By Tiffany Rutkowski

That’s quite a catchy title. How many times have we felt hopeless in some way, shape, or form? Our latest episode of Tiffany Talk is a two-part series in which I sat down with Tom Gilbert of Ground Zero Ministries.

I’ve talked a lot about “religion” on my podcast, and this two-part series is a dissertation of sorts. While you may not be in the exact position of Tom, on some level, we can all relate. The beauty and triumph of this particular story are the details.

Easter is the follow-up holiday to Christmas, where, around 33 years later, our savior Jesus died for us. How does and can that make sense to us in this world? A portion of that joyful hope may be discovered through listening to this podcast, but don’t forget we (yes, you and I) have to answer a single question in order to start our story and experience that same joy.

One of my favorite songs is written by Joel Houston, Matt Crocker, and Benjamin Hastings, and it goes something like this;

“Who am I
To think Your glory needs my praises
But if this borrowed breath is Yours Lord
Take it all
You are faithful and You are gracious
And I’m just grateful
To think You don’t need a single thing
And still You want my heart”

I was found
Before I was lost
I was Yours
Before I was not
You wear the scars
For all my mistakes
And that part just wrecks me”

with the most poignant of words finishing…
“Your love’s too good to leave me here.” *
