Let's Be Real: Suffering
As we start this new series: “Let’s Be Real: Growing Through Life’s Challenges” there is no greater challenge than dealing with suffering. Suffering of one kind or another visits all people throughout their lifetimes. But suffering often confuses us and makes us question God, others or ourselves. Because suffering can be so painful we often don’t know how to talk about it, or think there is not much good that can come from it. But God's Word is full of people who suffered, the foremost being Christ, and it teaches us about the many redemptive purposes that God has for allowing suffering in our life. And, thankfully, one day God will put an end to all suffering and complete His redemptive plan for His people and His creation.
