Description

Life doesn’t always go the way we hoped, and sometimes God doesn’t answer our prayers the way we’d like. Challenging circumstances, especially ones with no immediate end in sight, can cause us to question God’s character, his purpose and his ways.

Each of these 20 biblical reflections examines a truth about God and shows how it provides an anchor for the soul in hard times. Author Katie Faris writes with warmth and compassion, weaving in stories of her own family’s struggles with complex medical conditions. She encourages readers to entrust their confusing circumstances and unanswered questions to the Lord and place their hope in his promises. In so doing, they will be sustained in their suffering and enabled to live joyfully and fruitfully, loving and serving God and others, in the midst of their struggles.

This beautiful hardback book will help you if you are going through hard times, or walking alongside those who are. It is also a great gift for a brother or sister in Christ who is struggling.

Katie Faris has written Loving My Children: Embracing Biblical Motherhood. She also writes articles for The Gospel Coalition, Risen Motherhood, Women Encouraged, and Servants of Grace and blogs at katiefaris.com.

“Compassionate and Encouraging”

In this devotional collection, Katie Faris shares meaningful reflections on persevering through suffering. There are twenty different readings, and each one is approximately eight pages long. Faris begins with a story or example from her own life, and then she connects her experiences to a Bible verse about suffering. Each reading ends with a short prayer and some journaling prompts. Throughout the book, she emphasizes God's faithfulness and character, showing how He is compassionate, trustworthy, and at work in the midst of our pain.

However, even though Faris grounds this book in theological truth, her reflections never become abstract or academic. She conveys these truths from within her own life's context, showing how she has personally experienced God's character while navigating the health issues that some of her children have due to a rare genetic disorder. Many elements of this book are very personal, focusing on her family's struggles, and other parts are more general, sharing different examples of what readers might be dealing with. The memoir elements will especially resonate with other parents of children with genetic disorders or other severe health problems, but the book's overall messages apply to all readers, regardless of their circumstances.

"He Will Be Enough: How God Takes You by the Hand Through Your Hardest Days" is a compassionate, encouraging resource for suffering Christians. Katie Faris's vulnerability about her struggles, deep faith in God, and ability to articulate meaningful truths from Scripture can be a great blessing to different readers, and this devotional can help them fix their eyes on God and trust Him in the midst of their pain. This is a platitude-free devotional from someone else in the trenches, and I would especially recommend it to other mothers of children with health issues.

“An engaging, personal and inspiring book”

He Will Be Enough by Katie Faris, is an engaging, personal and inspiring book that helps readers to truly understand and know God’s character, that He is enough and He’s all we need. It’s during those difficult times that God can make the impossible possible. He can use what the enemy meant for evil and turn it to good, He can use the situations that we are currently going through for His glory, to help us, to shape and mould us and to make us stronger, to know that He is good, He is faithful and that it’s only through Him that we can find rest, healing and peace from all the world throws at us and tells us.

He Will Be Enough is a wonderful book that will help you through those hard seasons and tough times, whilst diving into scripture to remind us of the promises of God and His truth. Even during the most difficult of days, weeks, months and years, God is enough. With a time for prayer and reflection at the end of each chapter, we can start to bring our thoughts in alignment with God’s, to get straight into scripture and see for ourselves the sure promises of God, to spend that much needed time with Him and to know just how powerful prayer is.

“A helpful companion for telling our stories of suffering”

Anyone who has walked through suffering (Katie calls this "whatever your 'hard' is") knows how difficult it can be to put words to that experience. This often leads to or exacerbates our feelings of isolation in the midst of suffering. What stands out to me about He Will Be Enough is the framework it provides for articulating - and thus inviting others into - our experience. Katie does this by example, sharing her story and her reflections in bite-sized morsels in each chapter. She also does this by creating space for reflection at the end of each chapter (this space is set up well either for personal mulling or for guided group discussion). Ultimately, Katie leads her reader in telling his/her story within the context of God's larger story, both of which have yet to be told in full. If you are looking for biblical encouragement as you process a challenging circumstance or season of your life, He Will Be Enough could be a helpful companion on that journey.

“He is Enough!”

From the introduction: "The question I was faced with on that day, and on many days since, was this: Will Jesus be enough, even now? Even when I don't understand? Even when the future I mapped out has been upended? Even ... In the years since that day, I've discovered that the answer to those questions is Yes, Jesus is enough."

