We are currently studying Can I Be Honest? How To Process and Express Your Emotions in a Biblical Way, A Study of the Book of Lamentations, a five-week study in the First 5 app that ends March 29.
What do you do when you gain hope — only to lose it again?
The cycle is exhausting: seeing glimpses of goodness and trusting that God will come through, only for things not to work out … yet another time. In these raw and painful seasons, most of us don't want to admit to feeling upset, disappointed or angry, especially when it's toward God. But He is the very One who created emotions, and He has given us a guide in the book of Lamentations for what to do with them.
In the midst of situations that beg us to see God as anything but good, Lamentations provides a way to actually grow closer to Him. This study is your permission to feel your feelings while still keeping your eyes on Jesus: the greatest hope we have.
This study guide includes:
- Daily study questions to help you process through how your faith and feelings work together.
- A step-by-step guide to better understand the poetic structure of Lamentations so you can see the culture and artistry of the language often missed in English translations.
- Answers to some of your most asked questions: Did God create emotions? Does He feel emotions? Is it OK to feel anger and disappointment toward Him?
- Weekend reflections and prompts that will help you practice regularly talking to God more freely and honestly.
- Much more!
