When life is hard, you know, really hard, we often spend all our time
pleading, begging, yelling, refusing, and questioning. While none of these things
are necessarily unusual, they are missing the ultimate point. When life is
hard, when things get ugly, when all hope seems to be lost... that is when we
are able to display the superiority of the life lived in God.
It is in those
moments of despair, when we question what is happening, when we don't know what
to do, when some trials never...seem...to...end, that we can lean most heavily into
God's promises and truths.
Trusted pastor James MacDonald helps us to understand
what we should do now. Should we just try to weather the storm? Or is there something
greater in God's vision for these difficulties?
