Today’s scripture: Psalm 79: 1-9
In the face of the exile & devastation of Jerusalem, Israel wonders how long will God be angry? The psalm raises a most difficult question for us: How we see God working in our experience of the world’s suffering.
We can be honest about our experience of suffering. The Bible certainly is. Suffering can be a barrier to faith for many but it is a place where need God.
To own & embrace our heartache & know that God feels our pain as well, that God suffers with us. We are never alone in our heartache.
Learn they can depend on God to be with us in the hardest times, that our faith can continue to speak to us a message of hope, even in times of pain.
