About the Book

After experiencing a host of family tragedies, author Wally Long found himself asking: “Why me, Lord? Why have you allowed all of this tragedy to take place in my family?” He searched the scriptures for answers, and God gave him a sermon. It was a sermon he needed. It was a sermon born of deep grief and suffering. That sermon serves as the foundation for this book, Why Me, Lord?, Wally prays the lessons he learned through his tragedies will be a blessing.

Neither a Bible study nor how-to book, he offers a host of Biblical principles meant to encourage you while you’re going through difficult times and trials in your life. In Why Me, Lord?, Wally presents general thoughts about trials, afflictions, and suffering; addresses what causes suffering; and discusses the purpose of suffering.

He shares the message that regardless of the cause of your challenges, God can and will use your suffering, giving you a purpose to it. He’ll use your sufferings to show himself strong in you, strengthen you, purify you, steer you back on course, reveal your character, accomplish his plans, and prepare you for his glory.
