Grumble Hallelujah ~ Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira

Ever feel so miserable that you wonder why GOD makes you go through this pain? Well this book is for you. If you are feeling down, depressed, and wondering why your love for GOD is not making you happy? This is a great helpful book that makes you look at your unhappiness in life and realize that GOD makes that happen to make you be closer to him.

This book has 15 chapters that covers a different situation for you to think about and work on in your daily life. This is a good self help book, daily devotional, or a good group bible study. Each chapter is about a 5 to 10 minute read, you are given a story that Caryn went through, then backed up with biblical explantions (along with scripture references) and then questions for you to review your own life and makes you realize that GOD is making you go through all this to make you closer to him. This book helps you work through unhappiness by learning to greive what you are going through and that GOD is with you and he is making this all happen for his glory, you have to go through the steps of greif, learning and becoming closer to GOD.

I really enjoyed this book and it helped me (as I am going through a difficult time) to realize it is ok to feel sad as long as I know I am getting closer to GOD.
