Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts

January 11, 2013 1 comment

Trusting GodTrusting God: Even When Life Hurts by Jerry Bridges is a MUST read if you are hurting, but even if “hurting” is not a label you would pin on yourself right now, it’s still a book you should read.

By exploring God’s Sovereignty, God’s Wisdom, and God’s Love, Bridges not only enables you to understand and know God better, he also provides you with the tools to maintain your house of faith when you go through pain and suffering.

“Why did God let this happen?” is a question Bridges explores in great detail.  His answers are insightful and full of Scripture.  I’ve always believed God is in control at all times and in all ways, but after reading this book, I’ve added a new word to that concept–God’s loving control.

Shall I Ever Fear? Shall I Ever Despair?

Shall I ever fear?

Shall I ever despair?

Shall I ever sorrow?

wrapped in a
warm cocoon
of Your ever-
binding
love,

shrouded in the
certainty
of Your ever-
abiding
presence,

embraced with the
knowledge
of Your never-
ending
grace.

–Luana Ehrlich
