Reserving my spot
Overcoming Obstacles to Restoration: Part 2
1. On page 87 we read, “Are we minimizing the pain and suffering of life itself? Not at all. We merely emphasize the fact that our current suffering isn’t the only truth upon which to focus. It isn’t even the primary truth. What our sovereign God has purposed in Heaven is more real than what we can see.”
Respond to this. Do you agree? Disagree? Why or why not?
**NANA** I do agree. I understand. This is a new way to think about this. Makes anything that happens here on earth not quite so important, looking at the big picture.
2. At the bottom of page 87 we read “God uses each and every tear we have shed and every pain we have experienced to form and mold our character, to strengthen us, and to draw us closer to His heart. He wants us to experience His strength and sufficiency. He uses affliction to cause us to see our need for Him and our struggles with food, eating, and our bodies to send us to Him, to look for His solution. In our weakness, He is made strong.”
Respond to this. Do you agree? Disagree? Why or why not? How have you seen this played out in your life, assuming you have? How do you hope to see it in your life?
**NANA** Again, yes, so agree and have experienced this BIG time in the past year or so. It's great reading this, being reminded of this, especially after a rough spot in your life.
3. On page 89, there is a chart under the Take Action sub-heading. If you feel led, please share any experience you have had, how you responded at the time, and the blessings that you were able to see come to you as a result of the trial. If you are in the midst of a trial, consider asking for prayer on our TW study prayer request forum.
