Item description for God Help Me! by Clarence W. Walker...
Overview Life can sometimes be incredibly hard.Sometimes we find ourselves at the bottom of a pit of despair, dejection, and possible defeat. The death of those close to us, economic concerns, sudden unemployment, past or present abuse, divorce, addiction, major depression, or other major life-shaking events can lead us to the breaking point. Situations of hardship, loss, disappointment, and extreme hurt can leave us all physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually drained and unable to function. With nowhere to turn and no apparent way out,we cry,we scream, and we plead,"God help me!". This is the author's personal testimony based upon his own life experiences, observations, reflections, and training in chaplaincy, ministry, counseling, and life. Here the author shares the feelings and insights gained in times of such extreme challenge as well as spiritual and practical steps toward climbing out of the pit before starting over or moving forward in life. Neither theological nor psychological, this is the work of one who has been there in his own life and in the lives of others. God Help Me! is for those seeking hope,meaning, purpose, and the hand of God to help them climb out of the darkness.

God will provide in time of great need! Mar 4, 2006
Mr. Walker has been thru many trials in life, and his book is another great testimony of how God is faithful and will provide to those who seek Him first. I highly recommend this book, especially if you are going thru a major life changes such as a job loss or divorce. I have also read "Starting over God's way." by Mr. Walker. No matter how much you have stumbled in the past or even turned your back on God, He is still right behind you ready to receive you.
Uplifting Christian Thoughts for the Despondent Feb 13, 2004
Many people react to times of troubles by blaming and hating God. Others seriously consider ending their lives. Still others are simply sad and unable to cope. Among all of these people, some are Christians and will suddenly think to turn to God for answers for their difficulties. God Help Me! is an excellent choice for these last people.
Mr. Walker was ending a year of severe despondency and depression following his third divorce in just a few years when he felt inspired to write this book. The pain is fresh in his heart and he uses that pain to share helpful thoughts about Jesus along with plenty of quotations from the New Testament.
He begins by reminding the hurting person that God loves everyone, saints and sinners alike. He also points out that Jesus ministered to those in the direst circumstances as top priority. Mr. Walker also points out that God has given each of us stewardship over our own souls and bodies, and that we are responsible to God to take good care of them.
By mid-book, Mr. Walker shifts into the stages of recovery from grief that are well documented in psychology books and provides Christian counsel about how to deal with the denial and anger that linger and stall healing for so many people.
In the end, he focuses on the need to use whatever faith in God remains and use that faith to rebuild a life in conformance with God's love and guidance. As a newly recovering Christian, you can then put the past behind you through God's forgiveness and love and live a life that brings you much goodness and joy.
One of the many interesting arguments in the book is that many people tend to forget God when things are going well. Could it be that God has using your trials to get your attention?
