How would you react if you opened your front door expecting to see your loved one there but were instead met by state troopers telling you your loved one has died in a car accident? What if your child were born with a birth defect? If you lost your job or your home burned down?Your first reaction would probably not be to thank God. Even over a period of years, you might still be haunted by one question: Why? How could God allow such bad things to happen? In this thought-provoking book, Russ Irwin tackles this topic and encourages readers to change their viewpoint.Through an example of a couple who has lost their daughter balanced with a discussion of Ephesians 5:20, Russ teaches that we are to give thanks for everything. Most people have missed the preposition for in 5:20, but that little word proves that we should be thanking God even for tragedies we don't understand. God has a purpose. Russ will show you how to climb the Mt. Everest of the Christian life and help you learn to implement the Impossible Command as you grow closer to the Lord and become a stronger witness for his kingdom.Giving thanks to God for unexpected, painful loss seems impossible. It may seem shocking or even offensive. But Russ Irwin proves that God has indeed commanded us to thank him for everything. Take the challenge and discover the great impact it can have on your Christian walk today!
