 Description: We all know the feeling. We take a leap, only to land flat on our faces. Just when our plan appears to be perfect, it falls apart. Life's failures and disappointments can make it difficult to move forward; how do we pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off?

In an effort to learn to persevere and trust in God during life’s most trying times, author and pastor Matt Miofsky examines the life of Jeremiah, whose failed pursuits are described in more detail and depth than with any other prophet. Even though God set him apart to speak to the nation of Israel, Jeremiah's attempts to fulfill his calling were met with ridicule, punishment, and suffering. But through it all, God never left his side. Offering a remedy for an anxiety-driven society, the story of "the weeping prophet" has much to teach us about trusting God during life's most trying times. A thoughtful, engaging Bible study that is rooted in good scholarship, but also relevant to life, the sessions include:

1) Jeremiah’s Story (11:35 min)
2) The Do-Over (13:12 min)
3) In the Pit (12:27 min)
4) Finding Hope (11:33 min)
5) On the Other Side of Exile (11:50 min)
