Publisher's Description

“Why do bad things happen?” 
“God, I don’t understand!” 
 
Heartbreak and loss happen to us all. On New Year’s Day, at the age of thirty-seven, Karen Jensen’s husband died suddenly in his bed, leaving her alone to raise two grieving boys and pastor a bewildered congregation.
 
Despite her strong faith and love for God, she had some serious questions.
Has tragedy shaken the foundation of your life? Have you been blindsided by an event you never expected to face? What should we do when we’re going through the dark places in life?
 
…when we’ve lost everything?
…when we’re in pain?
…when we’re wondering why?  
 
With a mix of sharp insight and warm optimism, Karen skillfully combines experience and scripture to guide you through the land mines of doubt and confusion that come with loss. She then provides solid principles for moving forward past the pain and into a brighter future.

    Awful things happen. Haven't you cried out, "Why, God, why?"

    Karen has written this book from her own experience to help those in painful situations. She knows that God will bring you through the hard times. He wants to heal your broken heart and help you embrace a bright future.

    Karen's husband died suddenly at age thirty-seven. She asked God serious questions and encourages you to do the same. Be honest with God, she advises.

    What is crucial, Karen writes, is what you do after you've asked the questions. That is the main purpose of her book - to help you find out what to do after you've asked the questions.

    She helps you understand how to control and replace your thoughts, to relax in God's hold on you, to trust God's plan for your life, to know that others are praying for you, to trust in an unchanging God, to understand the reason evil things happen, to walk in the vision the Bible has for your life, be assured your place in heaven is secure, and that God's love will never fail.

    She uses biblical stories and those from people she knows to illustrate the truths she promotes. At the end of each chapter Karen has included a "Now Engage" section with Scripture and affirmations related to the truth in it. These are great for meditation and memorization.

    Karen writes from a charismatic viewpoint that includes the following: "It is never His will for people to be sick. It is always His will to heal us." "God doesn't cause sickness or any other trial or trouble." (89) She fails to address Paul's so called thorn in the flesh, nor does she write about God disciplining those He loves and how He might do that. Because of those omissions, I rate the book four stars, not five.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
