ACTS 16:11-40

-

A BUSINESS WOMAN, A SLAVE GIRL, AND A PRISON GUARD 

 -

How do you respond when your plans simply don't work out? What about when you face opposition? When you are mistreated or suffering? Most of us spend our lives trying to avoid these three scenarios, but there are times when God hinders our best laid plans, or puts someone irritating in our lives, or allows pain and suffering in order to accomplish something better for His glory. Our response in these moments reveals more about our faith than maybe anything else. Join us this week as we look at the gospel's work in the midst of life's interruptons. And take heart, God is up to something good.
