Podcast: God isn’t finished writing your story (Coaches series, w/ Lance Gilliland)

coaches series podcast Jun 16, 2021


I had my friend Lance over to  the #Hilltop to record a talk about faith and we got to chatting so quick I forgot to take notes…

in this discussion, we move into the realm of faith-- and talk about Lance's story. Part of it anyway.

That leads us to a encounter from his childhood when he stole a handful of Jolly Ranchers, felt he’d gotten “left behind” in the rapture because of his disobedience, and then met grace…

… something that’s always scandalous— even to the religious and upright.


In this episode, Lance and I talk about the fact that, as Hebrews 12:2 says, Jesus is the Author and Perfecter of our faith. That is, He is writing our story.

And, as Paul suggested in Ephesians 2:8-10, He’s completing a story He fore-ordained centuries— even millennia— ago. That means He’s not simply “doing the best He can” with what’s left on the scrap pile after you’ve made a mess of things. He’s literally working things together for your growth— and for your good.

Furthermore, as odd as it sounds, you can’t out-strip the grip of grace NOR out-flank His ability to do something powerful in your life.


This episode is for the down-trodden, the beaten-up, the smacked-around, the ones who might feel disqualified… and un-blessable. We promise, that qualifies you above all else.

Listen in…

… the party’s just getting started.
