When Suffering Is Redemptive Stories of How Anguish & Pain Accomplish Gods Mission

$14.99
When Suffering is Redemptive offers hope when life is difficult. The eight stories of this book do not seek to explain the "why" of suffering but rather the present ways that God transforms and redeems suffering, particularly how suffering leads to ministry opportunities. Though the stories are personal and sometimes difficult to tell, the authors are transparent with their struggles and honest in their questions. Yet they have not lost sight of Christ and his purpose for their lives. This book will challenge readers to develop a richer sense of God's sustaining grace in the midst of suffering and disability, hopefully resulting in the compassionate involvement of church ministries with those who are in the trenches of their own personal pain or struggles. Along with the personal stories, this book includes discussion questions and suggested resources at the end of each chapter.

Whether our hurt is physical, emotional, or mental, in the end it is all the same - painful. Pain is a gift; not a thought we often have, but without pain we would never know when to move our hand from a hot stove or be able to empathize with friends and family that are going through so much. This gift book helps us to better understand pain and how to handle it in our daily lives. As a gift for someone going through chemotherapy or a couple that lost a child, this book allows them to experience the pain that they are feeling without guilt or regret - but instead as the gift it truly is.

WHO ARE YOU?

For respected New Testament scholar Klyne Snodgrass, this is the most important question a person can ask--the question from which everything else in life flows. Other questions follow: What made you who you are? Who gets to say who you are? And--perhaps most vital--Who does God say you are?

In this book Snodgrass offers wise guidance to all who are wrestling with such universal human questions. He examines nine factors--including one's body, personal history, commitments, and boundaries--that shape human identity, and he expertly draws out what the Bible tells us about who God says we are, how we fit within God's purposes, and how our God-given identity can and must impact the way we live our lives.

In times of trouble and suffering, we cry out to God . . . but sometimes it feels like he doesn’t hear. Has he abandoned us just when we need him most? In this new book, scholar, author, and apologist Gary Habermas walks us through what the Bible has to say about suffering and where we can find God in our own times of sorrow and disappointment, and he shares heartfelt personal insights from his own experiences. "Why Is God Ignoring Me?" gives us the freedom to ask our tough questions . . . And the wisdom to find the answers.

Why would a loving and powerful God allow so much pain and suffering? In WHY SUFFERING? Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale carefully walk you through a variety of responses that considered together provide a clear, comprehensive, and convincing answer. Responses like: Where there is the possibility of love, there has to be the reality of freedom, and therefore the possibility of pain. Wishing God had made a different world is to wish yourself out of existence. In comparison with other world religions, the Christian response is highly distinctive.
Here is a book written with great respect for the complexity of the issue, recognizing that some who read it will be in the trenches of deep suffering themselves and others questioning the very existence of a loving God. WHY SUFFERING? provides an answer to the problem of pain and suffering with emotional sensitivity and intellectual integrity.

As our use of technology has increased, our communication skills have decreased. We text when we should talk. We tweet firings and breakups. Technology creates the illusion of being in touch, but we lose the deeper meaning conveyed by body language, facial expression, and tone of voice. What we need are real, face-to-face conversations. Have we lost that art?

He shows readers how to build strong relationships and teaches tried-and-true methods to navigate the muddy waters of tough conversations. Readers learn to be better listeners, give and receive genuine feedback, saturate their relationships with kindness, and much more. With the right skills and tools, anyone can feel more confident handling a tough conversation.

Break out of that rut and fall in love with your life again by joining stand-up comic, SiriusXM host, and mom of six Jennifer Fulwiler in finding your blue flame.

Every one of us has a blue flame--a special skill, a personal passion, a gift or talent. But when caught up in life's busyness, it's too easy to make a habit of suppressing our most joyful contributions to the world.

As Jennifer learned, the secret to a life you love isn't necessarily jumping the track, quitting your job, or hustling to make your dream your full-time reality. Rather, it's about doing more of what makes you come alive in your actual life. Your Blue Flame is your upbeat playbook to rekindling your energy, sparking those meaningful "first loves" back to life again, and discovering the unique way each one of us can make the world a better, brighter place.

With Jennifer's wit and straight-forward, practical insights, this helpful guide will show you:

  • How to channel your blue flame's contagious energy
  • Why your blue flame is both personally fulfilling and a sacred duty to others
  • Tips and tricks to boldly make time for your passions
  • How to rethink dreaming big for your actual life
  • No matter where you are in life, you'll be inspired with stories of others who found their flames, like the couple who packed up their three kids and moved to a farm, the woman who discovered a passion for letter-writing at age ninety-five, and of course Jennifer's own story of self-producing her own stand-up comedy tour after being turned down by the entertainment industry establishment.

    It's been said that the glory of God is the soul fully alive. It's time to start chasing our spark, and Your Blue Flame will show you how.

    If God is loving, why is there suffering? What's the difference between permitting something and ordaining it? When bad things happen, who's behind them--God or the devil? When suffering touches our lives, questions like these suddenly demand an answer. From our perspective, suffering doesn't make sense, especially when we believe in a loving and just God. After more than thirty years in a wheelchair, Joni Eareckson Tada's intimate experience with suffering gives her a special understanding of God's intentions for us in our pain. In When God Weeps, she and lifelong friend Steven Estes probe beyond glib answers that fail us in our time of deepest need. Instead, with firmness and compassion, they reveal a God big enough to understand our suffering, wise enough to allow it--and powerful enough to use it for a greater good than we can ever imagine
