When Prayer Can Make Anxiety Worse

I have often been guilty of running to God in prayer when anxious, pouring out my worries and fears to Him. This is right and good, but the problem is I stop there.

BOOK REVIEW: WOUNDS ARE WHERE THE LIGHT ENTERS

Wounds are Where Light Enters by Walter Wangerin, Jr. (Zondervan Publishing; 2017)

Walter Wangerin is a well-known Christian writer who uses his unique for storytelling and the use of dramatic and fictional elements (like his work THE BOOK OF GOD, a retelling of God’s redemption woven throughout the Bible as one story). This book, however, is more of anthology of short stories — many autobiographical — with the theme of the little (and sometimes big) ways that God can intervene in our daily lives. Stories such as Wangerin taking his small daughter to the largest cathedral in New York City,and using the appearance of a slovenly homeless man to teach a valuable lesson on how man makes many poor choices, but God is always watching over us and reminding that redemption is always possible. For readers who enjoy authors such as Max Lucado and his storytelling expertise to teach spiritual lessons, Wounds are Where Lighta Enter is a worthwhile read. 3 stars.
