The following speaks of Shelley’s heart toward the hurting.
“My heart continues to be heavy for all those grieving today across our country. I don’t believe it was a coincidence that I published a book this past week called, “Trusting God When Bad Things Happen.” And even before the tragedy in Connecticut, I felt led to offer it free on Smashwords this month.
Trusting God In The Midst of the “Storms” of Life
When bad things happen, what is your reaction? Do you trust God even when you don’t understand?
There was a dark season in my life when it literally felt like an earthquake had occurred. Everything in my life seemed to be falling apart…my family, my finances, our church. And I asked God the simple question, “Why?” This book is the result of my own search for answers. In the end, God gave me illustrations that I will share with you and brought healing to my heart and my distorted view of Him. I was able to trust Him again, even though my circumstances had not changed.
I pray that God uses this short eBook to deeply impact you as well. I have included questions for reflection for you to go through individually or as a group.
“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I (Jesus) have overcome the world!” – John 16:33
