Do you want the prickly, uncomfortable thorn in your flesh to go away?
R.T. Kendall wants you to know that God gives you thorns for your benefit. Most people think of this discomfort as a physical pain, but Kendall explains how God gets your attention through loneliness, a handicap or disability, an enemy, an unhappy marriage, personality problem, and more.
Kendall helps you understand how God's grace is sufficient as he answers questions like:
What are the advantages to loneliness? Why does God use an enemy to refine you? How can a handicap or disability offer you the most dazzling reward in heaven? What did Abraham and Moses learn from experiencing unhappy living conditions?Believe that your thorn in the flesh is for your good, and that it is the best thing that will ever happen to you-next to your conversion and anointing. It is time for believers to accept that God has allowed lifes splinters for a victorious purpose of humility and not taking life too seriously. Denial and repression will not change a thing, but knowing and recognizing Gods love will impact lives and turn negative attitudes into positive rewards.

vanessa waltersRed Cloud, Neb.Age: 55-65Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5very disappointed with THIS bookSeptember 19, 2012vanessa waltersRed Cloud, Neb.Age: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I had read Dr. Kendall's books on forgiveness, Joseph, jealousy, being thankful. Those books I would heartily recommend to anyone. This book, I do NOT. The chapter on 'unhappy marriages' made me very sad, upset and angry. Mine was a verbal/emotionally abusive marriage, that lasted 28 years, until I left him and got a divorce. I did not, nor do I consider an abusive marriage a 'thorn in the flesh' to bring you to a deeper life with God. It was, at best misery, at worst, life that made me want to kill myself, end it all; when I wasnt being threatened to be killed by him! I would say, that Dr. Kendall has had NO experience with domestic violence victims/survivors of domestic violence. I am still forgiving God (subject of one of his books), for 'allowing' my ex to do and say what he did. I am still dealing with the wounds my ex inflicted on my spirit, my feelings and my mind. The rest of the book was worthwhile reading.
