Bridge Over Troubled Water: The Purpose of Trials

James 1:2-12

Ever been a time in your life when a stressful situation pushed you to the very limit? Where a sickness, job loss, death of a loved one, or any other situation became so overwhelming that you seemed powerless - without any sense of control?

Trials are a reality - you can't avoid them. The Bible is clear in that we will all face them - often without warning. It's been said that trials are like storms on the ocean: You don't always see them coming, you can't avoid them, and they're often dangerous.

What does the Bible say about the purposes of trials? When they arise in your life, how should you respond? Tom Pennington helps you get your eyes off the trials and up to heaven itself in his series, Bridge over Troubled Water: The Purpose of Trials.
