“A book complete on grief, loss, and despair that encourages the reader to seek God as their source of healing.” Bob Kellemen has compiled an exceptional resource in God’s Healing for Life’s Losses: How to Find Hope When You’re Hurting.
Beginning with identifying grief (the stages and statistics) and moving on to the deeper subjects of how to move oneself from loss to victory by pointing to the Great Physician.
The sections of this book I found particularly interesting were the ones that focused on being honest with God in the tough times of life. Friendship and love are essential in meaningful relationships. Being honest with God means freedom to be candid and complain, to be open with our deepest thoughts and feelings, and to allow God to shape us through the hard times in life and move us to a new experience of worship.
Times of pain, hurt, and loss come to all of us. Growing through these times is what this book is all about. The saying ‘Pain is inevitable, growth is optional‘ is relative to the instruction contained in this book. Dr. Kellemen directs the reader how to grow through times of suffering and press on to discover a new, deeper relationship with our Creator.
A great resource written by an experienced Christian Counselor who includes personal accounts of periods of grief and sadness in his own life, I would recommend it highly.
