There are times when we all need reminding that we’re never invisible in God’s eyes and that we can trust Him to show up powerfully in our lives.
In Joan E. Murray's new book, You Can TRUST Him: Anchoring Your Hope in God During Difficult Times she unpacks the complex topic of trust and shares powerful, modern-day examples of God’s presence.
"This book was inspired because all around me, whether I'm here in the U.S. or in other places of the world, so many people are struggling with trusting God," Murray explains. "And so do I."
"I've been serving the Lord for many years, but whenever we hit hard seasons and difficult times, we all struggle with trust in God."
In her inspirational new book, You Can TRUST Him: Anchoring Your Hope in God During Difficult Times, Murray aims to help readers rediscover their confidence in God and reconnect with their faith through uplifting stories of modern-day men and women who, in the midst of devastating hardship, chose to trust God.
Woven throughout are explorations of Biblical figures who were unsure they could survive their painful struggles: Hagar, Jeremiah, Caleb, John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene and Leah, to name a few. The result is a powerful juxtaposition of old and new reminders of God’s presence in our lives, and deep truths about God’s love, compassion and care for each of His children.
