A Theology of Suffering

one of the most clear; most biblically sound series on suffering. 

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord | Romans 8: 38-39

1. Principle of Faith - “God’s work done God’s way will not lack God’s supply” (Hudson Taylor); so we need to always walk in prayerful communion with Him so that our decisions conform to His word and His will. 

2. Principle of Accountability - we must be guided by sound principles based on God’s truth and professional practice

3. Principle of Stewardship - in all we do, we want to please the Lord and must therefore spend or invest wisely what He has gifted us. 

4. Principle of Contentment - we shall not ask God or people for more than we need, being joyful and thankful within the means God has provided

5. Principle of Equity - pay your dues/obligations and be owing people continually only the debt of love 

"God is doing a greater work in us, and that can only come as we learn to trust him no matter how dark the days and sleepless the nights. And it is only as we have been through the darkness with him that what we know with our heads slides down into our hearts, and our hearts no longer demand answers. The Why? becomes unimportant when we believe that God can and will redeem the pain for our good and his glory… . When I put the sovereignty of God beside his unfailing love, my heart can rest."
