true calling, which is to reach more people for Christ.
