Nobody earns the right to be heard more than those Christian saints who have been "refined in the fire." In this little booklet Tada (a quadriplegic for the past four decades - who speaks, writes, and paints with a brush in her mouth) shares some encouraging words for those who are "in the fire" of suffering. I think that this little booklet is useful to read before, during, or after suffering as the thesis of Tada is centralized on the eventual glory we will experience because of the promises of Christ in the Scriptures.The Four Chapters Are:1) Hope is Hard to Come By - Tada discusses her and our battle with suffering and our selfish nature that only God can deliver us from - "He [God] wanted me to reckon myself dead--dead to sin--because if God can raise the dead, you'd better believe he could raise me out of my hopelessness."2) Meeting Suffering and Joy on God's Terms - She writes, "To this you were called because Christ suffered for you, leaving you this kind of example that you should follow. He endured the cross for the joy that was set before him (Heb. 12:2). Should we expect to do less? So then, join me; boast in your afflictions. Delight in your infirmities. Glory in your weaknesses, for then you know that Christ's power rests in you (2 Cor. 12:9)."3) Hope is Contagious - "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies. But we live in a dark, diseased world under the curse of sin. Hell is real. And God owes this utterly rebellious planet absolutely nothing. But aren't you glad that he is a God of love, not wanting anyone to perish? And he is out to convince this unbelieving, sarcastic, skeptical world of his power to save, his abilities to sustain, and his desire to share his hope.
