Genre: Christian Living
Life is unfair. Bad things happen to good people. Not all dreams come true. We lose people. We fail people. And when we encounter the inevitable struggles of life, we may be tempted to ask God Why me? as we try to reconcile our pain with God’s promises. But a far more helpful and life-enriching question for us to ask God is What are you trying to teach me in this? Tackling ten common struggles, such as isolation, fear, rejection, failure, insecurity, temptation, and more, Landra Young Hughes shows you how to have peace even when life doesn’t make sense. Speaking with great empathy born from her own losses and years in ministry, Hughes doesn’t suggest you “get over” your hard times. Instead, she helps you recognize that, while you will always live in a broken world this side of heaven, your pain has much to teach you about God and yourself. With her empathetic help, you’ll discover how to grow through grief and thrive despite adversity.

This book could not come at a better time as I struggled wondering where God was during a recent mission trip to Africa with a team who had poor attitudes. God was right there with me, although at times it did not feel like it. He does not want us to struggle, but to learn to grow and become fully dependent on Him. We are all broken and live in a broken world; however, we all have a lot to learn, that God will never leave us or forsake us.
The author shares her personal stories and covers everyday struggles that we all face: from fear to rejection to insecurity. We can not just “get over” those issues but lay those at His feet daily.
