Product Description

Is it possible for our faith in God to deepen despite loss, heartache, struggle, and pain?

Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story's life testifies that God doesn't promise to save us from all hardship. No matter how hard we pray, sometimes our circumstances don't change.

Laura's own story took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The devastating news forever changed their lives and challenged Laura's belief in the little control she thought she had. Her discovery: that her struggles to accept her new situation ended up convincing her even more strongly of God's faithfulness and love.

In this five-session video study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Laura shares her deeply personal testimony and renewed hope to help us:

  • Examine the promises of the gospel and what the Bible says about our experiences here on Earth.
  • See how the hardships endured by some of the men and women of the Bible teach us how God works in our lives to bring us closer to him.
  • Understand that the possibility exists for a deeper intimacy with God, whose everlasting promises remain no matter what happens in this life.

This study guide includes leader helps, video discussion questions, Bible exploration questions, and personal study and reflection materials for in-between sessions.

Sessions include:

  1. Don't Be Surprised by Trouble - Healthy ways of recognizing the existence of loss and pain without being paranoid or cynical.
  2. Best-Made Plans - A closer look at human plans and God's plans and how they might be different.
  3. When God Doesn't Fix It - How stories of imperfect lives and struggles can showcase God's faithfulness and what that means for us.
  4. Why? The Question on Replay - Finding freedom in not having all the answers.
  5. A Better Broken - How to change despite our unchanging circumstances.

Designed for use with When God Doesn't Fix It Video Study (sold separately).

Laura Story's life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The devastating news forever changed their lives and brought Laura's dreams of a fairy-tale life to an end. Yet her struggles to accept her new situation also brought her deeper joy and intimacy with God as she allowed him to rewrite her story.

In this five-session curriculum (DVD/digital video sold separately), Laura examines the twists and turns that took place not only in her own life but also in the lives of many of the heroes of the faith. She reveals how God used crises in the lives of people such as Abraham, Sarah, David, and Paul to bring them closer to him and set them on the path he wanted them to take. She also shows how God used each of these individuals in spite of their flaws and brokenness.

God may not fix everything in our lives. In fact, our situation might not ever change or get better. But we can know that God will lead us to a place where we are better because of it.
