Book Review - Facing Trials: Thoughts for Meditation


This thought provoking devotional, inspired by one woman’s 10 year battle with depression, reminds readers that though trouble and hardships befall God’s children, it is through trials that our relationship with God deepens. Full of hope, encouragement and instruction, there are two devotions for each of the 20 selected topics. Every meditation has a scriptural foundation with plenty of ideas for personal contemplation and reflection, for the fruit of trials is the comfort found in God.


I found this book to be so helpful and comforting! I have been through a lot of trials over the past few years and it does start to wear down my hope. Sometimes it's hard to know what to do or what Scriptures to meditate on. This book solves that problem and is so full of wonderful encouragement!

I really liked that the book is broken down into sections regarding things that could be bothering one. Whatever you find yourself struggling with, this book probably has the help you need. There are twenty chapters and some of the titles are, "Facing Trials", "Broken", "Endurance and Perseverance", and "Healing". Each chapter gives instruction, encouragement and wisdom to help us deal with the situations we may find ourselves in or that we're trying to get past. There are Scriptures for each chapter to meditate on and put in our hearts.

I highlighted so much of this book! I found the wisdom and comfort of this book so wonderful! It has helped me to heal in so many ways and it will definitely be a book I refer back to time and again when I'm feeling the need to get that comfort I need. The book is very Biblical and definitely pointed me back time and again to God's Word. I really loved this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
