There are challenges and obstacles along with struggles and battles that are equally part of the journey of following Jesus, which means we ought to speak to those times and do our best to provide encouragement for those seasons of life and faith as well.
This month is one of those times. Our theme for the month is Suffering. If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time, it didn’t take long for you to realize that just because you have chosen to follow God, your life will all-of-a-sudden get easy. In fact, it often feels like the opposite is true!
Perhaps this is what makes staying the course on our faith journeys so difficult...the struggle to reconcile believing in a “good” God while living in, and experiencing the consequences of, a fallen world.
As we embark on this journey together, our prayer is for you to be supported in your faith, encouraged in your struggle, and strengthened in your suffering.
Our journey was never promised to be easy, but God has promised that we wouldn’t have to go through it alone!
This months box contains:
Our Everyday Faith Devotional - which you can follow along with on our youtube channel. And a Spiritual Inventory card to help you keep track of your personal progress each month.
Our Book featured for this month's box is: Finding God in the Hardest Times by Matt and Beth Redman. Matt Redman and his wife, Beth, draw on their experiences to explore how to offer praise even in the face of hardship and pain.

An Army of Love for Children in Need
Qaraqosh Cross Necklace
Reload Love believes babies and bullets don’t mix, so they melt down spent bullet casings and upcycle them into beautiful pieces of jewelry that help raise awareness and funds for projects that help them. The Qaraqosh Cross included in your Faithbox tells the story of the people living in Qaraqosh, Iraq; a city that was once home to the country’s largest Christian community. The proceeds from each necklace purchased go towards the construction and opening of playgrounds for children. Experts say that one of the key steps in trauma recovery is re-establishing normalcy, which is why playgrounds are built to provide something normal and fundamental to a child’s well-being.
