When the Hurt Runs Deep by Kay Arthur

Healing and Hope for Life's Desperate Moments

Does your grief or disappointment seem overwhelming? At some point in life, every one of us will face the dark pain of heartache and despair, a hurt that pierces so deep we're left gasping with questions:

Why me? Why now?
What have I done to deserve this?
Will the pain ever go away?
How can God just stand by and let this happen?
What do I have left to hope for?

Writing from insights she has gained, not only through her own valleys of deep hurt but also from years of study and counseling others through their pain, Kay Arthur points the way toward genuine healing. With candor, grace, and vulnerability, she invites you to join her on a journey toward wholeness as you exchange your fears and frustrations, hurts and disappointments for a hope that will never disappoint. Learn powerful principles to guide you to the light of redemption and hope.

My Review:
Into every life some rain must fall, and we all will have or have already experienced pain. I found that Kay Arthur has had her share of storms too. This makes her capable to advising how to cope. Using the Bible, Arthur talks about a variety of hurts.

I especially found her discussion of suicide quite informative when helping loved ones cope with the deep hurt of this loss.

A Study Guide and Meditation Journal are included.

Thank you to Laura Tucker at WaterBrook Press for my copy.

I read and reviewed this book last year and need to get it back out again at this time in my life.
