Description

Where is God when it hurts? Doesn't God care when we pass through the storms of life? And if He does, why not simply navigate the storms away from dedicated disciples of Christ? This lesson seeks to reinforce the truth that the "storms" of life come even to the most dedicated of disciples. The only question is how we will handle the storms as they come.
