Our kids beg us for stories at bedtime or while we drive; we gather around firepits and dinner tables to tell and retell our favorite tales–the more dramatic the better. But when it comes to our actual lives, we prefer something less sensational, even boring–sunny skies and smooth sailing, please and thank you. We want our own stories to be predictable, safe, controllable, and catastrophe-free.
When plans fall apart, jobs are lost, kids wander off, doctors give bad reports, we often wonder, “What are you doing, God? Are you sure you have this under control? It doesn’t really seem like it right now.”
God is the master Storyteller. He’s writing your story and it’s a part of His bigger, grander, eternal Story. But we’re still in the middle. We haven’t gotten to the happy ending yet, and it can be hard to trust Him in the thick of our struggles. That’s why Robert and Nancy share their own story, friends’ stories, and the stories of people in the Bible who have faced life-altering challenges, but, in the end, have found God to be faithful. Learn why you really can trust God to write your story–no matter what plot twists you may encounter along the way.
In their first book together, Robert and Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth share biblical and modern-day stories of God’s providence at work, including their own account of finding love and marrying. As you see the Lord redeem impossible situations in the unlikeliest ways, you’ll be encouraged to experience his hand in your own life.
