Every person who walks through this life will have HURT and PAIN. The question is not so much how to avoid hurts as they are inevitable. The question is simply, how do I handle the hurts that come my way in life? Do I allow these hurts to cause broken relationships or do I overcome them? This little book seeks to point out these matters in illustrations from real life situations so you and I can draw from other sources enough resources and insights to enable us to overcome. The words of Jesus are still true:
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
