It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way – Week 6

Kingdom-minded means there’s a purpose to your pain here and now that has implications for God’s kingdom. You may never know the answer to “Why?” in this lifetime, but two of the many possible purposes for your pain are to make you mature and complete (James 1:2-4), and to equip you to comfort others (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). Eternally focused means we are headed to a restored Eden. There are unseen and eternal things at work in our lives that far…

It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way – Week 5

The enemy wants us to have an eroded trust in God and an elevated trust in ourselves. Often it’s fear that leads us into temptation regarding our perceived needs (lust of the flesh), misplaced desires (lust of the eyes), and things we think we deserve (pride of life). We fear God won’t provide what we need, want, or deserve, so we justify getting these things our own way. Be careful about trying to be true to yourself…make sure you’re not…

It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way – Week 4

Having to endure a long season of disappointment isn’t a cruel way to keep you from God’s promise; it’s the exact preparation…

It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way | Week 2

What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful? Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. Lysa TerKeurst shares her own shattering circumstances and shows us how to live assured when life doesn’t turn…

It’s Not Supposed To be This Way | Week 1

Why did God let this happen? Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? Bible teacher Lisa Terkeurst deeply understands daily disappointments in a life-altering loss. By walking through her own valley, she’s discovered that in God we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings.
