I didn´t ask to be gold - Victory through Faith in the Furnace of Affliction
Kim A. Petit
Publisher: Ediciones Verbo Vivo
I Didn't Ask to Be Gold was born out of one family's experience of pain and faith, to encourage all who suffer and struggle to both keep and grow their faith through the storms of life. In this book you will find honest answers to questions such as: Why doesn't God seem to answer me? Why does He allow physical and emotional suffering in my family? Is it possible to overcome trials? Can I overcome a crisis of faith? Where will I find comfort? Is there power in prayer? Is spiritual warfare real? This book will help you discover that when you suffer, there are people around you whom God uses to help you feel His embrace.
"I cried when I read Patty's story, because I know it is true. That's how Patty is… and I'd like to be like her, putting bitterness aside. The Bible puts it this way: "Keep a sharp eye out for weeds of bitter discontent." (Heb. 12:15, MSG) I want to have Patty's attitude. In suffering, she chose to give thanks, turn to God, and find strength in Him". Kim A. Pettit
