2020-01-19 - Finding Hope in the Struggles of Life - Week 02
Author Philip Yancey says that, “adversities”, “hardships and the “struggles of life” are “the gifts nobody wants.” And just the thought of these, can create fear, tension and stress that at times...is hard to overcome. Unfortunately, this is the reality that we all live in today. Sometimes we are going to go through times of struggles and adversities where our faith will be tested, and we will wonder if God is on vacation. And whether you want to believe me or not, even though that’s how we feel, we can still find hope.
In fact, there’s a great example of this in the Old Testament from the life of David. During a dark season of life, when his son was trying to take his life, David discovered hope. It was during this time that he wrote Psalm 23 and his hope was found as he wrote verse 1... “The Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything I need!”
This Sunday morning January 12th, we’re going to begin a 6-week journey called, “Finding Hope in the Struggles of Life”. This journey will hopefully help us to change how we respond to life’s struggles as we dive deeply into the depths of Psalm 23.
Let me encourage you to get the word out and invite friends, family, co-workers, the guy or gal on the street...actually anyone and everyone you meet.
Can't wait to dive into this amazing Psalm.
