A Friend In The Storm

Want to share God's hope with a hurting friend?

How does A Friend in the Storm by Cheryl Ricker encourage others?

It addresses readers' deepest questions and feelings. "God, if you're so loving, why did you let this happen?"

What's more, it offers Christ's patient answers as He identifies with their pain.

Describing His own love and suffering, Christ paints a big-picture perspective of time and eternity, always drawing people closer to experience His love.

As readers visit with God in A Friend in the Storm, they will:

Ponder truth distilled from over forty essential hope-related topics,
Be a peace that God is helping their suffering loved ones,
Learn to trust God and find inner healing,
Be softened by Christ's compelling explanations of life,
Desire heaven, and know with certainty it's their eternal home, and
Enjoy a non-threatening gift they can share with others.

In tough times we turn to the Psalms because poetry is so personal, powerful and pure.

Soothing words from Christ's point of view dispel people's disillusionment by fanning reader's faith to hope in God's sovereignty, mystery, and perfect timing.

Here is just a sample of what you will find inside this wonderful gift book:


Why would a God who loves so strong
allow this blow of senseless wrong
enwrap me in this shock of pain
that tries to snuff what's kept me sane?

With failing strength, I'm struck down low,
so where's this peace supposed to flow?
Inside this hole where dreaming dies
beneath bare groans and screaming cries?

What a wonderful thing to know, to remember,
to remind yourself of when you feel overwhelmed with
busyness or with pain. You don't have to come to
him quiet. You just need to come to him. - Emilie Barnes

I pour out my complain before him;
before him I tell my trouble. - Psalm 142:2

I received this wonderfully refreshing book, A Friend in the Storm, by Cheryl Ricker, compliments of Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. I think everyone would love to have this simply gift book to have when life hands us the unexpected or as a gift to a friend enduring their own personal storm. What a comfort and encouragement it is to draw comfort not only from a poem but a personal scripture that goes right to the heart of what that person is experiencing and drawing them closer to God who understands exactly what we are going through.
