As a scientist, Dr. Temitope (Tope) Keku expects to find logical explanations for the things she encounters in the laboratory. But no such logic was to be found in the hardships she and her family faced in the span of one year: job loss, marital struggles, and mental and physical illnesses. Though she developed no rational explanation for the pain and suffering she experienced, Tope did discover hidden treasures in the midst of her trials.
Tope details her family’s travails in her devotional Weathering Storms: Finding Treasure in the Ruins. Though she couldn’t explain her problems away, she found nuggets of truth in Scripture–peace, patience, gratitude, and more–that helped her weather her pain and suffering.
“If we try to weather our storm alone, we will end up frustrated,” Temitope says. “When we are going through tough times, we need hope. We need an anchor to pull us through the raging storms. However, what is often missing is how to translate our knowledge of God and apply it to our storms that often appear larger than life.”
In this encouraging, practical devotional by a master storyteller, readers will draw inspiration from real-life stories and biblical examples to inspire them to draw close to their heavenly Father as they weather their own storms. No matter the challenge, the scriptural gems will leave believers with the knowledge that their identity in Christ is secure in spite of the raging tempest.
