03 – When God’s Pruning Hurts
Writer, producer, and voice actor Bill Myers, has worked in what he affectionately calls “Hollyweird” for years. He’s joining us in this podcast to share his experiences with God’s pruning shears—and the beauty that comes from letting the Master refine and shape us.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:1 (NIV)
Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.
Philippians 4:4 (NIV)
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
John 15:1-2 (NIV)
I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
