A Biblical Response to Loss
The subject of loss affects every sphere of life. Many experience the trauma of losing a job, the collapse of a marriage, the loss of friends and family, the pain of never feeling loved or a long held dream and hope left unrealised. This sense of profound loss, even failure, leaves a gaping vacuum in our lives that if left unhealed can result in pain, despair and negativity, separating us from a meaningful relationship with God and others.
Aimed at encouraging the reader this book provides a reference point to move forward from a place of emptiness. The author demonstrates from scripture how to overcome mindsets built upon the past and find practical steps to experiencing a fresh hope for the future. There are pointers in this book that will help you find a new perspective to view yourself as someone treasured by God – to find a way forward and set you on a path to recover that which the locust has eaten.
