alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5May 17, 2014alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4We have all been there. In a place where we cannot find joy or peace in our lives. Where a heavy darkness descends on our shoulders and weights us down.
When the Darkness will not Lift is a book designed to help people move through this season of darkness. While waiting for the Lord to move in our lives, the author encourages us to walk closer with God. To cling to Him as your life line. He also encourages the reader to be actively involved in helping God's kingdom in whatever way He directs you. Helping others always takes our mind off our own problems.
He also includes a large amount scripture that the reader can refer to.
I know that some people will expect more from this author, but in all honesty when you are in this type of season, a smaller book is less overwhelming.
The book itself is only 79 pages of actual text, with the introduction being 22 pages long. The price is not too bad if you can find the book on sale.
Although when I read this book I was not going through this type of season, I still found it to be an encouraging book.

For the price I was expecting more. The book is very small with larger print so there is not much here to give it value for the cost.
