There's a lot of joy at Christmas. And yet, there’s a lot of pain too, especially for people who have lost loved ones or who have painful memories around this time of year.

We want to acknowledge there is pain and there's suffering and it's part of our lives and yet, for those of us who are in Christ, we still have hope, even in the midst of our darkest hours.

Back in episode 10, we talked about a woman who demonstrated faithfulness in pain: Hannah. Do you remember her story?

Her story shows us that God is not only sovereign over the nations and history, but He's also sovereign over our lives and always has a reason for what happens in our lives, even the hard things.

Sometimes we just need to take a step back and remember that God allows things for a reason. And there is no wasted pain when we belong to Christ.
