Seasoned author and editor Darla Isackson
treats us to a life time of lessons she has learned through the crucible of mortality. And in her own summation, it is to "Trust God No Matter What!"
Everyone has trials, problems, challenges, and disappointments. Isackson says, "it?s how we respond to each one that determines how quickly we learn the intended lesson."
Darla, who experienced divorce after 22 years of temple marriage and whose son died of suicidal depression shares these and other experiences with the wisdom earned through the Refiner?s fire. "He knows what I need to learn," she says, acknowledging that responsibility and accountability lie "with me only."
Because she is willing to share her own story "without complaint and without sentimentality" the reader is able to better identify and face their own dilemmas with greater understanding and perspective.
Just one of the many powerful quotes is this: "pridefulness can't be yoked with Christ, only humility."
