Hurt - Stories Between - Hope

by Dennis Cook

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
There’s still HOPE! Many people daily live in the messy goo somewhere between Hurt and Hope. 
Some days we feel we are on top of the world and other days the world is on top of us. Some days we feel God is good and other days we're feeling he’s a thug, threatening us; “If we don’t straighten up, bad things are coming our way.” 
Nobody gets a “hall pass” to skip hurt. Some have hurt you, without you signing on the dotted line. Some have hurt themselves, feeling not worthy enough to give or receive love from God or others. Sometimes, “stuff just happens!“ While sharing hope with one guy, he confessed; “Dennis, keep moving on to the next dude. Don’t waste your time on me I’m unredeemable. I’ve made peace with my hurt and a life without hope. It’s just easier that way.”
 This book is a batch of short stories about people just like you, feeling one-day God is “The Man” and the next, not so much. 
My desire is that you will see There’s Still Hope even if hurt keeps heckling you: “Don’t waste your time on me, I’m unredeemable.” My prayer is, in reading these stories you will find hope by eaves dropping on others as they search for theirs
