So you are finding yourself in deep water, and counseling has been suggested as a solution. How will you know whether you need to be counseled? How will you find a Biblical counselor? What are some dangers you should be aware of? The help you need may be nearer than you first thought.
The song writer answered this question for us: “Oh, yes, He cares! I know He cares!” But how does He show that He cares when we face difficulties, disease, disaster, death? Be comforted as you listen to this sermon, and learn to recognize ways that Jesus is showing you that He really cares.
This sounds like it will be hard to do! Do you suppose it would be easier….if we knew that we possessed something of incomparable value that no one can spoil? …if we believed that we have a personal and powerful Friend who will settle all scores fairly someday?
This is a very real problem, and not just "out there"- it is native to us all. Life brings disappointments and pain and circumstances that we can do nothing to change, but God wants us to be overcomers, to get up off the bottom of life and choose to look at life His way.
Life Happens, How will we respond to what life brings our way? will we be a victim of our circumstances or will we allow those circumstances to make us better?
Do you struggle with life’s unanswerable “whys”? Is it God who allows hard things, bad things, pain and death to happen? When we pray and it seems God does not respond, what is wrong?
