What in the world is God doing? It's easy to wonder this. We are living in an unfolding story, and it's almost impossible to know the plans God has for our future. No wonder our faith can wane. It's hard to hold on when your deepest prayer hangs in the air unanswered. Or when circumstances you desperately wish would change drag on. Thankfully the Bible is filled with people who experienced the same thing. They had to learn to trust God's ways and timing--and their stories give us insights to live that way too.
Mining the often-overlooked passages of Scripture, Bible teacher Laurie Polich Short unearths 30 practical, encouraging gems of wisdom found in the faith and lives of biblical heroes. She helps you discover when to wait and when to move, when to hold on and when to let go, and how to have hope in circumstances that previously felt hopeless. Here is your compass to living your story well when the way forward is unclear.
