Bookmobile Wednesday: God at Your Wit's End

Rating: five out of five stars

Synopsis: "'I know God loves me but does he like me? Can I really trust Him with my life? Are my prayers not answered because I don't have enough faith? Maybe these problems I'm having are because God hasn't really forgiven me…' These questions and more constantly plague our minds and weaken our faith in God. In God at Your Wit's End author and counselor Marilyn Meberg probes the corners of our mind to uncover the faulty thinking that leads to an uncertain faith. She then explains how God affirms and even welcomes our humanity in the midst of our brokenness. As she continually points us to the awesome power of God's majestic truth, she helps us reshape our thinking as we re-establish the foundations of our belief in a loving God. Complete with thoughtful applications and probing questions, each chapter is designed for either group or personal study and in-depth reflection." (taken from description)

Comments: It's been a while since I read this book, but I remember that it was very encouraging and I could not put it down. It's a great picker upper for those of us going through hard times that make us want to question our faith. On top of that, Marilyn Meberg is an excellant writer. I love the Women of Faith speakers! I think I may need to read this book again. I've been going through a lot of stress over the smallest things lately. Too bad I have so many other books I want to read. Sometimes I think I get too caught up in finishing a book to actually take the time to think about and remember what the book teaches.
