When Everything Goes Wrong
Sunday, July 17, 2016
Sometimes, things can go really wrong in our life. Maybe it is a work thing or a school thing or a family thing. Almost always it is a relationship thing. And often it gets really messy, doesn’t it? It shouldn’t have. Maybe you weren’t perfect. But you tried to do what was right and you made sure you weren’t disobeying God. But somehow, what should have been a good thing became a huge mess. And now you are stuck and you are wondering: Where is God in all of this? Does He even know? And if He does know, doesn’t He care? This is the story of Genesis 16. It is the story of three people who tried to do what was best and how it all became a big mess and how God cared for them in the midst of it all.
