Helpful Quote:

“Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pain: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”    —C.S. Lewis

Discussion Questions:

  • Can you think of a “storm” in your life where you could see after the fact how God used it for your good? How does that change your perception of other storms?
  • Are you more likely to doubt that God has determined your destination, or that He is trustworthy with how you get there? How does this passage speak to you?
  • Do you have an example in your life of how God has used your experience with pain (like Paul’s snakebite) to minister to others?
