By sharing personal experiences, the author shows how responding to loss can be a way to greater depth, compassion, joy, and appreciation of simple blessings....
Here is practical help for understanding and following God’s will for your life. “God has a plan for our lives,” but what does that mean in practical terms? How do we know God’s will for important life decisions, like who to marry, what job to take, what church to join? How can we be free if God has a perfect plan for us? Does suffering mean we are off track? How exactly does God speak? Author Jerry Sittser explores these questions and offers a biblically based approach that is truly liberating.
"Excellent book that takes us through the journey of gaining an understanding of God's will from so many dimensions"
Twenty years ago, Jerry Sittser lost his daughter, wife, and mother in a car accident. He chronicled that tragic experience in A Grace Disguised, a book that has become a classic on the topic of grief and loss.
Now he asks: How do we live meaningfully, even fruitfully, in this world and at the same time long for heaven? How do we respond to the paradox of being a new creature in Christ even though we don’t always feel or act like one? How can we trust God is involved in our story when our circumstances seem to say he isn’t?
A beloved husband dies of cancer. A child is kidnapped. A family is shattered by a fatal car accident. We pray for peace and protection in a world that seems to be falling apart. Often we experience or hear about spectacular answers to prayer. But where is God when the cry of our hearts seems to be answered with silence?
