As Silver Refined: Learning to Embrace Life's Disappointmentsby Kay Arthur
Synopses & Reviews
ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED THAT LIFE ISN'T TURNING OUT LIKE YOU PLANNED? HOW DO YOU RESPOND when your husband or wife tramples your emotions? When your boss fires you unexpectedly? Whenyou lose your life's savings? When the child you've loved and prayed for turns his back on you and your values? When disappointments like these smash their way into your life, you may want to scream, "How could God let this happen?"
BUT WHAT IF GOD didn't just "let it happen"? What if the things you call disappointments are reallyHis appointments - events He is using to make you more like Christ? What if He is using your disappointments like flames to melt and burn away the undesirable elements in your life, leaving you pure and radiant- like refined silver?
YOU CAN BE DEFEATED by life's unavoidable disappointments, or you can become stronger because of them. Kay Arthur paints a graphic pictureof the dangerous downward spiral of disappointment that can lead to discouragement, depression, or even despair. But you can learn to break that cycle and embrace disappointment with a faith that recognizes the trials oflife as tools that God uses to make you - as silver refined — a reflection of His goodness.
