Description from Goodreads:

Suffering is often a reality people don’t choose. However, they do have a choice in how to respond to it. In The Sweet Side of Suffering, author M. Esther Lovejoy explores the character of God to help readers find a response that sweetens the bitter waters of suffering. This engaging book is written in a narrative voice, sharing biblical truths and practical insights from the author’s personal experiences. Readers can find a message of hope and encouragement as they discover a fresh perspective on strengthening their relationship with God and renewing their confidence in knowing that He is always there.

My thoughts:

M. Esther Lovejoy writes this book from her heart. It’s a love letter to
all who are hurting. She uses her own experience as well as the experiences
of others to show how suffering can bring a closer walk with God.
Scriptures used are from the New International Bible.

I particularly liked the chapter on the names of Jesus and the chapter on
hope. There is so much in here that I needed to read. It was a blessing to
me and it will be a blessing to you.

I was given a copy of this book from Discovery House Publishers through
Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
