"Life is hard right now, and I just don't know what to do."
When life is hardreally hardwe often spend all our time pleading, begging, yelling, refusing, and questioning. While none of these things are necessarily unusual, they are missing the ultimate point. When life is hard, when things get ugly, when all hope seems to be lost… that is when we are able to display the superiority of God by leaning on His promises and truths.
Working his way through five questions we've all had run through our heads, trusted pastor James MacDonald helps us understand what we should do in the midst of trial:
- What kind of trial am I dealing with, and is God involved in it?
- Why am I experiencing trial?
- What should I do in the midst of trial?
- Are Gods purposes really being fulfilled in this?
- Why won't this trial go away?
God told us to expect trials, so dont be surprised when they come. Grow when they come. Find hope when they come.

pamiSebastian, FLAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5great...encouraging...September 3, 2013pamiSebastian, FLAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I read this when I was going through a rough sickness. He made me think I am not the only one and that God has a reason for all this and I know He does cause all things to work together for good to those that love Him. It brought me up out of the despair I was in and put me back on the road to joy and peace even in the middle of my trials. It was so good I just bought it for a friend going through a surgery that was not successful and another friend just read it who is going through depression. It has made us all come back to our Lord and Savior who loves us and will continue to walk with us no matter what we are going through. I will continue to recommend this book.

The author explains and illustrates Scripture in a way that very few have done. Such illustrations are enhanced by his quoting personal experiences. The book gives comfort and hope to all. It should be on everyone's bookshelf.

Reading the corresponding chapter of the book prior to seeing the DVD and group discussion enhances the study. The book is very well written and one that we can all relate to. We all face times of trial.
Q: Is this a workbook, like for a Bible study, or a stand-alone book?
This is a stand-alone book. It does include questions for Bible study, but doesn't provide space to write.
