* Do you often feel consumed by financial, relational, or spiritual burdens? What if you allowed yourself to be overwhelmed by God instead? Pastor Mays invites you to accept God's promise of abundant life---not one that's free from trouble, but filled with peace, forgiveness, and love no matter your circumstances. Includes end-of-chapter discussion questions. 224 pages, softcover from Baker.
Are the bills stacking up while your bank account dwindles? Is your marriage or your singleness a source of heartbreak? Are you filled with anxiety because of health issues? Do you sometimes feel like you're drowning and God is nowhere to be found? Do you wonder, What in the world am I going to do? How am I going to make it?
Trials roll in like waves, one after another, and threaten to knock you off your feet. But instead of trying to stand strong against your problems, maybe the answer is to be swept away--not by your troubles, but by God. Overwhelmed by God and Not Your Troubles is an invitation to rest and to fall into God's love, goodness, grace, and forgiveness. Lift your tired eyes from the crushing trials that lead you to despair, and fix your eyes on the awesome power and mercy of the God who is greater. You will experience the peace, contentment, and joy that can only be found in Christ as you face your setbacks and heartaches with renewed hope and strength from the Spirit.
