Have you ever faced a storm in life which caused you to question your faith? Have you ever had to reassess whether you unequivocally believe the truths you have fervently proclaimed throughout your life? Praise Him Anyway: The Blessing Is the Storm chronicles the whirlwind of emotions we often experience as we face life’s most challenging moments. Reflecting on some of life’s biggest storms, this book offers insight into Stephanie Bernard’s journey towards a greater understanding of the purpose behind life’s difficulties, the lessons we can learn from them, and the power we have through God to overcome.
Are you in the middle of a storm in your life? Is your challenge lasting longer than you thought it would? Are you struggling to hang on? Are you finding God harder and harder to find in the midst of your lingering struggles?
Author Stephanie J. Bernard wrote this book for you! She’s compiled the ten lessons she learned about God in life’s most challenging times in her book, Praise Him Anyway – The Blessing Is The Storm.
The ten lessons use various challenges that people face in life as examples. Each lesson is related to Biblical men and women and their particular story as it pertains to the topic. The author’s personal reflection on her own storms, plus a scripture reflection and questions to ponder round out each lesson.
Even if a reader hasn’t faced the exact challenges the author addresses, the concepts apply to any storm. The topics are both encouraging and challenging, such as: God wants to make your mountains a road, Make sure the voice you’re heeding is the right one, Make decisions with the kingdom in mind, and You can’t choose which of God’s commands to follow.
Bernard’s goal is that with some faith and reflection, readers will come to realize that their blessing may well be the storm.
