You are sailing happily through life, enjoying every good blessing, until out of nowhere a storm crosses your path and wreaks unbelievable havoc:

  • your doctor schedules an appointment with to discuss some unsettling test results.
  • your company declares bankruptcy.
  • your oldest child is the victim of a drunk-driving accident.

Any number of surprises such as these can turn happiness into a nightmare, challenging your most foundational expectations about life.

But God's Spirit still hovers over the waters of your troubles, and you can find the comfort of his presence even when storm clouds obscure your vision. Bill Hybels, senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church and author of The God You're Looking For (Thomas Nelson), has experienced storms in his own life and as he has ministered to others. He brings pastoral wisdom and sensitivity to the issue of suffering and evil.

In this IVP Booklet, Hybels encourages you to bring your troubling experiences to God, to let God secure you to himself and deliver you through every storm of life.
