Have you ever been pushed to your limit? What if you got there by helping others in a way you felt called by God to do? Was he far away and distant. Or, close as you learned he was taking care of you deeply?
Today’s guest is Lynn Byk who shares the experience of going to the limit of herself only to find that God led her to an unlikely relationship that changed her life. In fact, all the relationships that Lynn shares in this episode will move and inspire you from her days as a missionary in South Africa at the end of apartheid, to the way she led her husband to Christ, and finally, how God healed her after a painful estrangement with her neighborhood.
Lynn wrote a book about one of those relationships called Mr. B: Living with a 98-Year-Old Rocket Scientist which you can get at Amazon (affiliate link).Lynn wrote a book about one of those relationships called Mr. B: Living with a 98-Year-Old Rocket Scientist which you can get at Amazon (affiliate link).
Great quotes from our conversation:
I think as a Christian you have to open your hand up and say what do you want from me Lord? Do you want me to go through hardship? Do you want me to not be sure because you want me to trust in you? Do you want me to love this person even though everyone is looking at me saying ‘why are you their friend?’
The only way I can tell you is if you ask him to reveal himself to you. Ask him if the things you learned when you were a kid were real.
I’ve learned that I don’t have to have chapter and verse to explain my life…there’s so much of Scripture that’s just story and the story is the process of a human being living and how God interacted in their life.
He always puts me in situations that are just a little more than I can handle and then says “Ah! Now you need me. Now we can do this together.”
