There are days when everything goes wrong. You feel like you re going crazy and you must do something to stop the avalanche falling on your head and the problems piling up around you. You think of calling in the rescue team. Blowing your whistle to get attention. Running and hiding somewhere in a cave. You need to get away from the problem. Or fix it.
But is fixing some situation or solving the problem yourself always what God wants you to do? What if you don t have to do anything to get what God has planned just for you? All you have to do is believe in the one who controls everything. And then change nothing.
This is what author Laurie Short wants to help you learn to do. To be content in every circumstance when it seems the walls are falling in upon you. To have the peace of God which passes all understanding no matter what is going on.
What if you could see the big picture that you are facing with God, instead of the smaller picture that you are creating. What if you could think of what you have, instead of immediately moaning about what you don t. The author helps you learn these first responses of patient faith to any situation you face.
With Laurie s book, you can get hope by just remembering the way God acted in the past. You can actually learn to live with things when you learn to live without them. You can see that the life you have is the best life to have. You can see that all things work together for good.
It s all a matter of perspective, of seeing, and realizing, that when you trust God with what has happened, you don t have to frantically try to change your world. All you need to do is believe in what he does, and change nothing. And that changes everything."
