This warm and welcoming book is a perfect companion for anyone experiencing the recurrence of an illness, addiction, or other serious life problem. It offers inspiration and renewed faith and hope.
For people who've worked hard to overcome an
addiction or adopt a healthy, positive lifestyle, a
new addiction or a second descent into illness
can also represent personal failure. Even more
disturbing to those of us facing a repeated crisis
is the initial impact it may have on our faith and
relationship with God. When we find ourselves facing
again the very thing that we've counted on God to
prevent, we can feel betrayed. Shock, disbelief,
rage, blame--all these feelings can come to bear
These pages explore all of these feelings and
examine how people in the grip of repeat tragedy
experienced the event, faced their circumstances,
learned to cope, and found their way to a stronger
faith and deeper trust in God. Using life stories,
biblical profiles, and illustrations from our culture,
each chapter will define and describe a stage or
emotion in the experience of a second tragedy.
At the end of each chapter are a prayer conversation
with God, questions for reflection, suggested Bible
readings, and activities designed to assist in dealing
with a return tragedy.
