When life is hard, really hard, we often spend all our time pleading, begging, yelling, refusing, and questioning. While none of these things are necessarily unusual, they are missing the ultimate point. When life is hard, when things get ugly, when all hope seems to be lost... that is when we are able to display the superiority of the life lived in God.
It is in those moments of despair, when we question what is happening, when we don't know what to do, when some trials never seem to end, that we can lean most heavily on God's promises and truths.
Working his way through five questions we've all had run through our heads, trusted pastor James MacDonald helps us understand what we should do now. We begin the journey by looking at different types of "trials," figuring out exactly what we're dealing with, and recognizing that God certainly knows. Second, the obvious question: "Why?" God sees us going through trials and we long for two things: for them to be over and to know why they happened in the first place. Next, we need to know what to do with these trials when they come (and they will most certainly come). Fourth, we have all wondered it, can trials be refused? Are God's purposes really being fulfilled in the midst of this trying time? And lastly, God reveals Himself to us through these trials...and sometimes, they just don't ever end. Why doesn't this trial go away?
God told us to expect trials--don't be surprised when they come. Grow when they come. Find hope when they come.

He made me think I am not the only one and that God has a reason for all this and I know He does cause all things to work together for good to those that love Him. It brought me up out of the despair I was in and put me back on the road to joy and peace even in the middle of my trials. It was so good I just bought it for a friend going through a surgery that was not successful and another friend just read it who is going through depression. It has made us all come back to our Lord and Savior who loves us and will continue to walk with us no matter what we are going through. I will continue to recommend this book.

Q: Is this a workbook, like for a Bible study, or a stand-alone book?
This is a stand-alone book. It does include questions for Bible study, but doesn't provide space to write.
