Living with Thorns
A Biblical Survival Guide
by Mary Ann Froehlich
Like the apostle Paul, do you have a thorn in your life that won’t go away—no matter how many times you’ve asked God to remove it? A strained relationship? A chronic illness? Bouts of depression or anxiety?
We are enamored with success stories: drug addictions overcome, crumbling marriages restored, inoperable cancer cured. What about the miraculous lives of those with visibly unchanged circumstances? In fact, many of God’s followers throughout the Bible lived “less than success” stories.
Mary Ann Froehlich comes alongside to offer comfort and tangible survival tools for fighting the despair that so often accompanies pain. Instead of asking Why? she invites you to ask Who? Who do we turn to when life becomes unbearable? As we turn to God, He speaks to us through our affliction and uses our thorns to draw us closer to himself.
