Dr. Ruby Wilson, Safe Haven United Church of Christ, New York Current events continually challenge our relationships, trouble our minds, and cause us to question our faith. But it's wonderful to know that the Word of God is available to us in times of trouble. We have a blessed assurance that no matter how hard life may seem, there is a God whose love transcends both time and space. Meditations for Tough and Testing Times is full of messages that provide strength for when life brings more adversity than we think we can handle. These thoughtful contemplations address our struggle with these uncertain times and our need to connect with God. We are reminded that this connection is best achieved through God's Word as revealed to us by the Bible and God's Son, Jesus Christ. May God renew your faith and restore your joy as you reflect on the treasures in Meditations for Tough and Testing Times.
