October 7, 2012 – Can God’s plan include failure?
// October 7th, 2012 // Give God Permission
In today’s show Janis and Fr. Peter discuss the topic of “Can God’s Plan Include Failure?” with a particular focus on a very specific failure—the terrible scourge of pornography that is devastating marriages and families. Nancy, our guest, tells us of the awful suffering in her own family from her father’s addiction to pornography, and how that contributed to the sexual abuse of his own daughter. Nancy shares the glorious story of how the Lord healed her and empowered her to forgive her father, and how doing so set her free and enabled her to snatch victory out of the jaws of failure through the power of the Cross. Our culture tells us in many different ways that pornography is OK. That it’s normal and natural to get wrapped up in it. But Nancy’s experience tells quite a different story. Janis and Fr. Peter draw from the wisdom of the Church as they discuss this topic and offer help to those who are struggling with an addiction to pornography and other immoral sexual activities. It really is possible to be set free! Failure is not the final word! Like Nancy, we are all called to snatch victory from the jaws of failure. No matter what our failures may have been, God still has a plan, and he’ll work it out if only we turn to him, open our hearts to the healing power of the Holy Spirit, and ask for Mary’s intercession! Join us next week for part two of “Can God’s Plan Include Failure?”
