Like many people, you've done your best to gain control of your life - to force reality to fit into the confines of your high expectations. Reality, though, has a way of repeatedly dashing your hopes and crushing your dreams. You've been told to believe God is in control, but countless dark and painful circumstances have your mind filled with questions that desperately beg answers: Why can't life ever go according to my plan? How do I trust God in the midst of chaos? Does He really know what's best for me?
You might survive on your own for a season, but sooner or later you'll be forced to admit you can't make it alone. Yet you fear that letting God take control will take you places you're not ready or willing to go. But it's in times of desperation and uncertainty that your faith has the opportunity to grow, leading to what you desperately need the most: the peace of God which surpasses all understanding.
Join best-selling author Cherie Hill as she reveals the good news that life may not go according to your plan, but it does go according to His.
