One day the sun is shining, the winds are calm, and the water is smooth -- then all of a sudden, a furious storm comes out of nowhere, and the waves break over you and knock you off your feet. Grasping for breath, you struggle to regain your senses. You turn your eyes to heaven in search of help -- but sometimes...you can't see the help, and sometimes...you don't know if you're heard.
This book is written by and for storm travelers. This book is about surviving the storm. To help you survive your storm, Jerry Jones freely shares his own hard-earned insights gained from his five-year ordeal of watching his wife die after a valiant struggle with cancer. Other storm travelers also share personal stories of death, terror, divorce, and illness. Together, these Voices from the Storm confirm that you are not alone in your heartache, and their struggles and victories assure you that there is a path that leads to the peaceful shore.
After reading the touching stories of these storm survivors, you will find four chapters offering solid, "Assurances from God's Word" that answer some of life's most haunting questions -- Is God really with me? Does God really care? Is there life beyond this one? and Why must we suffer?
The pages of this book will fill you with comfort and will empower you with strength and fortitude to survive and move beyond the storm.
