Kiss The Wave
Kiss the Wave: Embracing God in Your Trials
By Dave Furman. 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 shows us that God, in his grace, always designs trials for our good—not minimizing the pain, but infusing significance into our suffering. Furman demonstrates that, even when tossed to and fro by stormy waves, God is near. Dave and his wife, Gloria, have four children. But if you want a book that is realistic about years of chronic pain and debilitating depression, yet drives you toward the comforts of Christ and his gospel, read this book.
N one of us makes it through life without suffering. None of us escapes physical pain, emotional distress, or spiritual agony. At some times and in some ways, we all suffer. No wonder, then, that so many authors have turned to the subject. As Christians, we are well-served with books to help us suffer well and books that help us grapple with the deeper theological questions that inevitably arise in the midst of our darkness.

Her love for the Lord and obedience to His call of teaching and writing is so inspiring. And she has the gift of deep intelligence which she uses to bring glory to God. I love that the Bible studies she writes are peppered with historical information, Greek and Hebrew word studies, and quotes from theologians and well known Christians of modern day and the past. The school year has begun and the hint of fall is whispering in the breeze and scattered raindrops. And yet, I still find myself mulling over one quote in particular from the section we did on Psalms of Lament.
