It’s probably fair to say that LIFE doesn’t always go the way you expect – so you often Pray for God’s Help and Guidance in those moments! (However…) Sometimes in those moments of Prayer - it may seem like even though you Pray with Faith - God still doesn’t do what you’ve asked Him to do! (It’s like…) You Seek Him… but don’t Feel His Presence! (Or…) You Go Through Pain… but your Cries for Relief seem to go Unanswered! (And…) Those Moments are REAL/HARD/PAINFUL! (So…) We have One Week Left as we continue looking at WHAT WE CAN DO in Those Moments of Life "WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!" (And…) We're gonna finish up talking about a few more things that we might just Experience If/When we can continually learn HOW to Surrender Our Lives to God's Providential Plans! Don’t Miss the Last Week of our EXCITING Current Series!



Sunday Snapshot… (3) When God Seems UNCOOPERATIVE!


2 Corinthians 12:9b-10… Therefore I will BOAST all the more gladly about MY WEAKNESSES… so that Christ’s Power may rest on me. That is why… for Christ’s sake… I DELIGHT in Weaknesses - in Insults - in Hardships - in Persecutions - in Difficulties. FOR WHEN I AM WEAK – THEN I AM STRONG!


PRAYER is NOT all about Getting God To Do WHAT You Want… it's more often about SURRENDERING YOUR WILL to WHAT God Actually Wants!


PRAYER is meant to Remind Us that WE'RE NOT IN CONTROL... but Keeps Us Close to the ONE WHO IS!


PRAYER isn't just about ASKING… it's also very much about TRUSTING!


It's NOT the SUCCESSES that bring us closer to God… it's the TIMES when we can't do anything else but DEPEND ON GOD… that helps us KNOW HIM in a more INTIMATE WAY!


The GOODNESS OF GOD is always GREATER THAN YOUR PAIN! (And...) Just because He Doesn't Always Make Sense... it doesn't make Him any less God!



See You Sunday Celebrators… (One Service Only - 9a)
