When Rivadeneira was disappointed by life, she didn't feel like shouting a hallelujah. But then it occurred to her . . . maybe she could grumble one! Sharing candid stories and inspiring Scripture, she encourages you to stop blaming yourself, circumstances, or God for the challenges you face---and praise him for things that make your life worth living.
I am sure we have all had that time when we really don’t feel like shouting for joy, but we know that joy is not supposed to be dependant on what we feel like.
This book focuses on the age old question of how to find God in the midst of suffering.
And it does it well.
The book is a great mixture of real life examples, and practical applications. Each chapter contains a little bit of both.
The author makes her story both interesting, and inspiring, without becoming too preachy or holier-than-thou.
I was a little worried it might seem too trite, but altogether it delivers on what it promises.
I think it is saved by how honestly the author opens up about her own shortcomings and difficulties. It makes it very heartfelt, and relevant.
3 stars out of 5.
