Topic: When Darkness Descends

Trusting God in Suffering and Trials
Wisdom from the Book of Job

Living in a broken world brings suffering and trials to all of us, but they can be especially hard for the Christian who knows that God is sovereign over every detail of our lives. We don’t always know why things happen the way they do but can we trust the one who does? The book of Job is about a man going through extreme suffering, the inevitable questions it raises and how his friends seek to answer them. It is not really about why suffering happens so much as how to respond when suffering happens and how the Lord might be using it for His purposes. There are no easy answers but there is real comfort for the believer who learns to trust the Lord even in the darkest of times.  

Come and join us this year, as we learn from God’s Word together.
