From Hopeless to Hopeful: Waiting For God

Session Date: 
Sunday, April 2, 2017
Speaker: 
Scott Field
Bible Text: 
Psalm 130

How long until God judges the earth and vindicates suffering and death? Or, another way to ask it: “How long until we can see that the suffering and waiting has been worth it?” Even more directly it might be: “Can we trust you, God? Is there any meaning in all this? Why us? How much more do you think we can stand? What are you doing, Lord? 
This Lenten season invites us into this murky place in which we may find ourselves torn between wanting Jesus to be our Good Shepherd and waiting for him to act on our behalf.
Psalm 130 gives us hope with this admonition....
put your hope in the Lord, 
for with the Lord is unfailing love 
and with him is full redemption.
