John Townsend Offers Hope for the Hurting

"Where Is God?" How many of us have asked this when going through trying situations. John Townsend, psychologist, author and speaker, offers answers in his new book, Where Is God? Finding His Presence, Purpose, and Power in Difficult Times.

"God has not left you twisting in the wind, nor is He playing hide-and-seek," Townsend says. "He wants to be present with you and powerful for you in your circumstances. He may bring a miracle. He may create a new path. And He may walk with you through a loss. But however your hard time plays out, He is here. He is for you and with you, no matter your struggle."

Townsend offers stories, real-life examples and practical applications to help readers renew their courage, faith and hope. Following is an excerpt from Where Is God? (Click here to purchase this book.)

A Hope More Than Wishing

You and I need hope in God. Hope is one of the most powerful agents we have available to us in times like these. It can be simply defined as the anticipation of a future good that we do not now experience. Hope helps us hold on and not give in to despair, even if we don't see the positive evidence we desire to see. read more

By John Reuben | Gotee Records

Sex, Drugs and Self-Control is John Reuben's sixth studio album, and he isn't afraid to tell it like it is.

It's only in that place that spiritual disciplines feel like an authentic expression instead of rigid censorship. In a lot of ways this record is a confession of faith and lack thereof." read more
