Suffering's purpose is often hidden behind a cloud of confusion about God's character and His refinement process. We brace ourselves against future suffering, cry through present pain, and heave sighs of relief post trauma. Is it possible there is a better way to face life’s trials? Severe neurological Lyme and a metabolic disorder that went undiagnosed for ten years caused Cheryl to experience years of unnecessary and seemingly endless private suffering. The trials taught her much about the love of her heavenly Father. He supplied during times of need in ways Cheryl could not appreciate or understand during times of plenty.

Jesus’s earthly ministry included many miracles involving healing. Yet His message was much more profound than that of relief from physical pain. Often we look for escape from our circumstances while God is using the same to heal us at our core.

Join us on September 21st to hear about a journey through intense pain to a sweet place of contentment and joy.
