It'll Be Okay Cover UPDATE1Is it okay for Christians to doubt?

When we don’t get answers or see God’s guiding hand, it’s hard to keep praying or walking forward in faith. Difficult times often cloud our perspective. Does God see me? Does he hear me? Does he care? Many Christians confuse doubt with unbelief and are afraid to admit those fears, but God is not threatened by our questions, and doubt does not negate our faith.

Our doubts express a yearning to be sure of what—and who—we trust. When our questions are answered by trust, faith is fed and our doubts transform into deeper belief that pushes us toward a decision.

· When we address doubt head-on, faith can grow.

· God has a plan in the good and bad that life brings.

· God can heal our wounds and turn our past mistakes around.

Join nationally-known Bible teacher Sheryl Giesbreacht Turner as she guides you toward a deeper understanding of the role doubt plays in your spiritual growth—and how learning to ‘doubt your doubts’ enables faith to prevail.

It’ll Be Okay…Really!

When I began reading this book, I was a bit reluctant because the subtitle to this book is “Finding God when doubt hides the truth” and I didn’t think I was struggling with any of that.  As I began to read, I found out that this book is applicable to any and all situations and while reading the book, I faced some challenges that made this book a lifeline to me.  Sheryl Giesbrecht Turner’s easy way of relating and writing made me feel like I was sitting at my table having tea with a friend.  She shares her faith journey and her life in a genuine and helpful way. Rich with scripture, she relates stories from the Bible into battles you may be facing and she sets the stage for you to further investigate your own doubt and then to fully restore your faith in Him whom you can believe. Sheryl Giesbrecht Turner gives you permission to be totally honest and doubt and then brings you back to a place of rest and peace.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own. I hope you will take some time with this book and be guided into biblical truths in a positive way.

More from Sheryl

I’ve always been the one to ask the questions. As a kindergartener, I embarrassed my mother when I inquired, “Where did I come from?” Years passed, as a teenager, I made unhealthy life choices, experimented with alcohol and street drugs, and wondered, “What am I here for?” As a young adult, in Bible College; I asked God to take control of my life and questioned, “What’s my purpose?” Maybe you, too, have had or now have questions? These concerns may even keep you up at night? Doubting ourselves or God may be criticized as a lack of faith. I disagree. Doubt is the in between. Doubts need to be addressed. If doubts are not considered, they will rot our faith from the inside out. When we doubt, we are able to be honest with ourselves and God. We should not be afraid to doubt.

As a delivered drug addict, stage four cancer survivor, and former widow, I’ve faced many types of situations which caused me to question God’s love, goodness and compassion. As I have gone to His word, I’ve discovered He hasn’t changed, His word continues to speak and revives my faith, taking me to a deeper level every single time. I am reminded of this in Lamentations 3:21-24 (NIV) Yet this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”

Thank you so much for being part of this blog tour. I am excited about what God is going to do with His truth in us as we bring our questions to the Answer – Jesus.

Love and prayers, Sheryl Giesbrecht Turner
