Who among us has not cried, as the Prophet Joseph, “O God, where art thou?” and perhaps heard the tender whisperings of the Spirit, “All these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good”? Indeed, it is often through enduring our deepest trials that we gain our greatest strength.
Adversity is about trials and sorrow, but it is also about happiness, blessings and perspective. Elaine Cannon discusses why adversity is necessary and how we can find the blessings behind it by turning negative attitudes into positive actions. She explains how to feel hopeful again, how to cope with things that cannot be changed, and how to flourish despite trials.This comforting volume offers precious insights on adversity, “the price we pay to become acquainted with God and his will.”
This book truly changed my life. I was dealing with almost more than I could endure of trials when I discovered this little book called “Adversity.” You wouldn't think it from the title, but the book is full of hope. Elaine Cannon, who suffered many trials herself, speaks candidly about suffering but with such a positive perspective that you can't help but be lifted. Wonderful, wonderful book!
