It's Not Supposed to Be This Way OBS is over but you can still get study materials in our store!


FREE access to the 6-week video Online Bible Study by Lysa TerKeurst

The It's Not Supposed to Be This Way Online Bible Study will take us on a journey through scripture that proves that in the midst of disappointments, God is still good.

Whether you're here for the first time or going through the study again (it's that good!), we believe you've made it here for a reason. And we can't think of a more fitting message for the uncertain times we're facing than Lysa's word of hope: "What if all of this is actually... good"? ... That the Author of "all that is" has seen every disappointment, trial, and uncertainly of today and still saw every second of it necessary to get us to where we are going.

Will you join us? You don’t have to fight through your disappointments, tears and unanswered questions alone.

Sometimes to get your life back, you have to face the death of what you thought your life would look like.

- Lysa TerKeurst, It's Not Supposed to Be This Way

About the study...

Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.

Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she’s also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God.

In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa TerKeurst offers fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations and life-giving perspectives for living in between Eden and eternity.
