Have circumstances in your life overwhelmed you to the point you feel you've been knocked off a horse mid–stride and can't breathe? I have, over and over. I call these life's storms.
Storms in life can hit hard and fast. They might blow out as quickly as they blow in. Or they could hammer long and hard, like hurricanes. It's even possible for multiple storms to strike simultaneously, leaving you in a state of despair, where you believe giving up is your only option.
Regardless of the type, size, or duration of the storm, hope remains. All storms pass. The way you handle them determines if you come out bitter or better. There are steps you can take to keep calmer, prevent damage, and keep your sanity during the storm. I call these steps "keys."
Whether your storm is a major loss, a temporary battle, or a fiery dart from our enemy, the devil, the first step is to identify the storm. Without recognizing a storm, you can't implement the keys in this book. So let's take a look at some examples of storms we might encounter in life.
Have you ever been excited about something, only to have it all fall apart? Do you wish you could go back in time to avoid misery?
Steve Fellers understands. When he set off on a long bus ride to go pick up a gift car in another state, what was supposed to be a blessing turned into exhausting delays, crimes, sirens, and accidents. While others might have given up, Steve discovered at the end of it all that blessings can be found even in the midst of pain and sacrifice.
In this modern-day memoir, discover how several grim mishaps culminated in a glorious mission.
