From bestselling author Elizabeth George (nearly 4 million books sold) comes a book born of her desire
to help others through difficult times. Finding God's Path Through Your Trials acknowledges the hard times we all
face and reveals how people can "count it all joy," including:
- understanding trials are not punishment
- realizing God's grace is sufficient to get them through trials
- knowing the benefits brought by trials-patience, endurance, empathy
- experiencing deeper faith as they depend on God through trials
- trusting God to use everything for His glory
Emphasizing God is always with them and will help them every step of the way, Elizabeth
reminds readers they will not be given trials they cannot bear without including a way of escape. She encourages
people to turn to Jesus, where they will find hope, joy, and meaning in the journey, no matter how bumpy it seems.
Emphasizing God is always with them and will help them every step of the way, Elizabeth reminds readers they will not be given trials they cannot bear without including a way of escape. She encourages people to turn to Jesus, where they will find hope, joy, and meaning in the journey, no matter how bumpy it seems.
George divides her book into five sections, labeling them by the different qualities that can be gained by learning to analyze a trial from a biblical standpoint. The conversational style she maintains throughout her writing creates a visitation environment that allows the reader to be comfortable and relate to Georges personal experiences. Her background also enhances her understanding. Elizabeth George has written several books, including A Woman After Gods Own Heart and Loving God with All Your Mind. She is also a renowned speaker at many Christian womens functions, her ministry years totaling more than 30.
The five sections of Georges book correlate with five of the qualities she believes godly women possess. Becoming a joyful, stable, mature, mighty, and enduring woman is accomplished, according to George, by having faith through trials and overcoming them. She uses a different Bible verse to accompany each section, but she constantly returns to her first reference, James 1:2, Count it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials. George makes it clear that choosing to be joyful about lifes trials, along with extensive prayer, is paramount to overcoming problems and growing spiritually.
Overall, George presents some much needed, but seldom discussed material. Her examples relate to the reader in more personal way, allowing women to know that she truly understands. Her need to include steps toward improvement at the end of every section, though, may cause some women to be overwhelmed, especially if they already have overloaded daily agendas. Nevertheless, this book could still be recommended for a small group womens Bible study. Georges storytelling and her testimony allow a lot of room for discussion and sharing of ideas.
