Steve and Jamie Wiechman, co-founders of Breathe Life Ministries, join author Justin Rossow to talk about chapter 8, The Dignity of the Cross in the When from Death I’m Free hymn journal for Holy Week.

These three friends discuss the Scripture reading and devotion and unpack some of the implications of how Jesus values us each individually so highly, that He was willing to pay the price of everything He had, for us. They also process what Rest, Heal, and Play look like when the day you have been given is not the day you were expecting to receive.

Here are just some of the insights from today’s podcast:

“Jesus is patient, and willing to press pause on the doing of ministry, because He cares about me.”

“I can release what I thought today was going to look like to receive what today actually is.”

The #1 thing that holds back leaders: they don’t know how to grieve well; they just add more work.”

“The Lord will give us all the time and attention we need.”

“God is rich with compliments, because He made me and redeemed me.”

“Jesus thinks you’re awesome!”
