Embracing God When It Hurts
What does it mean to “kiss the wave?” These words, attributed to nineteenth-century British preacher Charles Spurgeon, speak to the Christian’s only hope for perseverance in suffering.
What if we can learn to experience the nearness of God in the midst of suffering? What if God intends to work through our trials rather than simply take them away?
After living for more than a decade with a debilitating nerve condition in both arms, Dave Furman is eager to remind us of one life-changing fact: God, in his grace, always designs trials for our good.
In Kiss the Wave: Embracing God in Your Trials, Furman does not minimize our pain but rather infuses eternal significance into our suffering, highlighting the truth that, even when tossed to and fro by stormy waves, God is near.
And that makes all the difference in the world.

While Christians are never promised immunity from suffering, they are promised a purpose in the midst of it.
Suffering is not outside of God's control and he has a purpose for it.
Like a child going to a parent, we don't have to clean up our spiritual act to pour out our hearts to God.
