Suffering: Suffering Defeated Me

Paul Tripp admits that suffering defeated him, but it never defeats God. The promise that God will never leave us nor forsake us and the reality that the Lord is near will give us strength and hope when suffering overwhelms us.

Sometimes life just hurts. Out of nowhere, death, illness, unemployment, or a difficult relationship can change our lives and challenge everything we thought we knew. But, in the midst of all this pain and confusion, we are not alone. In these short 3 minute videos Paul Tripp weaves together his personal story, pastoral ministry experience, and biblical insights, to help us trust God in the midst of suffering. He identifies traps to avoid in our suffering and points us instead to comforts to embrace. These raw yet hope-filled videos based on his book will help you cling to God's promises when trials come and move forward with the hope of the gospel.

Length: 3mins
