“Therefore glorify the Lord in the dawning light, The name of the Lord God of Israel in the coastlands of the sea.” (Isaiah 24:15, NKJV)
The mere sight of the structures brings the reminder that in the midst of a storm, navigation is always possible. We can overcome the storms of life and find our way to safety.
In her book, Lighthouse Faith: God as a Living Reality in a World Immersed in Fog, Lauren Green does a beautiful job of exploring the question, “Where is God in my hour of need?”
It is probably the most asked question down through the ages and one, we all have asked or will ask at some point in our lives.
In the darkest nights of our souls, we wrestle with life and its meaning. We search for a way to make sense of it all as we seek comfort, security, and strength as we journey.
Lauren Green takes us on a powerful journey exploring the questions we ask. She points us to three truths:
- “We need and look for light in a darkened world to guide us.”
- “Light is a source, outside of ourselves, which we desperately need.”
- “Jesus Christ is the light we must value above all other forms.”
Much the way a lighthouse helps a ship to navigate its way to shore, our relationship with God through His Word is meant “to illuminate the way to freedom, to define a covenantal relationship with God, to help us navigate through any storm in life” (page 13).
Written to engage our hearts and minds, we are made to think more deeply about God and His love for us, His people. It was most difficult to put the book down once I began reading as every word spoke deeply and confirmed truth in a meaningful and illuminating manner.
Lighthouse Faith will remind every reader to live each day in a way which loves, honors, and serves God more fully:
In the words of Joshua, it is a daily opportunity to say, “Choose for yourself this day whom you will serve.”And to state boldly the only plausible solution, “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord”
(Joshua 24:15). (from page 161)
This is a challenging book from start to finish and one we all need in these days we are living. One well worth the time to read!
