Selections from the writings of Job, the Psalms, and other scriptures provide comfort in times of pain, confusion, and chaos; and give insight, resolution, and strength through the wilderness seasons. Heartrending stories of the loss of a newborn, the devastating news of a debilitating disease, and shipwreck reveal how the Lord turns pain, turmoil, and sorrow into personal growth, purpose, and compassion for others.
Inspirational quotes from classic devotional writers Thomas a’ Kempis, Martin Luther, John Bunyan, Hannah Whitehall Smith, and other well-known writers, including, A. W. Tozer, Brennan Manning, C.S. Lewis, and Oswald Chambers inspire strength and encouragement in times of trauma, grief and uncertainty.
