Blindsided by God

Blindsided by God is an interesting book.

The author, Peter Chin, shares the story of how his life of faith was brought to a low point over just a few months.  A miscarriage, a breast-cancer diagnosis and a break and entering were just some of the suprises that brought the Chin family to re-evaluate disappointment, suffering and the untamable goodness of God.

As I read their story, I found myself asking how I would have responded to this steady does of unexpected and often discouraging news.  I can't say my reactions would have been much different.  Yet in all of this, there were slivers of hope.  You could still see the Hand of God moving in their life. 

I won't spoil the biggest miracle of all but let's just say, God knows what He is doing.

Let's face it, if we are honest with ourselves, we probably have felt blindsided by God.  What we do with our dissapointment and suffering is the key.  Can we still see the goodness of God?   I would recommend this book for anyone who feels abandoned by God when life seems overwhelming.
