When life hasn't turned out as we hoped it would, it's easy to let negative attitudes dominate our thoughts-discouragement, confusion, unbelief, and even bitterness and cynicism. To cope, we often run ahead of God in an effort to change circumstances-or we even run away from Him. But the cure for lost hope is to draw near to God and let Him renew and heal our hearts and restore our faith. Drawing on scriptural teaching, Dutch Sheets shows what God wants to reveal to his children during difficult times. The barren places can become the holy places, just as Moses' 40 years in the desert culminated in God revealing Himself within the burning bush. God wants to stir our faith during hard times and show Himself in ever greater ways so that we are transformed, renewed and ready to go to new levels of service for Him.
