A Woman's Pilgrimage of Faith: A Daily Guide for Prayer and Spiritual Maturity
Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith.... Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.
--Hebrews 10:21-24 Every Christian experiences times when faith is hard to come by. When God seems as remote as the deliverance we seek. These times of spiritual crisis can deeply alter your life--for better or for worse. With this book Sheila Cragg wants to guide you in making it a change for the better, one day at a time. Whether your spiritual pilgrimage has just begun or you are well on your journey with God, the sensitive perspective, daily Bible study, tender prayer times, and the journaling within these pages can help you work through the emotions of a spiritual crisis--whenever it comes--and develop a deeper faith. A faith that can deal with heartache, doubt, and despair, and yet maintain its trust in God. When you're in spiritual shock, this book will show you how to safely endure it. When denial comes, you'll discover how to be realistic about your pain and still place your confidence in the Lord. When you feel angry, here is help for keeping that anger from controlling and destroying you. If you experience guilt or shame, you'll encounter the good news of spiritual restoration, repentance, and freedom. When you come up against despair, you'll learn how God can give you a new hope in your walk with Him. And ultimately, you'll discover that not only is Christ the redeemer of your soul, but of your earthly sorrows, too. The one who gives your spiritual recovery possibility, your peace a reality, your suffering meaning--and your pilgrimage a purpose.
