There are times for joy and times for Sorrow, Understanding great sufferintPsalm 88: Turn to the Lord in times of suffering and distress. Acknowledge the sovereignty of God in the face of trials of various kinds. It is ok to ask the hard questions of the Lord, He can handle your hard questions. The bible understands the depths of human suffering.

Sometimes circumstances in life seem overwhelming. Hardships become too much to handle. Difficulties cause us to wonder, “Where is God in all of this? Is He still in control?” Daniel 1 provides the answer: In spite of outward appearances, God is always in control.