We are living in hard days, and this book is an excellent tool for whatever hard situation you are facing, it will draw you in, you will relate to the anecdotes of the author's life, and others that she knows, and it is a huge blessing, as each of the 20 readings points you to a new way that God is present in all of life, and especially the angles of hard.

Each of the chapters focus on who God is in a different relatable aspect. The author shares truth from the Word of God, examples in life, a sample prayer, and ends each reflection with questions to answer, and a scripture to read and consider this aspect of who God is to YOU!

This book is directed to believers, who use the Bible, as a lens of how to see God in all of life, and as our life. If that perspective, isn't one you can embrace or be challenged with this book isn't for you. But for anyone willing to recognize that God is present even today and who needs reminders in those 'soul amnesia' moments we all have, it is for you. Thankful to partner with the Goodbook company and read an early release. It's a book worth owning and sharing with others.

“Objective Truth, Personal Experiences”

In a world that is harshly black and white or softly gray, Katie brings the objective truth of the Bible into the personal experiences of her own family. But she doesn't interpret the Bible by her experiences, but allows the Bible to interpret her life. But the examples and personal sharing makes the truth relevant, relational, and strengthening rather than just some pronouncements from on high. You will be encouraged to trust God's love even when the understanding of what he is doing may lie beyond the horizon line. I am thankful for this book.

“Heartfelt, poignant reading about God’s grace in our hard times”

Katie does a superb job of drawing you into her story as she walks through the difficult health diagnosis of her children while seamlessly showing how the truths uncovered can encourage and offer hope to anyone walking through hard times. A fabulous, Christ-centered read for anyone looking for those reminders of hope during their own journey through hard.

“Wonderful”

This is an absolutely wonderful book. The author very courageously shares her own personal story in a way that points others to the promises of God, to 'anchor the soul' in hard seasons. Highly recommended to all!

“A treasure for the suffering heart-”

This book is a treasure for anyone who is suffering. Katie weaves her own family story of difficult diagnoses, grief, and unanswered questions as she has sought to trust God in the midst of it all. Over the years,I have had the privilege of seeing Katie live these truths out real time. I did not realize the depth of their family struggles until I read these pages. I am spurred on in trusting that He truly is enough as I now know the fuller scope of their story through the pages of this book. Katie's heart in sharing her story in these pages is not to puff herself up but to point fellow sufferers (and we all are in some way or another living in this fallen world) to the only One who can carry us through our hardest days.
The format of this book makes it a perfect gift for those in the midst of crisis as the chapters are concise and not overwhelming. Scripture is woven throughout, pointing the reader to rich truths in God's word. Each chapter has journaling space to answer questions applying the truths shared. I've already given 4 copies away and this will definitely be a book to keep on hand to bring encouragement and comfort to others in the midst of life's hard.

“Encouraging for a Tough Time”

I think we all know as Christians that it can be really tough when life is hard to keep strong in our faith. And yet, Faris shows us that God takes us by the hand in those times and keeps us going. With twenty reflections that show you how God is always alongside you, this is such a good book for if you're feel like that's not the case right now. For me, it's a book I've had a skim through now, but will sit on my bookshelf for when those hard times come again. One more thing to note is the lovely feel of the book! It's a hardback with elastic around the cover and a fabric page marker to keep your place. As it's so smart, it would make a good gift for a Christian friend you knew was struggling. The questions have plenty of room underneath so it could be used like a journal.

“wonderful”

I have never heard of Katie Faris prior to this devotional but have confirmed that she is a great author and subsequently thoroughly enjoyed her newest book.

I love the structure of the book as it's very inviting straight from the beginning. The introduction is completed by Joni Eareckson Tada and filled with encouragement and wisdom. Immediately following, Faris dives into the twenty characteristics of God that we can lean on for strength through each day.

Each section is filled with Scripture and concludes with an exploration portion that provides questions for the reader to go a little deeper into the concepts discussed.

Although the chapters discuss God's character and aspects of His nature, Faris ultimately directs them towards the sufferings and weariness of our every day lives here on earth. Encourages us to seek and focus on Him in the midst of our troubles and hardships rather than the actual problem.

Faris weaves her own personal experiences into the chapters, relating them directly to God's characteristics that she learned to trust and believe were enough for her and her family.

The book is challenging and convicting in every chapter and pushes you to desire the Lord, to taste and see the Lord, in every aspect of our daily lives.

I receive a copy of this book from The Good Book Company in exchange for an honest review.
