This is the story of a father's struggle to make sense of the untimely deaths of three of his children. The early chapters talk about the children and who they were. What follows is Alex's explanation and teaching with how he was able to overcome being offended and angry and even bitter. After spending several months in prayer and intimate time with Father God, Alex gained a new perspective and a new way of life, a new purpose and a new vision.
The teaching in this book is profound, yet amazingly simple. Alex has found that God's ways are usually very logical and very simple. We struggle with the simplicity of God's word and are prone to trying to add to it and make it more complicated. In this book are teachings about being offended, praying in the Spirit, hearing the voice of the Lord, basking in His presence and understanding the word and the Holy Spirit. This book is life changing and grants the leader new insight into understanding God and His word.
Alex has seen a great response to the message of this book. The teachings were born in his prayer closet in the intimate presence of the Father. Many times, over and over, God told Alex that as a matter of survival, for him to make it through the trauma, he must stay in the presence of God; the sweet, intimate, loving and healing presence of the Father. It took several months, but slowly God's healing salve began to heal up the wounds and eventually there was very little scarring. After all these months spent in prayer, God finally began the process of teaching. The heart was healing fine, the anger and bitterness were gone and Alex was open to let God speak to him and teach him the next chapter of his life.
This new chapter is exciting. Seeing lives changed and delivered from the pain and suffering of loss is exciting and humbling at the same time. One of the things that matters so much to the hurting is knowing that Alex actually knows how they feel and can minister to them from the other side of the fence and lead them from pain and suffering to healing and wholeness with a new perspective and a new life.
I'm sure you're going to find this book to be very emotional, inspirational, spiritual and informational. Let the Father speak to you as you read this book. You may not be suffering from trauma, but the odds are that you will someday and in the meantime it can help you to understand what others are going through. Actually understanding the suffering of others elevates you to a position where you can minister to them with godly compassion. From tragedy to triumph is a proclamation of victory and overcoming, something we all need more of.
