Day 1 of 3 • This day’s reading


We all experience difficult and often painful circumstances as a result of our actions, other people’s actions, or things beyond our control. Major life issues—such as the death of a loved one, loss of employment, serious illness, financial pressures—can be overwhelming.

The God of the Bible, whose ways are far beyond what we can think or imagine, invites us to humble ourselves and turn to Him for help. When we do, He provides answers to our deepest needs. Although God cares about our immediate needs, He is even more concerned about our relationship with Him. He desires for each of us to put our faith and trust in Him and be attentive to His direction.

During this video, we’ll learn about a woman who faced an agonizing dilemma. She had meager resources, a seemingly impossible situation and no good solutions. But she did the only thing she could think to do—and her obedient faith and willingness to follow godly counsel led to incredible blessing from God.
