About the Book

Suffering the long-term torment of physical or mental illness or the anguish of losing a child to leukemia or losing a son or daughter to a drug overdose are the faces of suffering. Waiting for Grace: How to Make the Most of Your Suffering explores the reasons we suffer from inherited sin to the glory of God. This book will also discuss how our attitudes in suffering can lighten the load, in addition to providing both practical and spiritual means for thriving in suffering. It will look at suffering that is long as well as the promises in scripture for the suffering. As we travel the path of suffering we grapple with a God who allows suffering, and we struggle for even a glimmer of understanding.The purpose of this book is to encourage, comfort, impart hope, and give meaning to those who suffer, and it offers stories from those who find meaning and blessing in their suffering.
