We will all have disappointment and sorrow in our lives. We might question our faith, wondering why evil is allowed to happen or feel that God is distant. Do we become bitter or do we find strength in God to move on? Can we take refuge in him?

'A Refuge for my Heart' takes us into the lives of Naomi, Ruth, Joseph, Leah and David, to discover how they dealt with circumstances outside their power and understanding. We see how the situations they had to face - loss, childlessness, rejection, loneliness - are still common today, and shows us what God's protection really means. We learn that taking refuge in him is essential to our spiritual well being.
