"What in the world is God up to?" It's a question we all sometimes ask, especially in times of discouragement, suffering, and sorrow--when it's not as easy to see God's involvement in our lives. Yet, His hand is always there, enlisting every circumstance, relationship, event, and choice we make to help transform us to the image of Jesus, His Son. "And like the artisans of old," writes Fran Sciacca, "God's methods necessitate pain, the removal of what we cling to, and great amounts of time and patience." In this book you'll see how God shaped the lives of a variety of biblical figures. Ideal for personal or small-group study, this book will help you discern and embrace what God is doing in your life. And while the process may prove difficult and painful, it is the only pathway to spiritual growth of the most profound kind.
