    Embrace the Wait
    1. Position myself to hear from God.
    Life Point: God’s silence doesn’t mean His absence.
     
    2. Position myself to receive, believe, and remember what God says to me.
    Life Point: The enemy of our soul wants to steal truth from us.
     
    3. Position myself to wait. Life Point: God’s seeming delays in your life are not denials. God’s timing is perfect and it can’t be stopped.

    The First Chapter of My Pain
    Habakkuk – to embrace, to wrestle 
    Painful Question: 
    This isn’t fair, God and you don’t make sense; what are you doing? 
     
    Wrestling with God might look like:
    A.  Questioning God’s care.
    B.  Questioning God’s apparent absence.
    C.  Questioning God’s fairness in my situation. 
     
    When we get punched in the soul…
    1.  It can drive us to discover the nature of God.
    2.  It can drive us to raw honesty about ourselves and our situations.
    3.  It can drive us to a place that surrenders our own efforts for a reliance on God.

    Growing
    Today’s Great Choice:
    I take daily time with God for Bible reading, self-examination, and prayer in order to know God and his will for my life and to gain the power to follow his will.
     
    How to keep making choices that are great:
    1. Reserve time daily with God.
    2. Fill my mind with Scripture.
    3. Focus on my healthy goals, not my mess.
    4. Admit and confess failures quickly.
    5. Flee, but don’t fear, our weaknesses.
    6. Live in community.
    7. Hang on and finish.

    Bitter or Better

    2. The unforgiving become the unforgiven
     
    How can I become a forgiver?
    1.  Nail it to the Cross.
    2.  Start Today
