Most people see trouble as something negative and seek to avoid it whenever possible. But what if it’s those troubles that actually lead to greater blessing and purpose? In The Blessing of Adversity, a retired U.S. Navy admiral and the 62nd chaplain of the U.S. Senate distills the wisdom gained from thirty years as a counselor, theologian, and psychologist. Barry Black offers a blueprint for removing the sting of life’s trials, showing us how to let God use our pain for his glory by blessing others—and how that can actually help heal our own pain. Drawing on Scripture and his own experiences as a counselor and chaplain to some of the most powerful people in the world, Black teaches us how to deal with seasons of God’s apparent silence, offers techniques for staying encouraged in the middle of life’s storms, and shows how to find advantages in adversity.

Review~ This is a wonderful book of overcoming anything and still drawing on God and scripture to make it thru anything! I found this a great read! Its a great message of how finding your God given purpose in life's troubles will keep you going. No matter what you are going thru you will make it out of the dark and into the light with God's help!

disclosure: Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my review.

Sounds like a great book. Sometimes bad things aren't always "bad" if we look at them through God's eyes ;)

I'm following from the hop.
