When God Turned Off the Lights: True Stories of Seeking God in the Darknessby Cecil Murphey
Synopses & Reviews
During such periods of spiritual blackout, we feel as if we’ve been put on hold, and we wait for God to get back on the line. We know it will be wonderful when the light comes back on and drives away the darkness, but we want it now, not later. Cecil Murphey has journeyed through this darkness on three separate occasions during his many years following Christ, with each time being more difficult than the last. He suggests that we have three choices when the lights go out: (1) we can give up, (2) we can examine ourselves for sin or failure, or (3) we can accept that God has hidden His face from us for a purpose. In When God Turned Off the Lights, he shows how each of us can make the most of our time on hold by pondering the mysteries of God’s character, confident that He will turn on the lights once again.
In this resource, Murphey explains how Christians can make the most of their spiritual blackouts by pondering the mysteries of God's character, confident that He will turn the lights on once again.
