Is God Sovereign Over Suffering? We Interview Author Brooke Bartz

by | Feb 27, 2020 | Tulips and Honey

We’re all going to struggle at one point or another in our life, is God sovereign over that pain, sorrow, struggle? And what do we do with that Biblical truth? Humblebee’s, today’s episode features a very special guest, our dear sister-in-Christ, and author, Brooke Bartz. Mrs. Bartz, author of Chronic Love: Trusting God While Suffering With a Chronic Illness, has been struggling with Rheumatoid Arthritis for several years now. This led her to write the book we’ll be discussing today, after she looked around and noticed that most of the “Christian” books on the subject were not actually helpful for those in daily pain. We talked about the background of her book, her testimony, how she met and married her husband, her chronic illness, and God’s sovereignty over everything she has been through. Below is a timestamped outline for ease of travel through this conversation.
