A Very Present Help
When Shelley Warner entered an ICU room, where her brother lay in a coma after a drowning accident, she wondered what to say to him. The only encouragement that came to mind was a verse: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble” (Psalm 46:1). Over a period of years, she had been writing stories about God's help—not just in times of trouble—but in good times too. This book contains stories of liberation from a works-oriented Christianity, stories of God's provision, stories of blessing, and stories of struggle. It is her deep hope that the insights shared in these narratives will illuminate the path for fellow travelers on their spiritual journeys.
