God Never Quits What do you do when life tumbles in-when all that you've counted on is stripped away and you ask, "Why, God . . . why me?" After almost forty years of pastoral ministry, Dr. Jensen was charged with a crime he didn't commit. After two trials, conviction, prison, and probation, he lost almost everything that he had counted on: wealth, friends, reputation, credentials, etc. It appeared his ministry was over. During this time Paul's letter to the Philippians became an outline for his own experience, and what God has taught him. Most importantly, the theme, God Never Quits-"He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion" is really a challenge to each of us, especially as we go through some dark times. Coming from most people, "God never quits" might sound hollow-but not from Vern. He has endured things that would crush most people, and he has come out on the other side with a faith that has actually gotten stronger. We all go through hard times and when we do, most of us tend to wonder, "Why me?" We ask why God is letting us hurt in this way, or why He seems so far away. As you read Vern's story, it becomes clear very quickly that he is not like most people. Faced with hard times, Vern very quickly shifts his thoughts from "why me" to "Lord, what are you trying to teach me?" This book isn't just an account of what happened in Vern's life: it is a reminder of what God can do through each of us if we let him.
