Seminar Description

Adversity is hard to endure, and can even be harder to understand. It's easy to trust God when everything's going your way. But what about when things go wrong? Have you ever asked yourself the following questions:

  • If God were really in control, why has God allowed this situation to happen?
  • Why does God allow horrible things to happen to people and nations?
  • Is anyone really in charge?
  • If God is loving, powerful and wise, why am I in this mess?
  • Is God punishing me by allowing these circumstances in my life? What have I done wrong?
  • Can I really trust God with my life and my future?
  • Can God use adversity to accomplish good in my life and in the lives of others?

If you have a desire to understand God's Sovereign hand in this world and to trust Him more in every situation, you will not want to miss this seminar.
