READ ´ Torn By Jud Wilhite O is worthy of our trust when our trust when our lives are in pieces You may be experiencing a time of such darkness that you wonder if you will ever find “normal” again or look toward the future with hope In Torn Jud explores your uestions as well as God’s answers—and God’s mysteries With a pastor’s heart he looks with you at practi. When I saw the title of this book I just knew I had to get a copy of it and read it and I am glad that I didIn his very relevant for the times we live in book the author addresses the age old issue of trusting God when our lives falls apart around us Having been there myself that is having had my world come crashing down on me into thousands of pieces which no mortal could put back together again having broken life and not being able to fix it and only God could I wanted to read author Wilhite s perspective on the matter In his book he hits the proverbial nail on the head in regards to the issue of suffering and what the proper response for a follower of Christ out to beThe author opens his book with some insights concerning the all too familiar refrain It s not fair and then moves right on to the uestion almost everyone invariably asks when their lives fall apart Why But thankfully and fortunately for us as his reader he does not leave us there for any length of timerather he uickly takes us as his reader to the uestion we should all ask and answer correctly and that is Who And the who is GodIn Chapter 1 the author shares a personal story of friends of his a story about a family that experienced as he called it Dream Detours when their infant son suddenly and unexpectedly died In sharing their story he revealed the depths of their doubt anger and pain all very natural and human emotions but he also revealed what happened when the parents got the proper view of God in light of their pain and suffering and how they experienced healing as a result Author Wilhite directs us as his reader to a high view of God and his sovereignty by uoting the Apostle Paul in Colossians 115 18 and then rightly states at the end of the chapter We can turn ground zero into a sanctuary of worship to God And we can if we choose to do soIn Chapter 2 the author writes concerning Reframing Our Expectations something which is essential for us to do if we are to enjoy an abundant spiritual life regardless of our circumstances I especially enjoyed reading his thoughts about what he refers to as The New Now in that chapterFrom Chapters 2 to 9 author Wilhite shares testimonies of a number of different people who have experienced a variety of devastating experiences in their lives including the acclaimed pastor teacher and author Charles Haddon Spurgeon and how by directing their attention towards the Who God and not the Why for their answers and comfort they were able to endure their tribulations and suffering and ultimately bring great glory to God But it was not easy for them as he writes Oft times the road was long and the way was hard but the they focused on God and the glory of his person the greater the blessing was for them in the midst of their suffering I do want to refer to Chapter s 8 and 9 briefly as in them author Wilhite writes about the issues of depression and forgivenessI commend him for treating these difficult and sometimes controversial subjects among Christians in the understanding compassionate and Biblical manner in which he does He does not proffer any type of uick fix or advocate just attempting to put a spiritual band aid on the issues of depression or forgiveness nor does he list a litany of short spiritual phrases or even Scriptures that one could uote to be healed Rather he calls upon the reader to truly focus on God in all his glory and majesty as well as to constantly war with our attitude in fighting for joy And it is a war of attitude that does reuire a fight and sometimes the fight seems almost too overwhelming in and of ourselves and in our own strength but as the author reminds us in his book through sharing the testimonies of the people he does as well as through the Scriptures our victory IS in ChristAnd he writes regarding the matter of forgiveness A lack of forgiveness is the number one obstacle to our healing and our joy And on that point the author and I agreeIn the end the author provides us with 2 invaluable insights that if we would but accept them and appropriate them in our lives we would all experience a greater degree of spiritual freedom and the abundant life that Jesus promised The insights I am referring to are 1 The world is about God and his glory than it is about us and our comfort And 2 Whatever you do don t go stagnant in your life Keep moving keep growing keep praying keep screaming I liked this one LOL and keep searching And that just about says it all If your life is torn right now and you are looking for a way to put the pieces of your life

READ Torn By Jud WilhiteTorn By Jud Wilhite

READ ´ Torn By Jud Wilhite Cal ways to fight for joy deal with anger and depression and make the million tiny decisions that add up to a life committed to God even when your heart is broken  It’s not about having better arguments for the purpose behind our suffering It’s about our relationship with God—a relationship that can flourish even when our whys go unanswere. Though I am not currently experiencing a fresh trauma I was interested in reading Jud Wilhite s book Torn Trusting God When Life Leaves You in Pieces because I saw that he diverts readers from why uestions about their situations to who uestionsAlmost seven years ago my 31 year old sister athletic and slender joyful and generous died suddenly while she was on her regular brisk morning walk She was at the top of her game enjoying professional success and exploring new prospects and was only eight weeks away from her wedding day To say that her death came as a surprise grossly understates our loss in the ensuing days we sought to understand our grief and her absence My experience was that asking why didn t help me A pertinent uestion came to my aid which I ll tell about laterIn Torn Wilhite acknowledges that sometimes our pain stems from situations that cannot be adeuately explained through why uestions He does not downplay the pain that people feel when facing death injury illness betrayal and instead he reminds us that why uestions lead to a dark confusing frustrating lonely disconnected place why keeps you stuck in the pain and chokes out the potential to heal Wilhite steers readers instead to a thorough look at a series of who uestions Who is in control Who is at the center of your attention the object of your worship Who is just Who can mend what is brokenInherent in the answers to the who uestions according to Wilhite is the realization that Jesus chose to suffer on our behalf and that he put himself in a position alongside us identifying with us to redeem us from our suffering Alongside such heroes of the faith as St Augustine Wilhite argues that we will suffer on this earth and that our living a good life offers no guarantee against pain So the final who uestion is Who loves you If you accept that the answer is God Wilhite says then your response even in crisis will be trustAnd that trust we read in Torn leads us to the practical uestions the how uestions How will we put some of the pieces back together Wilhite asserts that living in community with others is essential In complement to seeking out others Wilhite suggests that waiting on God in what feels like complete radio silence develops our characters and even brings forth aspects of us that we might never let come to light otherwise Wilhite s last instructions to those who suffer are to fight for joy and to forgive They won t come all at once for most people he argues but pursuing small moments of joy and taking steps toward forgiveness will help restore a soul consumed by lossHow was the uestion that I asked when my sister died How can I get through this How will I honor God in this pain How can I reflect her joyous attitude toward others How will I help others remember her How will I best honor her memoryIn our pain Wilhite says we can feel lost and the key to staying alive for those who get desperately lost is not knowing how to be found but knowing how to survive until they are foundWilhite has a winning book in Torn I will be ready to pass it on to others I know who are hurting and though I hope I will not have to do so for a long time the likelihood is that all too soon a dear friend or family member will have need of the Christian wisdom and practicality contained in this bookI received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah
