Daily Assurance in the Face of Lifes Hardest Struggles

In times of hardship, its easy to lose sight of Gods purpose, goodness, and love. 90 Days of Gods Goodness helps disperse the foglittle by little, discovery by discovery, day by day. Through these thoughtful, inspiring devotional readings, bestselling author Randy Alcorn brings clarity to the question of Gods goodness.
For anyone whos ever suffered, or shared in a loved ones suffering…or for anyone whos ever been painfully distressed by the prevalent evil in this world…90 Days of Gods Goodness opens a wide door to healing and the reassurance of a God whose love we can count on and always turn to.

Randy Alcorn's deep and personal insight in 90 Days of God's Goodness: Daily Reflections that Shine on Personal Darkness gives readers a new perspective on seeing God's goodness in a world that is full of pain and suffering. When trials arise, many people lose sight of the hope they have in Christ and, without the proper foundation, their faith is shaken.
Through 90 daily reflections, Randy helps readers look at life from an accurate point of view. He does not make light of the fact that suffering hurts and loss breaks our hearts, but he does remind us that God sees us through and works in our lives even during such darkness. Each daily reflection begins with a passage of Scripture that goes directly with the day's topic, followed by personal examples from the lives of everyday people or from Randys own life, thoughtfully chosen to parallel the Scripture passage and make readers really think about the daily message. Randy then closes each with a personal prayer that he invites readers to mold to their individual situation.
Randy Alcorn writes with a humble and very easy-to-read style, making sometimes complex issues more accessible. Having recently taken a course on contemporary Christian thought, Randys approach to the seemingly conflicting existence of Gods goodness and the presence of evil helped me to see what I had been learning applied to real life situations, not just hypothetical circumstances. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has experienced painwhich is pretty much everyone, if were honestor anyone who has seen someone else question the goodness of God in light of lifes struggles.
