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.”
“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.”
“In her book, Seeing God Through The Storm, Joanna observes that one of the “gifts” Job received during his momentous storm was the priceless privilege of seeing God for the first time. Because of her own ongoing storm, Joanna, too, has seen the Lord in fresh and powerful ways. With wisdom gained from her adversity, you will be encouraged to persevere through your own storms as you ponder her profound meditations from the book of Job. You will also be blessed in being reminded that as you endure you will see God.”
