This book is a BLESSING! I was completely encouraged and uplifted by Randy Alcorn's writings. You may remember I just finished reviewing "If God is Good" also by Randy Alcorn and I thought it was amazing but it was somewhat heavy material and LARGE. So when I got this book I was completely excited that it was basically a condensed version of the other book. This is a book that I can completely give to anyone who is struggling to see God in the "midst of suffering." It can be so difficult to see God in times of trials and pain but what this book points out so well is that is when we can see God most clearly if we just simply look for Him. We as humans cannot understand Him or how or why He does what He does. But we can have the faith and the confidence that God IS GOOD.
Right now we're uncertain what God has for our future. It can sometimes seem as though God is silent and not doing anything in our lives. My extended family is currently going through some major heartaches. Loved ones around us have lost loved ones. Reading this book is such a blessing and a reminder that although what we see may be dark and ugly, it's all part of a master painting that will completely display God's glory and God's goodness. We just have to wait to see the whole picture.
