154.0 Unanswered Prayers: How to Know God is Still Good in Hard Times.



When you lose a loved one, there is no question that you will question some things.  I don’t care how close a relationship you have or don’t have with God, you will question things from his existence to your faith and everything in between because your loved one has died.  This is where your plans, the life you were living and expecting to continue to live ‘bump into the sovereignty of God.’

That bump for me made me question my questions and his goodness. It made me question whether he was there and listening because Monica’s faith was not rewarded, she was not healed and she suffered the 6 months before she died. What kind of God allows that?

It doesn’t matter where you are today in your relationship with God because great transformation is possible for you!  Yes, you can get through the day without crying (it took me over a year), Yes, you can think about your loved one without falling apart and yes, you do still have a future because God is real, he is good, and he has plans for you!

Today, I’ll share how to spiritually handle unanswered prayers and how to build a deep faith even in grief. God will not waste your pain!!  


WORD of the Week   Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way. James 1:2-4

Song of the Week   Stay Strong by Danny Gokey
