What do we need to remember in the midst of our suffering?
Today we open the book of Job, a complex story about a good man who suffered the cosmic loss of everything. What did God want Job to know in the midst of his suffering? And what do we need to know in our own suffering? In this episode, we remember that we're not alone in hardship and that God is trustworthy. Even when the pain is so intense that we can barely see beyond it, God is at work limiting chaos and giving life.

Read: Job 38:1-18, Job 42:1-6
God created the whole universe. He cares for creation in ways that stretch far beyond our comprehension. We might not understand why we suffer, but we can know that we are not alone in our suffering. God knows the pain we feel. He feels it too. So when our pain doesn’t make sense and it’s so intense that we can barely see beyond it, we can trust that God is at work limiting chaos and giving life.
