Hard Times

God is a wise Father who sometimes refuses what you want to give you what you need. (H. B. Charles Jr, pastor)

Joni Erickson Tada put it this way “God will permit some things that He hates, but He’ll allow those things so that something He loves can be accomplished.” In every life there are those really hard times of suffering or difficulty when we ask, “Why, why me, why now?” And the answers don’t seem to come. That’s where unrelenting faith in a loving God is the anchor to depend on.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. . . This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. (Proverbs 3:5; Hebrews 6:19)
