‘Tis The Season For A Christmas Gift That Delivers Hope

Posted by on Dec 11, 2013 in Cynthia's Book - God's Provision in Tough Times | 2 comments

Alas, the words to one of our favorite Christmas songs – “’tis the season to be jolly” – ring hollow this year.  What we all need is a Christmas gift that delivers hope.

Unless you’ve been playing possum, you know how bad things are:  people are not only losing their health insurance, but many are unable to afford to purchase new health coverage.  Numerous businesses are cutting employee’s work hours in order to comply with the healthcare law and still remain in business.  And millions of people are either unemployed or underemployed.

Are you plagued with problems?  Are you scared?  Worried?  Dreading the future?  Do you know someone who is unemployed, or who has lost their health insurance?  Do you know young college graduates who are underemployed because they can’t find a job in their major or who can’t afford to purchase health insurance?

When adversity enters our lives, our situation can look hopeless, and we wonder if our lives will ever improve and return to normal.  We get so caught up in anxiety and fear that we forget there is One who can help us with our every need.

In the anthology book I co-authored with La-Tan Roland Murphy—God’s Provision in Tough Times—the twenty-five true stories were written to help people who are in the midst of struggles.  Each story demonstrates how God worked—often in incredible ways—to help the writers successfully get through their crushing situations.  Some writers found themselves in circumstances so bad that it would have been easier to give up than to keep going.  But rather than quit, they turned to their faith in a God who promises  to provide for each believer’s every need.

  1. I have read the book and I agree with Cynthia that this book would be a great gift. I read one chapter a day and for twenty five days. This is a great read.
