We all experience times when we feel inadequate and insufficient. In those moments, we can withdraw in self-protection, we can advance forward in self-reliance, or we can yield to and trust in our all-sufficient God. In this episode, Ava Pennington shares a time when God placed her in a position that triggered her insecurities but also that deepened her faith.
