On one fateful day, Jon Hagedorn gathered his wife and children to engage in a family tradition of theirs, something they did to make sure they always remembered God’s goodness and faithfulness. But they couldn’t have known how much that belief was going to be tested. Mere hours later, Jon’s wife died suddenly. Facing life as a single father while dealing with his own grief, Jon had no choice to face the same questions that any of us would ask in that situation. Is God really good or really faithful if he let this happen? To conclude our Widowhood Series, Jon sits down with Davey to share his story and how he found a deeper, richer knowledge of God in the midst of unimaginable pain.

If you’re following what’s happening at Nothing Is Wasted Ministries, you probably know that last week was a significant week for us. Last Monday, the trial was set to begin for the man accused of murdering Amanda Blackburn, Davey’s late wife. More than six years later, this chapter of the story was finally ready to come to an end. However, mere minutes before the trial was set to start, a careless mistake caused it to be declared a mistrial. Now facing several more months of waiting, it seems like this season will never end, and we’re left asking “Where is God in this?”

 

On this special episode of the Nothing Is Wasted Podcast, Davey shares his reflections on the failed trial, and what God is teaching him and all of us when we’re stuck waiting.
