86,400 seconds. The length of a day.
Have you ever thought about that? Let that number sink in for a minute OOBT friends, and then be sure to join M as she helps us consider the many ways God can (and often does) use the heartbreak and pain of walking through one more TODAY in the midst of our own struggles…
the next 86,400 seconds… and the next and the next.
AND SPOILER ALERT HERE:: M takes us for a peek at the end of the book of Job. Have you ever been guilty of that too? Of reading a book that was getting so intense, you just had to look ahead to see how it turned out in an effort to ease your mind about what was happening in the moment?
M admits she is MOST CERTAINLY guilty as charged of doing that
and she definitely goes there in today’s episode.
This one is jam-packed with all this and so much more -
it is one you don’t want to miss!
// Show Notes //
Below are some reflection questions M found at the end of the “But How Do I Get Through the Next 86,400 Seconds?" chapter she read excerpts from in today’s episode as found in Lysa TerKeurst’s book, It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way.
Please take out your journal and spend a bit of time considering your answers to the following questions…
- Which of your prayers are going seemingly unanswered by God?
- How are you inviting the Lord into your everyday situations, and how can you improve in drawing near to Him?
- God is powerfully at work in your life and situation. What would it look like for you to rest in that truth today?
- What if God never tells you why He is allowing your disappointment? How does this story of Job personally help you?
