When life falls apart, where is God? Does he care? Can he fix things? Does he really love us? In an uncertain world, we need to know that God is still in control, that he still cares for us and even suffers with us, and that he has a plan that cannot be defeated.
In his compassionate and caring style, Warren Wiersbe shows you that the answers to these big questions are available, reliable, and encouraging. If you are feeling beaten down, discouraged, or weary in the face of hard times, Warren wants you to know that you are never alone and that the future is bright. His faith-bolstering insights show you that, with God as your source of comfort, you can weather the storms of life—and come out on top.
