Sorrows visit all of us in many forms: job layoffs, doctor reports, divorces, foreclosures, prison sentences, natural disasters, or deaths of loved ones. Whatever the circumstance, it is in these places that our souls long for a light that will pierce the looming hopelessness. Author Beth Weikel compassionately leads her readers along the pathway of loss--one that she herself has traveled many times--and into the hope that passes all understanding. Through engaging stories from her own and others' experiences, she shines the light of God's Word upon a well-worn path of suffering. Her poignant and moving devotionals allow readers to press through their darkest journeys, sometimes asking themselves and God the hard questions, and finding the answers that only his Spirit can reveal.
