What a wonderful book!! Dec 30, 2006
I absolutely love this book. My copy is underlined in many places. Kay Arthur shares her wisdom as a Bible teacher to assure readers of God's sovreignty in ANY and EVERY situation of life. Very comforting and informative. It will make any reader want to dig into the Word of God.
This book is a blessing to my soul May 10, 2005
To think, this book had been in print for five years before I found it! It's extraordinary in its frankness, concerning present failures, past regrets, and absolute faith in God's sovereignty. What a blessing that I found it at last! I recommend it to any Christian who is troubled by past sins or mistakes. Even though God has forgiven you, do you have trouble forgiving yourself? This book is a great encouragement, and an enormous comfort.
The title drew me in. EMBRACE disappointments? Pardon me?
The book proved to be a keeper, and beyond that, one to buy for others too. I have a large collection of Christian books, but few of them have earned a place on my bed stand. This book is the most dog-eared of all. I have read it again and again, and God has blessed me each time, with a new discovery about my own life, or a fresh concept to encourage me. Kay's insight is breathtaking to me.
She writes of trials that the enemy wishes would serve to destroy us, and what we can do about it, to reclaim our lives and our joy.
She writes of God: "if this trial were not for your benefit and His glory, He would never have allowed it to seep through His fingers of love into your life. The disappointment has come, precious child of God, not because God desires to hurt you or make you miserable, or to demoralize you or ruin your life or keep you from ever knowing happiness. Rather, it comes because He wants you to be perfect and complete in every aspect, lacking nothing... God will use the disappointments of life to teach and train you and to make you more like Jesus Christ. God will use them to do something awesome: to reproduce Himself in you."
And: "Let's look at a second particularly dangerous kind of disappointment: our regrets over the past. Something I constantly have to remind myself of ... is that whatever happens, happens. Once it's done, there's no changing it. No matter how I try, I cannot erase the past... Whatever happened, happened. We can't remake our pasts. But with God we can handle the past. With God, whatever has happened in the past need not destroy us....
Where there is hope there can never be despair. .. And since He's the God of all hope, the reality that our pasts cannot be changed need not demoralize and destroy us."
and: "God is not a destroyer of us. Even when He allows us to self-destruct because of our wrong choices, even then He intervenes in His sovereignty for His children."
and: "don't ever doubt His love or concern for you as His child - no matter what you might have done, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in."
Kay Arthur's book is exceedingly encouraging and uplifting. She writes with sincere humility, and enormous faith. She has given me an entirely new understanding of why God allows life's trials, even those that I caused myself. And she lays out a path of faith for those who have stumbled, that leads away from despair.
