When your world falls apart without warning, where is God? Less than a heartbeat away, according to Dr. David Jeremiah. When life suddenly turns upside down, there, in the midst of your trials and in the center of your pain, is God—comforting, guiding, encouraging, teaching, sustaining.
In this perceptive and deeply personal book, renowned pastor and teacher David Jeremiah draws from the beautiful poetry and deep truths of the Psalms—passages that gave him comfort and strength on his journey into the unknown. As he identified the traumatic events that inspired the writing of the ten well-lived psalms included in these pages, Dr. Jeremiah found his focus changing. Instead of asking "Why?" he began to ask "What, O Lord? What do you have to teach me? What would you have me do?"
Interwoven with his own reflections and insights are the inspiring real-life stories of other men and women who have faced unexpected adversity—and found that God's grave truly is sufficient for every need.
From the vantage point of his own battle with cancer, David Jeremiah opens up the biblical pharmacy to dispense the divine radiation that cures the soul of the sufferer. He does so with the unsight and sensitivity that can come only from one who has a deep understanding both of Scripture and sickness.

For those times when life overwhelms us... When Your World Falls Apart will be a balm of healing.
