For me (Norman Hubbard), it’s an emotional start to a new season of the podcast. Today is the 7th anniversary of Katie’s passing, and it falls very close to the time of year when she was diagnosed with recurrent breast cancer ten years ago. Opening up her journals and this chapter of our life together is still very painful for me. (I decided not to edit my tears out of the recorded audio.) More important than my tears, however, are her words as she reflects on God’s Word. There is no distant shore of distress or depth of pain where a child of God will be abandoned: “If I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there … if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there your hand will lead me and your right hand will lay hold of me” (Psa 139:8-10).
