She is the host of The Bearing Life Podcast and the author of two books with a third releasing in early 2023. Her heart is to use her voice and experience to equip others to define steps and practical ways to move through and beyond the fallout of unplanned events.    Take a few minutes to meditate on Matthew 26 and then tune into this interview to hear where God led Julie.   Some highlights from our conversation: Julie’s ministry to equip people with practical compassion How she imagined the evening in the garden to be calm and peaceful – but also with an air of foreboding. Why it comforted Julie to notice that Jesus took his inner circle into the garden and let them know what he needed. How the Lord convicted Julie about keeping watch and what that means for her life right now.   You can find Julie at: On Instagram @julieshannonofficial On FaceBook @drjulieshannon     The exact verses read in this podcast are printed here for your use. Matthew 26:36-46, NIV   36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” 39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” 40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. 41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 42 He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. 45 Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!”
