This devotional book follows the author's own faith journey back to God. Significant life events can shake our world and distort our faith. Following life's tragedies, a common reaction is to become angry with God or to reject Him altogether. Examples of tragedies or traumas include life-changing events such as physical or sexual assault, destruction of one's home, the tragic death of a loved one, diagnoses of terminal diseases, divorce, miscarriages, or being a victim of a crime. Tragedies or traumas can cause feelings of anxiety, depression, shame, and guilt. After major tragedies, an individual may be locked in an unhealthy pattern of behavior due to depression and anger. Peacefulness is not within the heart of a person having difficulty with the aftermath of a tragedy. Getting past the event may take years and be fraught with sadness. This book provides a unique approach to recovering from tragedy by incorporating Scripture and guiding the reader to strengthen their faith. In this devotional book, the reader will be able to assess their own progress along the pathway back to God. Explanations of the relationship of anxiety, depression, shame, and guilt are provided. Although there are many self-help therapeutic books and resources, this devotional book presents suggestions for coping with tragedies and regaining faith. Along each step of the journey, meaningful Scriptures are provided to help the reader connect back to their faith and to become closer to God.
