Lament helps us hear God’s louder song.
When you’re in the midst of suffering, you want answers for the unanswerable, resolutions to the unresolvable. You want to tie up pain in a pretty little package and hide it under the bed, taking it out only when you feel strong enough to face it. But grief won’t be contained. Grief disobeys. Grief explodes. In one breath, you may be able to say that God’s got this and all will be well. In the next, you might descend into fatalism. No pretending. Here, you are raw before God, an open wound.
There is a pathway through this suffering. It’s not easy, but God will use it to lead you toward healing. This path is called lament. Lament leads us between the "Already" and the "Not Yet". Lament minds the gap between current hopelessness and coming hope. Lament anticipates new creation but also acknowledges the painful reality of now. Lament recognizes the existence of evil and suffering - without any sugarcoating - while simultaneously declaring that suffering will not have the final say.
In the midst of your darkest times, you will discover that lament leads you back to a place of hope - not because lamenting does anything magical, but because God sings a louder song than suffering ever could, a song of renewal and restoration.

You will grow up a little in this book
I came to this book to study for a lesson I was teaching on hope & hopelessness. I left having been taught many lessons I didn't even know I needed, through this book. The author shares from deep pain, what you can only come to understand when you are in such a place of mourning. It was an honor to have been invited in, and I am so grateful.

Thank you Aubrey!
Aubrey, I imagine at some point you may see this... thank you!!!!
This book is so relevant to anyone breathing... because anyone breathing has experienced grief in some capacity! Whether it’s that your or someone you love is chronically ill or you’ve lost a loved one (in any way) or like me, both!
After a traumatic 11 was of cancer, my mom went to be with Jesus! And now i care for my dad, suffering his own bout with cancer. In addition, as a family we are supporting our two daughters, who both have autoimmune issues... both being seen at Stanford for the past 4 years, after looking for answers for
many years! (Thank you God for answers finally!)
Thank you, again Aubrey, for hearing Gods message, in the midst of your own pain!
This book is applicable for ALL
