Clinging to Hope in Seasons of Loss with Guest Shelly Templin | Life is hard and often doesn’t look like what we thought it would. We all come up against what my friend Shelly House Templin calls a “faith barrier” where we find ourselves asking really hard questions. What do I really believe? Is God really good? Will there be hope or joy again? Shelly and I have both experienced loss in our lives and I bet you have too! Listen in and hear about the HOPE we can find in life even when life is hard and loss seems overwhelming.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NIV

“The God of the universe has absolute love and compassion for us.” ~ Shelly Templin

SO, IF YOU’VE GOT QUESTIONS, I WANT YOU TO KNOW IT’S OKAY TO ASK GOD THE HARD QUESTIONS. He can take it; in fact, He encourages us to come boldly before the throne of grace to find mercy and help in our time of need.

So let us step boldly to the throne of grace, where we can find mercy and grace to help when we need it most. Hebrews 4:16 VOICE
