I met Ruth Graham a few years back and could sense her presence as I read this book. She is honest and frank as she talks about stories from her life where God became real. Ruth also tells of her struggle with fear and other issues. Some of the chapters in this book are titled Trust at My Doorstep, Discover His Trustworthiness, Experience His Presence, Know His Comfort. In each chapter Ruth gives a story from her own life and one from the bible that helps describe yet another aspect of God which helped her grow in His love for her and the plan He has for her life. I liked how Ruth described fear. "Fear takes the air out of life. When we live with fear, we lose our capacity for fun and spontaneity. We struggle to love others whole heartedly..Sometimes we experience fear as torment. Torment is not God's will for us. God is committed to our peace." Ruth also says, "When I am willing to be myself, when I am willing to let God work through my insufficiency, incredible things can happen. Through my weaknesses God can work and show His greatness. Paul caught this truth. I liked how Ruth helped us apply scripture to our lives. In the back of this book God's attributes in ABC order. This can be used as a tool in prayer. It's also a starting point for praising God. I was really encouraged by the message and hope in Ruth's story. It's easy to understand and refreshing. I've received a copy of this book to review and these are my words about how Ruth's book inspired me. Nora St.Laurent Finding Hope Through Fiction www.psalm516.blogspot.com

In "Fear Not Tomorrow, God Is Already There", Ruth Graham challenges us to take our focus off our current situation and focus on Jesus. As she says, "He [Jesus] challenges Martha to shift her focus, to take her mind off her loss and to consider who He is - to affirm who He is." She continues, "That is the ultimate comfort. Jesus, the resurrection and the life, is with us in our suffering." In a very personal way, this book encourages you, the reader, to place yourself in Biblical texts and see how God has been faithful in the past, and to realize He will continue to be faithful in the future. We are encouraged to remember, "Comfort doesn't mean the absence of grief. Grief is something we have to work through; it is a normal, healthy expression." So often in our culture we become accustomed to saying everything is "fine". This book acknowledges our pain and fears are real, but rather than wallow in our concerns, we are encouraged, and given specific tools, to place them with Jesus. Often we are given the simplistic "give it all to Jesus" without knowing exactly how to do that. However, Ruth Graham shares specific tools which have helped her in the past and will bless you as well.
