HOPE IN HEARTACHE
Many of us have been in circumstances that felt completely hopeless. Being told to look at the bright side doesn’t help. Perhaps there is no bright side. Perhaps things actually won’t get better. Heartache is real. This week we’ll meet a hero who didn’t want to be a hero. What a heartbreaking life. Our hero saw the unfaithfulness of his country. They were worshiping idols, they put their faith in their own strength instead of God. And destruction was coming. And then he saw it happen; foreign empire invaded and destroyed their land, sending them all into exile. Into this heartbreak, God called him to speak of hope and restoration. This Sunday we’ll look at where hope can even be found in the midst of hopeless circumstances.
Peace, Pastor Mia
