No pain. No gain. It's a phrase we hate to hear. We all know that life sometimes stinks, and no amount of careful planning or persistent pleading can prevent it. But how can we deal with the flood of anxiety, negative attitude, and emotions in order to trust God through the anguish? Filled with illustrations of suffering from the author's own life, this book provides a roadmap for going through trials and suffering. By developing a thought process for facing difficult times, a Christian can do his or her part to minimize the shock and paralysis of such periods.
