Seeing God Through The Storm – Empowering Truths from the Book of Job
“Are you feeling pressed and squeezed by your storm today? Is it all around you, suffocating you, never-ending?…We may feel like our storm indicates that God is against us, but suffering is actually God’s invitation for us to come closer to Him.”
Drawing from her personal experiences of loss, tragedy, and chronic illness, the author explores the story of Job to discover how we can see more of God in our storms. These 31 chapters use passages from both Old and New Testaments to shine light on Job’s trial and to offer encouragement for today.
Each chapter contains thought provoking questions and a journal page for reflection. A Discussion Guide is included for use with small groups, one-on-one mentoring, or Sunday School classes.
Whether reading this book individually or as a group, you’ll find life-changing truths that will empower you to draw closer to God in your storm.
“Joanna K. Harris brings the timeless truths of the suffering of Job into sharp 21st-century focus. Seeing God Through The Storm will provide you with fresh insight and encouragement for facing life’s storms with a vital faith in God’s gracious purpose for us. Each chapter contains thought-provoking questions designed to drive the truths home to life.” –Dr. Don Hawkins, President, Southeastern Bible College; former co-host and producer, Back To The Bible radio program; author/co-author of over 20 books.
“One of the greatest challenges we all face is how to understand God in the midst of suffering. Seeing God Through The Storm provides a practical, heart-felt approach to Job’s message, bringing it alive today. For me, what makes this book even more powerful is knowing that Joanna hasn’t simply written about these truths, but she has faithfully lived them out in the midst of her own storms. I highly recommend this book.” –Dr. Adam McClendon, Director of New Line Ministries.

I find I am being reminded of all the beautiful and creative aspects of God and appreciating the time to learn alongside of my daughter. Makes for great snuggle time, short, sweet and educational.” -Kierstyn B.
“I used Book 1 last year in AWANA for the sparks. It was so helpful! I loved the simple pages for the kids and yet the concepts on each page of who our God is, left me awestruck. We have an amazing God!
You have done an amazing job taking those concepts and making them simple enough for the kids to enjoy and be amazed at the God we have. You have made it fun and easy for me to teach these concepts to the kids and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a wealth of information in that simple devotional book.
Thank you!!!” -Charity D.
“I was so excited to receive Joanna K. Harris’ devotional for children, He’s My GOD! The descriptions of 18 unique characteristics of God were interesting and simple enough for even my three year old to understand. The pictures really helped to jog the kids’ memories as we reviewed as well.
It has been exciting to hear my boys integrating truths about God’s character into their daily lives. In a discussion about a mighty warrior during play time, one child reminded the other that while people can be mighty, only God is almighty.
Another time, I was discussing the ministry of counseling with an adult friend when my youngest piped up that God is the only perfect counselor. I’ve been delighted to witness them grasping these truths at a young age!
Joanna’s book met and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend it and look forward to Book 2!” -Shilo C.
