I Didn't Sign Up For This : Finding Hope When Everything Is Going Wrong
Author: John F. Westfall
So many things have the power to change our lives dramatically--loss, fear, betrayal, failure. When everything goes wrong in life, it's so easy to give in to the pain, frustration, and anger that threaten to overwhelm us. Though we may feel like giving up, there is life--abundant, exciting, and fulfilling--after our world gets turned upside down. In fact, says John Westfall, it's often in the face of fear and loss that we truly learn to live with courage, faith, and surprising joy.
Westfall speaks from experience. He may have pretended everything was fine, but inside he was beaten down, burdened, and aching for freedom from the depression that gripped him after a sudden loss. Through his own story, the stories of others, and wisdom from Scripture, Westfall shares with readers the peace of acceptance, the pleasure of release, and the power of risk.
Joy can be ours, even after devastating events. This book lights the way to a bright and new beginning.
