Book Review of
Kiss the Wave Embracing God In Your Trials
What does it mean to “kiss the wave?” These words, attributed to nineteenth-century British preacher Charles Spurgeon, speak to the Christian’s only hope for perseverance in suffering. What if we can learn to experience the nearness of God in the midst of suffering? What if God intends to work through our trials rather than simply take them away?
After living for more than a decade with a debilitating nerve condition in both arms, Dave Furman shows us that God, in his grace, always designs trials for our good—not minimizing the pain, but infusing significance into our suffering. Furman demonstrates that, even when tossed to and fro by stormy waves, God is near . . . and that makes all the difference in the world.
Life is full of trials. Kiss the Wave by Dave Furman helps show you how to embrace these trials with grace, while giving God the glory for them. What I loved about this book was that the author is sharing his story of suffering with a debilitating nerve condition in both of his arms. He shares his experiences and how God has given him the strength to face each day with debilitating pain.
