As difficult as times have become, we can find lasting peace in God who loves and cares for us. He Holds Us Up on Sidewalk Cracks: Poems of God's Presence in Unprecedented Times is a book of poems reflective of those painful moments that creep, more often, barge into our lives. We can be victorious. We can find contentment. We can move beyond the imperfections and brokenness in our paths as we rely on our perfect God who sees us, guides us, and holds us up when we slip.
He Holds Us Up on Sidewalk Cracks: Poems of God's Presence in Unprecedented Times is a book of poetry reflective of the era we may find ourselves moving, at times, gingerly through. This collection of poetry points out current social views, world scenarios, and individual struggles to bring to light God's loving preservation. These present-day occurrences ask us to consider God's unfailing mercy and sovereignty and to accept the peace He offers even in disturbing times. Snapshots of raw or painful experiences highlight God's grace and constant presence. Readers, at any stage of life, can find comfort and hope beyond the cracks and crevices they may step over, teeter atop, or inadvertently trip on.
