A Bend in the Road: Experiencing God When Your World Caves In
Bargain Book Copy
It may be the loss of a job. The betrayal of a spouse. The death of a child. Or, as in the case of David Jeremiah, a diagnosis of life-threatening disease. When your world falls apart without warning, where is God? Less than a heartbeat away, according to Dr. David Jeremiah. When life suddenly turns upside down, there, in the midst of our trials and in the center of our pain, is God - comforting, guiding, encouraging, teaching, sustaining. In this perceptive and deeply personal book, Dr. Jeremiah draws from the beautiful poetry and deep truths of the Psalms - passages that gave him comfort and strength on his journey into the unknown. As he identified the traumatic events that inspired the writing of the ten well-loved psalms included in these pages, Dr. Jeremiah found his focus changing: Instead of asking "Why?" he began to ask "What, O Lord? What do you have to teach me? What would you have me do?" Interwoven with his own reflections and insights are the inspiring real-life stories of other men and women who have faced unexpected adversity - and found that God's grace truly is sufficient for every need.
