A question I’m sure we all ask.
Where was God when…
…I lost my job?
…when Mum died?
…when the floods in Haiti happened?
We discussed it with several scenarios in hand, which lead to a very fruitful discussion
Also there’s a really informative book which also asks this question.
Where is God When it Hurts? Has been revised and updated by the author to explore the many important issues that have arisen during that time. Sensitive and caring, this unique book discusses pain–physical, emotional, and spiritual–and helps us understand why we suffer from it and how to cope with our own and that of others.
Using examples from the Bible as well as the author’s personal experiences, this expanded edition speaks to everyone for whom life sometimes doesn’t make sense. Philip Yancey can help us discover how to reach out to someone in pain even when we don’t know what to say. It shows us how we can learn to accept without blame, anger, or fear that which we cannot understand.
Available to purchase from Amazon, here.
Overall, a warm and intimate meeting with really great questions asked.
God bless A4C!
