It is one of the most painful, gut-wrenching cries in all of history. Hanging on the Cross, suspended between Heaven and earth, Jesus Christ cries out, “My God! My God! Why have You forsaken Me?!”
Ever been there?
Ever been in such a dark, painful place that you wonder if God has abandoned you?
You are not alone.
We’ve all been there. And best of all, Jesus Himself has been there. The Bible tells us that because Jesus has been there—where your pain is so intense, and the darkness is pitch-black—that He is the best One to help you.
Next Sunday we are kicking off a brand new series called Where’s God? In the darkest moments of our lives, where is God? what is He doing? how can anything good come from this? Please come join us.

So what is the difference between trusting God in the dark places and just hanging on?

I think that these two thoughts are intertwined. The Greek word in the New Testament that is often translated “perseverance” means a hopeful, steadfast looking forward. It’s a perspective that says, “It is difficult and painful now, but I know help is coming. I know there is something around the bend. I know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. And I WILL keep holding on until my deliverance comes.”
I just read a wonderful article about Dr. Bill Bright’s last days on earth, when his health was failing, and his perspective on suffering. You can read it by clicking here.
