Face the Tough Times with Confidence:
The question is not, “Will I face challenges?” The issue is, “How will I deal with the tough times that come my way?” No one travels far down the road without confronting the sobering reality that life can be hard. The book of Nehemiah is a case study in overcoming life’s challenges. Wave after wave of pain pounded on the shores of Nehemiah’s life, but he kept standing strong. A tsunami of relational, financial, and spiritual attacks came, but he withstood it all in the power of God.
As we meditate on Nehemiah’s story, we discover the hope and victory that come when we walk in God’s wisdom through the challenges of life.
In this series we will see the history of Israel through the eyes of Nehemiah and experience the many successes and larger failures of a leader who tried to restore holy living among the people. We will also witness a story of how bricks and mortar are not enough to rebuild the people’s heart. This series will go to the heart of God’s renovation and how we can learn to appreciate His grace through failure.
