Publisher's Summary

Pain is not the enemy! Injustice. Rejection. Loneliness. Loss. Discipline. Failure. Death. They are life’s “inevitables”—and the events we fear the most, say authors Paul Meier and David Henderson. Yet we often miss the treasures beyond these inevitable events because we’re too busy trying to avoid pain. Though relieving suffering is a worthwhile pursuit—and one the authors have devoted their lives to—their clinical practice, personal experiences, and biblical studies have convinced them that “no suffering” is not the goal. Seeking and embracing God’s purposes for pain is. But we can only do this by casting our hurts in a whole new light. What if, instead of chasing after a pain-free existence, we saw adversity as an ally? A temporary companion who leads us away from danger and toward healing? A trainer who pushes us through to the next level of growth? In this penetrating look at the seven universal struggles of life, Meier and Henderson show us how to not only go through them but grow through them. Their hard-earned wisdom will assure us that beyond the brokenness and pain is where we will find that secret storehouse of meaning—the place where our fear of the dark gives way to the light of God’s purposes.

Changed my view on my chronic back pain

When you get a life changing diagnosis your life stops. Your world is no longer a happy place or so I thought. This book helped me realize God has a purpose for my pain. A testimony of gratitude to Jesus for healing me in a new way. i was no longer focused on the why me but the why not me and I can honestly say my life really did change after reading this.
