When You Can't Find God by Linda Evens Shepherd - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from the publisher)

You can find hope and peace--no matter what

The storms of life visit us all, and at times we find ourselves ill-prepared to weather them. Where is God when everything comes crashing down? Where is he when a job is lost? When a child goes astray? When the diagnosis is cancer? Does he even care?

In When You Can't Find God, Linda Evans Shepherd teaches you how to see God in any circumstance, even when it's hard. With compassion born from her own experiences with tragedy, Shepherd offers you practical strategies for surviving difficult times, giving your troubles to God, praying through the pain, and finding peace, hope, and joy once more. She also shows you how to use the tough times as a tool to draw nearer to God.

No one is exempt from pain and trials. But there is always hope.

My Thoughts:

There are no words adequate enough to express how healing this book was and is to me. Everyone faces difficulty in their lives, and there are times when the human heart perceives God as absent from their circumstances. The child of God is NEVER without the Father’s presence! Linda Evans Shepherd uses her book, When You Can’t Find God, to guide the believer to the feet of Jesus through prayer, scripture and encouragement like no one else could ever do!

Linda’s prayers made this book feel as though you were being ministered to by a close friend. Through sharing her own life experiences, her struggles and her victories, believers will learn how to live each day, even each moment, drawing closer to God. Truly, this book will prove vital in many lives to reassure those who are struggling that God is very near. Linda offers practical admonition and blessed encouragement to everyone, and the end result…such joy!

I can’t recommend this book highly enough!
