  • It's Not Supposed to Be This Way - Session 1 - The Birthplace of Disappointment

    Humans are attached to outcomes. We feel certain how things should turn out. We *say* we trust God, but behind the scenes we work our emotions into a tangled fray trying to control our outcomes. We praise God when our normal looks like we expected; we question God when it doesn't. Which aspects o...

  • It's Not Supposed to Be This Way - Session 2 - Living Between Two Gardens

    Feeling the pain is the first step toward healing the pain. To progress toward healing, we must make some holy exchanges. We want God to take away our pain; God wants to develop our character.

We fear God won't provide wh...

  • It's Not Supposed to Be This Way - Session 6 - Kingdom Minded, Eternally Focused

    *Kingdom-minded* means there's a purpose to your pain here and now that has implications for God's kingdom. You may never know the answer to "Why?" in this lifetime, but two of the may possible purposes for your pain are to make you mature and complete (James 1:2-4), and to equip you to comfort o...
