You and I face challenges, stresses, problems, decisions or frustrations in our daily walk. We deal with them as best we can, but we are hampered by our limited view of each situation. At ground level, we only see as far as the next bend in the road. On the other hand, God looks from high above and sees our life’s pathway from start to finish, including all the twists, turns, dangers and delays.
This book helps us gain relief from stress by seeing God’s perspective on the challenges that life throws us. Each of the episodes reveals a different problem and solution.
Meet Denny and Sue, a young Christian couple with two children, Conner and Ruth. In each episode, they face a variety of everyday problems and challenges in the form of disappointments, failed plans, temptation, unfair treatment, impossible situations, and more. You’ve no doubt experienced many of them yourself. With the help of Pastor Blake, they find a novel way to look at, and deal with, the day-to-day challenges that confront them.
It all revolves around what God tells us about himself. He says, “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts and my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9).
In the episodes in Volume 1 Denny and Sue find stress relief as they learn these life lessons, (#1) How to change your viewpoint, (#2) How to deal with disappointments, (#3) How to protect your rights, (#4) How to find plan B, (#5) How to cope with temptation, and (#6) How to respond to unfair treatment.
Volume 5 is designed for study groups and provides discussion questions for each of the episodes plus complete scripture indexes.
