In these days, it appears that evil is triumphant. It seems as though the bad guy is even being rewarded for craftiness. Decisions are no longer based upon biblical or moral principles, but rather on personal benefit and profitability. The effects of these decisions reach to the very core of our society, causing divisions and grief in our families, our relationships, and our jobs. This seems to be especially true in the world we live in today. In Abide in Me, we are taking AIM at the root of this calamity. Abide in Me contains stories about the author's own life, which left him wondering, "Why me?" The stories demonstrate how a person can turn, or be turned, 180 degrees from the path he was created to walk and find his way back. We have all experienced trials. Perhaps we have made personal or selfish decisions, which seem to have had disastrous effects on ourselves and those around us. At this point in your life, you may even be thinking there is no hope, because of what you have done. Your past does not define you. Hope for your future is possible, but there are necessary steps you must be willing to take. Joel Trenkle has gone from diving in dumpsters to doctor, but not on his own strength. You can find refreshing new meaning and purpose for your life in this book.
