Disappointed dreams, broken relationships, identity crises, vocational hang-ups, wounds from the past— there are so many ways life can send us crashing up against the rocks.
So when life leaves you shipwrecked, what can you do? In Help Is On the Way, excerpted from his full-length book How To Survive a Shipwreck, author and pastor Jonathan Martin draws from his own shipwreck experiences to uncover how God meets us in our most critical moment, and exactly what we need to hang on until morning. Through fresh biblical insights and strong practical truth, Help Is On the Way will illuminate:
- How to practice self-care in the midst of a shipwreck (and why this is not selfish)
- What to hold on to at all costs, and what to let go
- How to gain clarity, composure, and a new way of knowing God on the other side of the storm
- Where God’s love is in all of this—even the hard parts
