Linda Evans Shepherd in her new book, “When You Can’t Find God”  published by Revell teaches us How to Ignite the Power of His Presence.

Suppose you walked into work and they told you to go back home that they were downsizing immediately and let you go.  Suppose that you were given the news that your daughter, just coming home from college, was in a multi car collision and was killed.  Suppose that your son was beaten up by a gang and is in serious condition at the hospital with the doctors not having hope for his recovery.  What do you do on the day that the darkness seems to close in and win?  You go looking and can’t seem to find where is God.

Linda Evans Shepherd knows about those days, that stretch on for weeks, months and even years.  How do we deal with this?  In “When You Can’t Find God” Ms. Shepherd gives us chapters on “Finding God in your circumstances”, “Five Keys to surviving difficult times”, Giving Your Troubles To God”, “Praying Against The Spirit Of Strife” (everyone needs to read this chapter) and a few other chapters on what to pray for.  Each chapter ends with a “trip to the oasis” a psalm reading and then a “Prayer Experience”.  The end of the book has a bible study and discussion guide that is just wonderful to go through for a small group or individual study.  This is a book for the thirsty traveler in a very hot desert.  Refreshing!
