As I am going through a deep inner and outer trial, I chose a book for my next blog book review that I thought would be a key to helping me out of the pit I seemed to be in.
Boy, was that an assumed understatement!
Hopelifter, by Kathe Wunnenberg, lifted my hopes and set me on a path out of this pit. It will take fighting each step of the way. She does an amazing job in relaying her own struggles, but also, in giving the reader the remedy for hopelessness. This being: to find our hope in God alone, and then to give that hope to others. From the Gospel, to meals, to notes, to offering your time and resources, Kathe lays down the foundation to being able to think outside of your own hurt and pain. It is so easy to get self centered through our valleys. To only be able to think about ourselves. The key to healing is exactly what Kathe Wunnenberg says. But it isn't only words. She has lived this example in her life and gives tangible ways to be a hopelifter.
I'm thankful for her candid and refreshing encouragement and admonitions. Now to just do it! By God's grace.
