Hi friends! And Happy New Year. This is my first reading post of 2021, and it’s about a book that I really enjoyed. Breathe Again by Stacy Henagan is uplifting and inspiring.
Below you’ll find the description of the book provided by NetGalley, followed by my personal review and star rating.
Enjoy, and as always…thank you for stopping by. 🏝
What Do You Do When It Seems God Hasn’t Come Through for You?
When the miracle-working God whom Pastor Stacy Henagan loved and served did not answer the prayers on behalf of her terminally ill one-year-old daughter as expected, she was left crushed with grief and struggling to understand.How could a loving God allow this to happen?What do you do when it seems God has let you down?Is God trustworthy?
Rather than choosing to remain in overwhelming pain and doubt, Stacy emerged with a much greater belief that God is good and trustworthy, even when we don’t think His plans make sense.
My Review :
In Breathe Again, Stacy Henagan walks us through one of her darkest moments…but she somehow manages to keep it inspiring and full of faith.
If I had to walk that same journey, I’m not sure I’d be able to maintain the dignity that she did.
I believe in Jesus – but I’m not sure my faith is strong enough some days to keep me from flinging myself over the edge…then again, I haven’t done that yet – so maybe it is.
One of the things she said that stopped me in my tracks was “God didn’t bring me through what I’ve endured for me to remain silent.” I believe with all my heart that most of the battles and struggles we go through are so that we can help others when they go through similar situations, 100% to my core believe that.
My husband and I have been through some things in our marriage – and I think we could help others, but I get caught up in the thinking that no one really cares what I have to say.
For Stacy to so bravely share her story really resonated with me. She is a refreshing voice, and I hope she will write more in the future.
I hope you have an amazing day! Be sure to visit often for more book reviews.
