Are We Asking God All the Wrong Questions? Jesus on Pain

When the storms of life come our way, when pain suddenly hits, we look to God for answers. But in the process, are we truly asking God the right questions? Are we looking for salvation from the struggle, when we should be asking God to join us in the midst of the storm? Changing the question can change everything.

Drawing on my own experience dealing with the storms of life, and the larger issues our world is facing, I examine John 6:16-21, when Jesus walks on water. I then compare the passage to the other gospel accounts to show how Jesus wishes to join us in our struggles.
