I never thought I’d write a book. But then again, I never thought that life could be so full and so painful in my adult life.
We can all say, “I never thought _________.” Life throws us a bunch of curve balls. Suffering happens. Pain happens, and a lot of times we don’t know how to deal with the pain and suffering. I know that I don’t. I still have a lot of unanswered questions than I do answers.
However, through all of this LIFE, I learned about Jesus. I learned about the realness of the Gospel. I learned about it’s value for the suffering and the hurting. It didn’t take my pain away and it doesn’t make my days easier, but it gave me hope for THIS not being it.
“We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul…” Hebrews 6:19
“For not we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.” I Corinthians 13:12
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.” Psalm 16:5
I write more about how Sunday School at my kitchen table taught me the Gospel that I thought that I already knew in my book Seeing a Faint Glimpse of Glory. My hope is that this book will be honest, forthright, loving and full of Jesus. My desire is for those who are walking through suffering and grief will see the hope and comfort that Jesus gives to all of us.
You can pre-order a copy of the book from my Kickstarter and get it before it hits Amazon!
