Hope in the Dark

Week 1

Scripture to Read

Habakkuk 1:2-13

Psalm 23:4-6


What’s your favorite sitcom of all time?

Diving Deeper
  1. Why is the structure of the sitcom (friendly beginning, conflict, resolution) so appealing to us? Is this an unrealistic expectation of real life? Why or why not?
  2. As you read through Habakkuk 1, what’s the most difficult thing for you to process?
  3. How is Habakkuk’s story similar to that of Job? How is it different?
  4. When have you doubted God’s involvement or goodness?
  5. Have your doubts ever eventually strengthened your faith? Why or why not?
  6. How do injustices in your personal life, your community, and the world impact your faith?
  7. In Habakkuk 1:12-13, Habakkuk follows up effusive praise to God with questioning and doubt. How can you relate to this quick shift?
  8. When you question God, how does it make you feel?
