emotionally, spiritually and relationally This book isn t about providing a cheery, cliched outlook to balance the scales of grief into something positive It s all about the work of facing the chronic, devastating and open ended pain that we encounter in this life those lands between the already and not yet After a difficult year and delving into the concept of lament in a much personal way, the timing of reading this book was perfect for me Putting into words so many things I struggled with and learned for the first time this year in a hands on way This guidebook on lament not only teaches about lament but creates space to say, it s okay to have big emotions, lack answers and to feel disconnected from God but still know that he is there.I would recommend this read to anyone, but especially those who find themselves in seasons of feeling abandoned by God, suffering, loss or pain Our hope in suffering us never found by striving to see the positive or looking on the bright side Hope for the Christian is always about the object of our hope, the one all laments long for and lead to, the embodiment and answer of all laments Jesus Aubrey Sampson flag 3 likesLike see review Jan

Kingdom Come you broke the bonds and you loosed the chains, carried the cross of my shame In the midst of all of this music, Aubrey begins to process her layers of pain and loss, including the recent onset of a painful, chronic, lifelong disease She writes, I ve walked with Jesus for so long We ve been through much together We ve overcome together But now I feel utterly and completely abandoned I don t know if he will ever calm this storm I don t know if I will ever find a peace that passes all understanding Where is God in this What s he doing This book chronicles Aubrey s journey to accept pain and suffering as an invitation to embrace it and learn from it, to let it do its good work in her soul To lament And to invite God into the process She writes, All laments lead to the truest form of worship the worship of God alone Not God and blessings, not God and benefits, but God for God s sake No matter what happens This thoughtful, honest book should help many who grieve to hang on through the dark days and even begin to hear a louder song, the song of love Jesus sings over them flag Like see review Jan 21, 2019 Fay Jacobsohn rated it it was amazing I have to admit, when I first

There are several kinds of laments in Scripture and near the end of the book, the author turns us towards laments for others and for our nation and what we can do about it The author suffers a chronic and debilitating illness as well as personal tragedies in her family She not only knows how to lament but how to encourage us to and to hear God s voice speaking to us through the lamenting period She uses a lot of examples from her own life and I found this to be a very interesting book In the appendices, she has a section on how to give or not advice to others, verses to cling to in times of pain, and a study guide to your own lament journey This is a great book for those dealing with physical or emotional pain in their own lives or with others close to them In this world, we are going to endure suffering, so this book is for everyone It is okay to lament and cry out to God, in fact, we are encouraged to do so Please Note While this book was given to me to review by Tyndale House
