Where was God when ____? How could God allow ____? Why?”
These are the questions that flood our hearts and minds when the unimaginable happens. When things go horribly wrong and the world seems to be unraveling, how do you believe in God’s goodness? How do you cling to hope?
Chad Veach directs readers away from clichéd Sunday school answers that fail to offer real comfort or provide faith-building insights. Instead, he draws from God’s promises in the Bible and from the story of his own daughter’s diagnosis of a devastating and debilitating disease to reveal simple, purposeful steps for dealing with pain. Resting in God’s love, remembering his past faithfulness, and realizing the distinction between having faith and clinging to hope are just some of these steps.
Veach reminds us that because we know who God is, we know there is hope.
My thoughts: Chad Veach discusses and begs the questions we all have during the midst of difficult life circumstances and questions. This book is good a reminder of God's faithfulness and his character. The author makes some good points about the Bible and his own story as he has gone through some difficult stuff with his own family life. He makes great points in putting your hope in the Lord and not in people. This book is practical and his advice was good. I give this book 4/5 stars because it wasn't something I had heard before. He re-iterated some good solid truths, but I appreciated his honesty about his own life. Thank you to Thomas Nelson for providing me a complimentary copy for review purposes only.
