From Longing to Confidence w/ Cody Andras

Have you ever felt a deep-seated yearning for divine companionship, a sense that something greater is perpetually by your side? This episode, graced by the insightful Cody Andras, author of “Jesus by Her Side,” invites you into a heartfelt exploration of this spiritual hunger, as we traverse the remarkable encounters of women with Jesus in the Gospels. Through my own journey of vocational twists and faith-stirred decisions, I uncover the beauty of God’s personalized touch in our lives, mirroring the individual moments of faith portrayed in Scripture. Cody’s transition from business to bibliology exemplifies the profound importance of laying all our paths before God, affirming His care for each unique stride we take.

Tuning in, you’ll witness the poignant narrative of Mary Magdalene and her transformative encounter with the resurrected Christ—a story that encourages us to advance in faith, leaving behind the comfort of past spiritual peaks. We discuss the empowering story of Mary and Elizabeth, whose bond exemplifies the support we can find within our own communities amid life’s singular trials. These stories serve as an anchor, reaffirming the unwavering truth of God’s constancy, even when His presence feels distant or intangible.

Embarking on the final moments of our discussion, I invite you to explore the myriad of avenues through which we can connect with Jesus—be it through the whispers of nature, the harmony of music, or the sacred texts that chronicle humanity’s intersection with God. We look at the earnestness of biblical women, like the bleeding woman’s raw pursuit of healing and Mary and Martha’s lessons of service and devotion, imploring you to bring the same sincerity to your own spiritual quest. Whether through Scripture reflection or prayerful solitude, Cody and I share our most cherished practices and resources, ultimately guiding you to a more profound closeness with Jesus that reaches beyond the pages of the Bible.
