God has not forgotten about you.
That's hard to remember in the face of disillusionment or heartache. Unbelief and doubt are buried deep within us, especially when we question God's goodness in the face of loss and abandonment. Ted Kluck's world was turned upside down after experiencing a failed adoption, where he found himself propelled into a year of doubt and disillusionment. Ronnie Martin struggled with the kind of identity and idolatry issues that come with being a well-known recording artist, before the unexpected death of his father allowed those sins to be brought to the surface of his heart. It is in the midst of these and other everyday stories that we learn how God reveals His boundless grace to every one of us.
Whether you've lost someone you loved, suffered career failure, or simply been let down by a fellow Christian, it's natural to wonder whether God has forgotten about you. You're not alone. But as a believer, you can trust that overcoming individual challenges will prepare you for a greater purpose. Kluck and Martin's raw revelations about their mistakes and disappointments will help you on your own journey to finding God when you’re standing in the dark.
Doubt is such a common thing in the human mind. Because we can't physically see or touch something, we tend to believe it is no longer there, but that's not how God works. Fear and doubt is the product of the enemy, it's only when we fully rely on God and trust the path he has chosen for us that we truly find who he is and what he can do for us. Both authors show how their failures and losses lead them down a road of doubt and the feeling of abandonment by God and how they found their way back and learned to trust in him fully. I would recommend this book for anyone whos going through a rough patch or has doubts about whether God really cares, because he certainly does!
