Finding Purpose Beyond Our Pain by Paul D. Meier and David L. Henderson

Uncover Your Hidden Potential Within Life's Struggles

Uncover Your Hidden Potential Within Life’s Struggles

This is a great self development book on finding a purpose beyond our pain instead of living forever within it. I have written notes and posted colored tabs on its pages as well as used a highlighter within every chapter of this book.

The authors begin with the topic of pain as it relates to injustice and how easy it is to compare our lives to others’ and oft times wrongly perceive injustice. “Equal treatment does not automatically represent what is fair and just.” They address the problem of how perception of injustice is so easily distorted by one’s sense of entitlement. Can we handle truth and why blame God; rejection and acceptance; loneliness and knowing yourself, loss and gain, failure and true success, death and resurrection hope, and many more topics…

Whatever you or your loved one might be dealing with these authors have addressed it here within “Finding Purpose Beyond Our Pain” as well as the steps to walk through it. They give “practical application points” at the end of each section for understanding how to follow through. This is a wonderful book; one that you could easily read time and again as needed.
