rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5AMAZING READFebruary 7, 2019rkfallQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Relating much with this author in different ways, this book has been beyond words to me, an off the chart work. Like Corrie Ten Boom and Ruth Myers, Elisabeth Elliot shows the power of our God displayed in His creation for His glory. She has taught me, blessed me, and stretched me. The Truth she shared was right on target. She has given some amazing challenges that I kept pausing while reading with a "HUMPH!" I will treasure this book and already have it on my calendar to read it again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Miriam Jacob5 Stars Out Of 5Suffering Is Never for NothingFebruary 6, 2019Miriam JacobQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Suffering Is Never For Nothing" by Elisabeth Elliot teaches us that suffering always has a loving purpose. When trials and troubles come our way, we know the One who knows why. Suffering is a mystery that we cannot plumb. Through the deepest sufferings come the deepest lessons. We trust the One who knows to lead us through the dark into the light. Suffering and love are inexplicably and inextricably linked. God's love for us sent His Son, Jesus to die for our sins on the cross to give us eternal life. Jesus carried our sins, griefs and sufferings on the cross. We don't have to carry the heavy burdens ourselves. Some burdens are so heavy that we will sink under its weight. That's why Jesus carried our burdens for us. Christ died for our sins and won victory for us. We can bear suffering because we trust God to bring amazing good out of it. "Suffering Is Never For Nothing."
Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5What she's learned about sufferingJanuary 28, 2019Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Suffering Is Never for Nothing" is lightly edited from a talk that Elizabeth Elliott gave at a conference. She talked about some of the things she has suffered through and what she's learned about suffering from those experiences. The overall idea is that we more deeply come to know God through suffering and learn to depend on Him and His love and sovereignty. The focus was not so much on detailed theology as it was advice on how to get through suffering. Overall, I'd recommend this book.
I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
