  • Gary shared 3 things we need to remember when we’re going through a tough time… was there anything he shared that was helpful to you when you think about going tough times?
  • Can you think of any other Biblical truths that can help get you through tough times?
  • Why is that whenever something bad happens to us our first reaction, many times, is that God has abandoned us or must not love us very much?  What can we do to counteract that?

  • Gary said that God can take the worst thing that’s ever happened to you and turn it into the best thing that’s ever happened to you?  Have you seen that in your life?  
  • Sometimes the only thing that may help us get through the challenges of life is our hope of heaven. That’s not just pie-in-the-sky — it’s truth!
  • How can your hope for the future help your attitude in dealing with the trials in your life now?
