If God loves me, why doesn’t He take my anxiety away?
If God can do all things, why doesn’t He give me a new job?
What is God’s purpose in allowing him to die?

Why didn’t God save my marriage?

Why did she get that job I wanted?

God tells us to be generous.

He tells us to love and forgive people who have hurt us.

Like Jesus, do the hard stuff. (Faith is sacrifice)

“Abba, Father,” he cried out, “everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” Mark 14:36

Physically, emotionally and spiritually … No pain no gain is a real deal.

  • Be humble
  • Give generously
  • Think of others more than you think of yourself.
  • Forgive those who hurt you
  • Pray for your enemies.
  • Be like Jesus

Don’t glamourize the be like Jesus stuff.
