Kiss the Wave: Embracing God in Your Trials Read Online Free - Charles Spurgeon once said, "I have learned to kiss the wave that throws me against the Rock of Ages." In dark and difficult trials, we often long to be delivered from the pain--but Spurgeon's words describe his experience as one that has brought him to see the hand of God in his suffering. What if God intends to work through our suffering rather than simply take it away? After living for more than a decade with a debilitating nerve condition in both arms, Dave Furman wants to expand our view of suffering by demonstrating that God, in his grace, always designs and uses trials for our good. In the midst of the stormy waves of trials, we can stop flailing our arms and instead embrace the God who is near to us even as we suffer.
