Can something so painful, even tragic, actually be God’s way of blessing?

As believers, we generally expect good things to happen in our lives. We expect a blessing upon blessing because we love God and He loves us and we form an expectation of prosperity (relational, emotional, and physical). And when the tragedy strikes and we enter a season of unwanted changes and suffering, we are shocked, angry, disappointed, and confused. We start doubting God’s love and His good intentions and plans. We begin questioning His ways and methods. We don’t understand. It is difficult to reconcile the pain we feel with what we know about God. This encouraging book aims to help you not only identify and accept specific losses but to realize that painful experiences could be the birthplace of blessings. We lose something, but there is more to gain.

What is God using your pain for?

“With great candor and kind compassion, Hadassah Treu has penned a transforming balm of hope for the hurting heart. Draw Near is a loving invitation to release pain for gain-to let go, yes, of the pain of any life loss for the gain that God plants into our desperate teardrops. A remarkable blend of devotional, Bible study, and storytelling, this gentle guide will help the wounded move from the struggle to control to the sweet gift of God’s comfort and strength. It’s a healing oil of love for wounded souls.”

-Patricia Raybon, Christy Award-winning author of God Is Our Help from Our Daily Bread Publishing and the Annalee Spain Mysteries from Tyndale Fiction

“What if the seasons of our greatest adversity were places of our deepest growth with God? In Draw Near, Hadassah Treu shows how the pain of a traumatic childhood, infertility, rejection, and becoming a widow were catalysts to help her find hope and healing in Christ. Hadassah takes us through a scripture-saturated journey to help us see life’s difficulties as gifts and suffering as an opportunity to draw closer to God.”
