4 Ways to Steward Your Season of Suffering Well

Update: 2020-02-187


The older we get, the easier it is to recognize that life is a combination of suffering and joy. While we look forward to the joyful times, our suffering has the potential to draw us closer to the Lord … if we choose to steward that season well. 

So, how do we do that?

Today on the Proverbs 31 Ministries Podcast, First 5 writer Lyli Dunbar draws from her own life experiences and the book of Daniel to show us four ways to steward our season of suffering well. And guess what? They all start with the letter “P” to make note-taking easy. 

With this episode, you will…

  • Learn the importance of establishing a routine of getting into God’s Word daily in order to build a strong foundation to stand on when your world gets shaky.

  • Discover scriptures in the Psalms you can run to that will help you practice trading the tendency to panic with the power of prayer.

  • Understand how worshipping during hard times helps you trust that God is working even when you can’t see it.
