Holding Hope for the Unbelieving w/June Chapman

Coffee and Bible Time | 5/2/2024

How do you hold onto hope when those you love don’t share your faith? June Chapman, author of “Peace in the Waiting: When You Love People Who Don’t Love God,” joins us to unravel this complex and emotional topic. Drawing from her own experiences during the isolation of the pandemic, June shares her insights on connecting with non-believing friends and the transformative journey that led her to pen her soul-stirring book. As she walks us through her initial hesitation and divine inspiration to write, her story emerges as a beacon for anyone grappling with the ache of unanswered prayers for the salvation of loved ones.

In a world where control is often a coveted illusion, our conversation leans into the art of surrender. We dissect the spiritual struggles that arise when faced with the reality that we cannot will our loved ones into faith. June sheds light on the power of lament, taking a page from the Psalms to illustrate expressing sorrow while holding onto trust in God’s unfailing love. With every word, we peel back the layers of doubt to reveal the resilience of a faith that withstands the silence, the waiting, and the uncertainty that can sometimes cloud our spiritual paths.

Wrapping up, this heartfelt episode offers more than just companionship in the wait—it extends practical lifelines for threading faith through the tapestry of everyday life. June and I talk about the profound impact of prayer and intercession, how worship can become an act of immediate faith, and the pitfalls of placing the outcome above the Almighty. The takeaways are rich and all designed to deepen your spiritual practice and sustain you through the seasons of waiting for those heart-deep interventions in the lives of the people we cherish.
