Have you ever found yourself in a situation that was daunting and out-of-your control? Have you ever been left wondering, “what in the world just happened?” Have you ever watched catastrophe race through your life like an unexpected tornado? Have you ever woke to find your day unfold with disappointment? Have you ever been running your race and stumbled? Have you ever been “living the dream” when all of a sudden it felt like it turned into a nightmare? Have you ever tossed and turned through a night because the weight of your thoughts ran sleep off every time it approached? Have you ever watched a family member run away from God that it left you gasping in shock?

The above list of question could go on-and-on.

Every reader of this post, every living person in this world has had something bad, unforeseen, unfair, or hurtful come their way. Heartaches are no respecter of persons.

Friend, listen to me…NEITHER IS GOD!

Scripture is filled with those who have stories that reflect the above list of questions and then some. Some of the characters of the Bible brought heartache on themselves, but there were others where heartache was allowed so that others could see Christ more clearly.

So, what does one do during the difficult seasons of life? Where should one turn when the chaos of life has us spinning in circles and nauseous?
