5 Stars Out Of 5

God is in the Small Stuff for Changing Times (Let God Help You Thrive in a Difficult World) by Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz was a very encouraging book for me.
Even with all the stress of the world (wars, economic difficulties, political problems, and natural disasters), we know we can rely on God. He is here with us. No matter how big or small our problems are God will help us to get through them.
The book is based on the book of James in the Bible. During the first century people were facing some of the same problems we do today such as economic difficulties, famine, problems with powerful people, and the feeling that God wasn't noticing them. Some of the advice James gives us is: appreciate your trials, ask for wisdom, help others, remain loving, trust God for all things, remain faithful to God, and learn to pray with power.
At the end of each chapter there are helpful comments for the changing times and a Bible verse taken mostly from the New International Version.
