Publisher's Description

"Sometimes He wrings the worship from our hearts."
 
There are times when worship overflows easily and effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. Yet, there are other times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing left to offer. We are tired, or thirsty, or imprisoned in our own chains through our own devices, or caught in the waves of a tumultuous sea. This is when God shows us His steadfast love.
 
He wraps His eternally powerful, ultimately creative, nail-scarred hands around our hearts and squeezes with appropriate might—yielding an honest plea for Him to save us and deliver us from our circumstances, fears, and self control. And He does. He initiates with His steadfast love, and responds with the same.
 
 Walk with Lauren as she shares what she has learned of the steadfast love of the Lord.

Author Bio

Lauren Chandler is a wife and mother of three. Her husband, Matt Chandler, serves as the lead teaching pastor at The Village Church in Dallas, Texas. Lauren is passionate about writing, music and leading worship, not only at The Village Church, but also for groups across the country. The Lord has taken Matt and Lauren on a challenging journey, beginning with the November 2009 discovery of a malignant brain tumor in Matt. The Lord has been infinitely merciful to provide peace and comfort in uncertainty, and joy in times of victory and healing. Lauren and her family have been given a deeper trust in clinging to the Lord and his cross during this appointed season of valleys and storms.

Editorial Reviews

I had the privilege to get to know and love Lauren Chandler at the height of the season when God was wringing worship from her heart. I saw her cling to Him for dear life and resolve to trust Him amid terrifying circumstances. I also saw the very worship she describes in these pages surface in exquisite beauty. I am deeply grateful God put her pen to the page to share with us what He's shown her and taught her in Psalm 107. Lauren has encountered the steadfast love of God vividly and powerfully. Within these pages, we are invited to do the same. Lauren's tremendous gifting is obvious from first to last. She devours the Scriptures and makes us hungry for them, too. This is a gorgeous book. For all our sakes, I hope and trust it won't be her last.
—Beth Moore

The steadfast love of God is a powerful balm for our souls, whether in the mundane details of daily life or in the deepest valleys through which we may be required to walk. I've watched as Lauren Chandler has clung to His faithfulness, goodness, and love in the midst of desperate places and have witnessed the sweet fruit as she has tethered her heart to the truth about His character and ways. Regardless of where you may find yourself in this season, Steadfast Love will be a means of sweet encouragement and grace.
—Nancy Leigh DeMoss

"You can hear it in Lauren’s words in these pages you’re holding in your own hand, even as you hear the thunder of your own rising waves, what she knows from riding out her own tsunami: Wisdom isn’t a function of considering great amounts of knowledge— it’s the wise who continually consider the great, steadfast love of God."

-Ann Voskamp

    If you take a peek at Psalm 107, you'll see some vivid images. There are dry and weary people trekking across a desert and never arriving at their destination. There are heavily chained prisoners, oppressed by grinding labor in a dungeon of darkness. There are those who are dying amid destroyed lives. There are a bunch of terrified sailors reeling across the deck of their ship in the middle of a wild storm.

    When I'd read this Psalm before, I fixated on these terrible circumstances, and I missed the whole point.

    The sailors are scared out of their skin, they're soaked with salt spray that's flung up from waves they can't command. Yet... they cry to the Lord in their distress, and He brings them into safe haven. The prisoners groan and despair, yet when they call out for redemption they find it. The one at the gates of death asks for new life, and receives it from the hand of God. The desert wanderer asks for a good end to the journey, and he comes into the safe city of God.

    The point is that all of them find all they need when they seek it in Him. Mostly, what they find is steadfast love. That's what Lauren Chandler wants us to see, whether we have storm or calm outside the window, whether we're inside hospital walls or at our own homes.

    Psalm 107 is a particularly precious portion of Scripture for Lauren, and she moves through it slowly in these chapters, pausing often to reflect. She looks long and carefully at the metaphors- barren places and safe cities, powerful waves and sudden peace, chains and freedom, the taste of death and the rush of life. She tells us stories from her days to show us what she's learned, and she shares her reasons for confidence and hope.

    And I can't think of anybody who doesn't need this message.

    I thank B&H Publishing for providing my review copy, in exchange for an honest opinion.

    Four words link the heart to the anchor of Gods steadfast love;

    Four words acknowledge Gods goodness in the midst of difficulty:

    No matter what happens.

    Thanksgiving no matter what happens was the challenge facing Lauren Chandler during days in the desert, in the crucible of her husbands cancer, riding the daily waves of parenting and ministry. Gratitude is a current that runs through Steadfast Love, Laurens lifeline to her readers.

    A navigational map as well as a ships log, the truth of Psalm 107 fills the sails of a tale that, like the psalm, is also about worship in the desert, a chain-shattering God, the affliction that results from faithless foolishness, and finding sea legs on a storm-tossed ship. Using Scripture to illuminate Scripture, Lauren traces the dots from Psalm 107 to passages as diverse as Israels wilderness wanderings, the tale of a prophet who marries a prostitute, and Jesus dealings with a thirsty woman, demonstrating the richness and depth, the commitment and jealous devotion of hesed, the Hebrew word for Gods steadfast love.

    Another current running through Steadfast Love is the absolute necessity of community among those who believingly follow Christ. Lauren speaks of the faithful wounds of a friend who valued my good more than she valued her standing with me. She relates how a web of relationships in a community made God tangible . . . put flesh on the unseen.

    Like the psalmist, we will find hope in the process of praising God for His continual deliverance and in remembering His response to our neediness. Let them thank the Lord for His steadfast love, for His wondrous works to the children of man! is the theme of this thorough study of Gods Word, and it is Lauren Chandlers testimony a high view of God that trusts His leading and awaits His return.

    What do you do when life suddenly, without warning takes a 180?

    Do you give in to despair?

    Do you stand up and fight?

    This is not just a memoir, but the author also shows us and teaches us that regardless where you find yourself that God is our Steadfast Love.

    This book is 208 pages in length and divided into 5 parts with a total of 12 chapters.

    Part One: A Call to Worship (Psalm 107:1-3)

    Part Two: The Desert (Psalm 107:4-9)

    Part Three: Chains (Psalm 107:10-16)

    Part Four: Folly (Psalm 107:17-22)

    Part Five: The Storm (Psalm 107:23-43)

    This is a beautifully written book and it is evident that is comes from the heart. The author reveals her raw emotions and lays them out for everyone to see in hopes that it might help someone when they face a storm. She takes the reader one step further in showing them how to hold on to God's love not just through her personal experience, but backed up on scriptural principles. Most would think that because this is written by a female then it is directed to the female audience and they would be wrong. She points out principles that can be applied to your life regardless of your gender. This is a book that I will keep on my shelf and use as a reference again and again, whether I am facing a storm or if I can use it to help someone else facing a storm.

    I would recommend this book to anyone.
