God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

God in Suffering

Suffering comes in all forms and sizes – heart issues, brain tumors, problems in a marriage, problems with children, losing a job or being in depression. I could name 1000 more but we get the point. Suffering is part of life. As a matter of fact, the Creator of all things subjected Himself to the worlds greatest suffering 2000 years ago. So it should not come as a huge surprise when we face various trials of different kinds. But even though we should not be surprised when trials come they nevertheless come often times with fury that is hard and heavy on the soul.

The below link is a few songs from a group called THEJOYETERNAL that were inspired by John Pipers book “A Sweet and Bitter Providence” which deals with God’s sovereignty and providence in and through our sufferings. It will feed and help lighten the load on your soul should you choose to listen I believe.


Also the video posted below is a short message given by Matt Chandler recently on suffering. He is dealing with brain cancer. It’s worth the listen as well.
