Trusting God with our children

May 17, 2016



In this episode, Andrew Ray talks with David Powlison and Tim Lane about trusting the Lord with our children. The discussion was prompted by a listener’s concern for their children: “We have recently moved our one-year-old, who is our first child, from our room to his own bedroom. I’m finding it really difficult. I know God works in all things for the good of those who love him, but I don’t know yet if my son is included in that category, and so fear for his safety both physically and spiritually. I know God is good, but I read Lamentations recently and was reminded of all the awful things that happened to God’s people then to children in particular.”
