Focus Friday: Navigating Life’s Unavoidable Difficulties 

This weeks focus Friday comes from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Chapel. Pastor Rick Holland points out 3 Christian distinctives when facing difficult circumstances from Romans 5.

  1. Joyful Sufferings
  2. Knowing God is Doing Something
  3. God Comforts Us

Pastor Rick also encourages us to ask 3 questions when going through trial;

  1. What do you feel? Many times we feel sad, angry, hurt, hopeless when in the midst of trials
  2. What do you think? Too often our feeling impacts our thinking; this is horrible, this is not going to go good.
  3. What do you know? “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

Let what you know guide how you feel and think. I pray this impacts you like it has me.
