In a world full of uncertainty and challenges, there are moments when it feels like God isn’t speaking, and we’re left dealing with doubt and feeling hopeless. What should we do when we think God has left us on our own?
Enter When God Seems Gone: Finding Hope When Nothing Makes Sense by Adam Mabry. This book, from The Good Book Company, is a beacon of hope in challenging times. It looks at the stories of biblical figures like Habakkuk, Job, David, and Jesus, as well as the author’s own experiences of suffering, to explore the art of lament – how to cry out to God in the midst of despair while holding onto faith and hope.
But it doesn’t stop there. Mabry provides practical suggestions for those moments when we feel like God is distant or unfair. He reminds us that God is big enough and good enough to handle our toughest questions, even in His silence.
The richness of this book lies in its deep connection to the Bible. Its pages are filled with thought-provoking insights and teachings drawn from the scriptures, making it a truly enriching and biblically rich source of guidance and inspiration.
As I’ve journeyed through its pages, I couldn’t help but mark it with little tabs throughout. These tabs are like breadcrumbs leading me back to the sentences and paragraphs that have had a deep impact on me. They’ve been like anchors for my thoughts and reminders of the wisdom I’ve found within these pages, and where I’ve found comfort, or inspiration and encouragement. This book feels like it has become a conversation with a trusted friend, where I want to highlight the most significant and insightful passages. I’ve not only enjoyed reading it but also engaging with it on a deeper level.
“When God seems silent and the shouts of pain, fear, trauma, anxiety, shame, and sadness are all you can hear, remember that God sees the whole picture, and his plan is still working. It will not always be this way, and as you pass such a test, you can rest assured that one day you will hear his voice clearly say, Well done, my good and faithful servant. Welcome home.”When God Seems Gone by Adam Mabry
