    Fear Not
    By Max Lucado
    Although fear fills our world, it doesn’t have to fill our hearts. No one likes living in a world filled with fear and uncertainty. But in such times, God does some of His most important work. Our part is to trust that He will be true to His promises. Brimming with comfort, encouragement, and truth, Max Lucado’s Fear Not Promise Book addresses six major topics related to fear, from “God Is with You” to “God Is Never Surprised.” While fear corrodes confidence, faith in God’s love and presence always restores hope. 

    Hope in the Dark: Believing God Is Good When Life Is Not
    By Craig Groeschel
    "I want to believe, I want to have hope, but . . ." Pastor and bestselling author Craig Groeschel hears these words often and has asked them himself. We want to know God, feel his presence, and trust that he hears our prayers, but in the midst of great pain, we may wonder if he really cares about us. Even when we have both hope and hurt, sometimes it's the hurt that shouts the loudest. Can God be good when life is not?

    By Lysa Terkeurst
    Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.

    Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she's also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In It's Not Supposed to Be This Way, Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor.
