- “When Life is Hard” by
James McDonald: Monday, March 21st at 7:00pm in the Quads.
- Why Does Life Have to Be
So Hard? If you’re one of God’s children, you’re going through a trial right
now… This six=message series is all about providing you with God’s answers to
that question. Very real, very practical answers, straight from God’s Word. Is
it physical? Is it relational? Is it economic? Is it emotional? Is it
circumstantial? God said to expect trials. He also promises to be with you in
them – working in you, helping you, and growing you. He wants this trial to
change you. He is in your trial right now and He can use it to accomplish great
things. The trials that God allows have purpose; they can change YOU! Find
God’s purpose in your pain and don’t allow bitterness, unbelief or
discouragement to rob you of the treasure God is refining in you. Go for the
gold! “But [God] knows the way that I take; when he has tried me, I shall come
out as gold.” Job 23:10

you been a wallflower? The hurt and disappointment of life can blot out the
beauty of a bold, vivacious woman, but God intends for you to dance the dance
of your life in His lavish embrace. Angela Thomas uses dancing to describe
living fully in Christ’s love. Dancing is about loving people in perfect step
with His love for you and enjoying a passionate life, free of emptiness and
fear. Inside the strength of His embrace, you can become the woman you have
always wanted to be; the one He intended for you to become!
