Why does God allow suffering? Is God just? Does God rule this world with true justice? Why do bad things happen to good people?
We all have these questions sometime in our lives. As someone dealing with divorce, you may be questioning these right now.
One of the most unique books of the Bible is Job. It is known for it’s teaching on suffering.
I could give you a bunch of encouraging words, anecdotes, feel-good methods, and applications when it comes to suffering. I will choose instead to point you to this video.
If you are struggling with suffering and just need questions like those above answered, take just 11 minutes and watch this. It is an overview of the whole book of Job from The Bible Project. It can do in 11 minutes what most preachers and counselors would take weeks to convey.
The end of the video does help describe how to process suffering and leads us to lean into God through prayer and faith.
After you watch the video, feel free to let me know in the comments your thoughts, feelings, or just let me know if it helped you. I would love to hear from you.
Here is a more question and answer/simpler version. More story telling. 7 minutes.
