Life can hurt deeply! But who do we turn to in such times of darkness and adversity? It might be through times of sorrow, bereavement, fear, anxiety or depression that you grow closest to God. These twelve highly personal accounts written by best-selling author Irene Howat tell of finding comfort through disabling illness, marital betrayal, a child murdered, a spouse imprisoned, difficult working situations and loneliness. All of these people in their difficult days have felt the hand of God, who is faithful and true to His Word and His people, rest upon them.
Irene Howat is an author and ghost–writer for many different Christian biographies as well as multiple children’s books and biographies. Her writing skills have gained her an award from the Australian book trade and a reputation as a reliable writer for young children.
Irene Howat has gathered together in her usual sensitive way, twelve honest, moving experiences of ordinary men and women who have walked in the shadows of life who has walked in the shadows of life and have felt the reassuring hand of the Man from Galilee.
One after another, they share how God spoke to them through their regular reading of his Word, as particular verses of Scripture took on a new reality for them. A lesson to us all perhaps, that it is the habits of listening to God established in our everyday routines that enable us to hear his voice clearly when we are in greatest need.
I think there is a kind of 'undertow' one feels when reading through this book; one feels caught by a quiet assurance that all we've heard about God's strong grace is true.
