Story, Laura. “When God Does Not Fix It.” W Publishing Group Thomas Nelson, 2015. 304 pages.The life of worship leader and recording artist Laura Story took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible but the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible and yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways and it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can.
As a song writer Laura has a single out called “Blessings”. God has used this song in some marvelous ways and even though it came out of much pain in her life, it has released the pain and hurt in thousands.
This is a must read! As a Pastor this will help you as you deal with those in your Fellowship who are reeling from devastating news and it will personally strengthen you as well.
