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?
