An Interview With Drew Marshall–Canada’s Most Listened To Spiritual Talk Show

I hate with a passion the events that changed the course of my life.

I despise the pain I have seen in friends and family–self included–as a result.

At times, the despair has been completely overwhelming.

My faith has wavered on the shakiest of shaky ground.

And yet, we still remain.

Standing.

Sometimes on legs as weak as a new born calf.

Sometimes with strength that surprises me.

And sometimes, the standing is only because I am being propped up with the power of others. (Thank you, Becki and family for the strength you so willing lend)

I may not ever run. But I will limp just as hard and fast as I can in building a new life, a new faith, and a new (pardon the pun) walk with God.

Many of you–in your encouragement to write and press forward–are great supporters. Some of you are old friends, some of you are new friends, and some of you I may never meet in person. But I am thankful all the same.

I love writing and speaking. I am  working hard at improving my craft and finding new opportunities. I will not wallow in self-pity or despair. It is a new day, and I intend to live it to the fullest.

I’m so thankful God allows anger, dissent and argument. He’s good like that..

Aren’t you glad he puts up with you too?

In the meantime, for those who are interested, I am posting the audio to my interview with Drew Marshall: Drew Marshall interview 4-6-13

Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:30-31

Yours,

Les Ferguson, Jr.

  1. Les, I continue to limp along with you as we go through this journey of life. You have amazing strength and determination in the face of such an awful tragedy. I thank you for your articles. I look forward to each one. Keep the faith and keep on writing.

  2. I have sent two people to your blog in the last two days who are either angry with God or struggling with their faith…. You have a ministry here, my friend…. You are helping others without even realizing it, I think.

  3. My wife Ann and I enjoyed the interview Les. You did a great job! And listening to you reminded me of my paternal Mississippi roots. 🙂

    I so agree with you that the issues for folks who hurt deeply are really more about wrestling with God and learning to trust him again. Sadly so many see God as the abusive heavenly Father and may never trust Him again. It is why a different view of God is required to be able to trust again. Sometimes long-held beliefs need to be explored and changed for healing to come.

  4. I started following your blog after a friend of mine posted a link on facebook a few weeks back. I have so admired your strength and courage in your wrestling with God. Today I listened to your talk with Drew Marshall. It shocks me each time I think of what happened back then but I am filled with admiration again at your determination. Keep us posted on the book when it comes out!!
