In this podcast, Lloyd Clark, Jason’s dad, talks about his faith journey from behavior-focused religious striving into grace and the love of our Father; about waking up every morning in the revelation of being enough. With humor and authenticity, Lloyd talks about the finished work of the Cross, how Jesus fixed the problem of separation, and our invitation to awaken to our union.

Quotes

“The whole sin conscious mindset has you waking up every morning ‘not enough.”’

“Everything we did and everything we built was out of insecurity because we didn’t know we were enough.”

“God never came to me with shame”

“When you’re not enough, everything you do is tainted with insecurity.”

“I know exactly what you’re going through, I know the pain. I have felt that betrayal.”

“If a kid can’t get it, it’s not the gospel.”

“Jesus fixed the problem of separation.”

    Okay, now after listening to this, I realize I might be considered a stalker! haha. No, this was so enjoyable you guys. As you know, I’ve been eagerly anticipating getting to hear from Lloyd because his articles are what God used to speak my love language and open my eyes to his true nature of Love. This was absolutely delightful to listen to. I hope you’ll do it again soon. Loved the story about the Clark Boys. Had a similar experience when someone punched my brother during a hockey game once. I was in the stands and I almost lept on the ice to beat him up. haha. In reality, that’s kind of how I feel when I see anyone attacking ya’ll on social media. I’m like, oh boy, do you wanna GO, people?! haha. Thankfully, Holy Spirit kicks in and I feel compassion for them. This was amazing, thank you so much, and HELLO!? A shout-out!! My day just got so much brighter. Fyi, I know my name is crazy. It’s Dutch, and it’s pronounced Tina-kuh.

      Yeah, that was a very Canadian intro 🙂 Oh, Canada, our home and native land and my dad is my hero so I totally get the way he can encourage and influence.

      It’s Dutch? Very cool! We have some Dutch Canadian friends here in Charlotte and I’ll be asking them about your name.

      Blessings on your week!
