A black heart with the word "SCARS navigating suffering and loss" in gold

Is There Purpose in the Pain?

We all experience pain and loss during our life. At the time, it can be difficult to understand the purpose behind it.

Have you asked…

If God loves me, why does he allow suffering?

How can God possibly redeem my pain?

How can I see past my loss and find hope?

You are not alone. The Bible says that His grace is sufficient, and His strength is made perfect in weakness. Romans 8:28 says, “…all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

God Uses Our Wounds

We try to avoid pain, but God wants to use it. God redeems pain and suffering for a greater and glorious good. He allows us to suffer to humble us and make us more Christ-like.

1 Corinthians 1:3-4

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

We are wounded and scarred in this life, but God uses our wounds to bring comfort to others.

What Is Scars?

Scars, a 6-week study, gives you a biblical understanding of suffering. It confronts the lies many people believe about pain and suffering and sheds the light of truth on them so you can receive a message of hope in the middle of your hurt.
