What do you do when life falls apart and it feels as though God has left you? How do you keep going when your faith has been rocked to the core? We all go through painful times but sometimes things get so hard we’re not sure where God is or what he’s up to.
For Patrick there was pain, illness and loss in his family and community. Then he faced a series of excruciating operations that took him to the brink physically, emotionally and spiritually. Writing during his journey of recovery, Patrick takes an honest look at how we find God in these times of suffering. He wrestles with how we can know God’s peace when life is anything but peaceful, what the true nature of courage is, how we allow ourselves the grace to rest when we’re running on empty, and how we can stay fully present in the moment – all so we can ultimately grasp the love of God at a deeper level.
