Have you experienced the death of a loved one, loss of a job, divorce or even the loss of a dream? These losses can cause us so much grief and pain, but there is hope! The circumstances of grief are unique to each of us, but the need to apply God's gracious promises to each one of them is the same.
I recently read A Small Book for the Hurting Heart by Paul Tautges. This little book applies the healing balm of God’s Word to the wounds of our lives. This is where we find hope in the midst of grief.
In Tautges's book, you'll find 50 devotionals. Each brief devotional is filled with a message of hope, encouragement, and healing. He addresses the heart and faith struggles in the midst of our grief and dives deep into the issues of the heart as he presents comfort found in the character of God.
When no one understands what we are going through, Tautges reminds us Jesus knows. Jesus not only says, “I love you,” He says, “I love you, and I know. I know your hurts and losses. And I am here for you.” This is hope!
The pain that accompanies loss is not quick to subside. Therefore, read this small book slowly, one meditation a day. Each meditation ends with a suggested way to apply the Scriptural truth—I love that! You may find it helpful to keep a journal, as I did.
A Small Book for the Hurting Heart is for anyone who is experiencing the grief that accompanies any kind of loss. You're most likely thinking of someone who would benefit from this little book right now. Buy a copy for them, but keep a copy for yourself also for when sorrow and grief come to visit.
Grief may threaten to overtake us or destroy our joy. In this powerful devotional book, men and women will see Jesus Christ, the Man of Sorrows, who is well-acquainted with grief and sadness.
In fifty brief readings, your hurting heart will find spiritual help, encouragement, and healing as you experience the comfort of God.
“When we hurt and ask God ‘why?,’ we often are not looking for answers. Rather, our hearts are looking for comfort, encouragement, and Fatherly assurance that our world is not spinning out of control. In his new work, A Small Book for the Hurting Heart, my friend Paul Tautges points the reader to helpful insights from the best Answer of all, the Lord Jesus. Every page is filled with bite-sized wisdom from the Word of God, providing healing hope for every heart that hurts." —Joni Eareckson Tada
“Loss, grief, and sadness are common human experiences, and no less common in the Christian life. In seeking comfort, it can be extremely hard to find. That’s why I’m thankful for Paul Tautges’s new book, A Small Book for the Hurting Heart. In the course of fifty devotionals, Paul brings the hurting believer by the hand right into the pages of Scripture, and shows them where true comfort is to be found. He skillfully applies carefully selected verses to counsel the reader and ease their burden. I would encourage you to prayerfully give this book to those who are hurting, but keep a copy for yourself for when sorrows come.” —Nate Pickowicz
