There is hope after life falls apart.
A single phone call can change your life.
There’s been an accident.
You have cancer.
The company’s downsizing.
Your spouse wants out.
All of a sudden everything spins out of control.
At some point, we’ve all felt painful loss, bitter disappointment, embarrassing failure, unthinkable betrayal, and the seeming randomness of suffering. Some of us have faced death. Sometimes it all happens at once. And we have quietly wondered (or maybe even screamed), “Why is this happening to me? Where is God in all of this?”
The answer may surprise you.
With sincere sympathy and ready encouragement, Bruce W. Martin takes you through a grieving process that will help you reconcile your deep suffering with your beliefs about God. A unique and compassionate take on the age-old question of suffering, this book is for anyone who has experienced life-shattering pain.
Life is a roller coaster and we do not know what twist, turn or fall is coming next. Finding God in life roller coasters is often hard, often times you run the other way. But during the storm are the times that we need to remember that He is there and his shoulder is always there for us.
The pain that Bruce Martin and his friends and family have endured is awful. Bruce however finds simple verses and truth in finding your way to Him. Bruce takes us through the pain that he endures and tells the honest truth about what he is feeling and that helps the reader really understand what is going on and understand that we can find hope in the pain.
If you are need of comfort for something difficult that you are going through Desperate for Hope is the perfect book for you. If you are on that roller coaster of life we often search for something bigger, hope to get through the storm and search for the truth. Bruce helped me see a greater truth in a few things I am struggling with.
This is a beautifully written story that shows us just how much God loves each and every one of us. This would make a perfect gift for anyone.
