Daily Reflections That Shine Light on Personal Darkness

Ninety Days of God's Goodness:
Daily Reflections That Shine Light on Personal Darkness
By Randy Alcorn
(Multnomah Books, 2011)

Life throws challenges at us, evil and suffering is seen everywhere, so many hardships happen in our daily lives. When we face the challenges life throws, our view of God’s can become cloudy. We easily lose sight of His purpose, presence, kindness, and love.
In 90 Days of God’s Goodness, Randy Alcorn gives us daily readings that help shine light into the darkness that is surrounding us. He uses Scripture with short articles about real people, including his own experience, to help us see that God is still there and will help us through this dark time in our life. You can read each entry in about 5-10 minutes.  Each daily devotion emphasizes a different subject, such as: #6—Suffering Is No Accident; #14—Our Refuge and Strength; #29 Shared Suffering; #36—God’s Purpose Prevails;  #49—Surrendering to God’s Wisdom; #55—Trusting God’s Plan; #71—Peace and Joy in Adversity; #80—God’s Tears.
Alcorn shares with us that we need to be prepared for the trials that will come into our lives before they come. He stresses that when life is calm, we should take time during that stage to deepen and strengthen our faith for the challenges that will come. We shouldn’t wait until suffering comes to start learning to face it.
I requested this book, because of who the author is and the subject. Whatever you are going through in your life right now, this book will help you. Alcorn shows us in this short 90 day book how to face our life full, with courage and joy. I give this book 5-star s.
