“Faithful, Not Predictable”

SPEAKER: Troy Champ

Easter reminds us that God can take the world’s darkest moment and turn it into a miracle. Do you ever feel like God has forgotten about you or that he doesn’t care about your job, finances, or love life? Never assume God is done working. His timing is often different than our timing. Easter reminds us that God can meet us in our pain and grief with good news, with hope, and with love. Our role is to respond with faith, trust, and belief in the faithfulness of an unpredictable God.
