Patrick draws on his own experience of suffering to ask: Where is God in the pain? Things were going horribly wrong. Patrick's three children all faced serious health problems. His dad got cancer. He and his wife Diane lost a baby. When Patrick faced a series of excruciating operations to his knees, he realized his faith had been shaken. Patrick had always been a leader, a fixer, someone who made things happen. Feeling vulnerable, he started blogging and speaking openly. The response startled him, as people embraced his honesty. What Patrick has learned is to be fully present, moment by moment, so he can see what God is doing and allow himself to be seen in turn. He shows us how to emerge from our coping mechanisms, to stop pretending when we are running on empty, to see that in the dark times, someone is still holding on to us. "Our emotional well-being is as important as our physical," says Patrick. "I hope this book will help those going through tough challenges, so they can hear that quiet voice that says, 'Let's try again tomorrow.'"

Review:

'A moving story of courage and faith in the fire.’ (Bear Grylls 2015-02-12)

“There is something incredibly powerful happening when real people tell us the truth. It has the capacity to reach deep into our hearts and souls and bring about a transformation - not just an external shift but an internal awakening. Patrick asks a lot of questions in this book and shows us the wrestle of his own weakness. It's a beautifully deep, personal account of God’s mysterious way of using us in our weakness to show His power to the world. Weep and dance as you read, for this kind of Truth will set us free.” (Danielle Strickland, speaker, writer, and Salvation Army officer 2015-02-12)

"Patrick Regan is a remarkable leader and this is his best, most honest book yet." (Pete Greig 24-7Prayer, Emmaus Rd and Alpha International 2015-02-12)

“Like many of you, I have struggled with some of the paradoxes of the Christian faith - can I still believe in a God who is in control in the midst of chaos? can I worship a God who is good when he lets bad things happen to me and those I love? Patrick addresses some of these very paradoxes in his own story, and the result is a very personal and powerful struggle that will help many through their difficult times.” (Krish Kandiah, founder of Home for Good and president of London School of Theology 2015-02-12)

Book Description Lion Hudson Plc, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. What do you do when life falls apart, and it feels as if God has left you? How do you keep going when your faith is rocked to the core? Sometimes things get so hard we're not sure where God is - or what he's up to. For Patrick there was pain, illness, and loss in his family and community. Then a series of excruciating operations took him to the brink physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Writing during his journey of recovery, Patrick explores how we find God in times of suffering. He wrestles with how we can know God's peace when life is anything but peaceful, what the true nature of courage is, how we allow ourselves the grace to rest when we're running on empty, and how we can stay fully present in the moment - all so we can ultimately grasp the love of God at a deeper level.
