What would go through your mind if you were suddenly unable to do anything for yourself? Shame, humility, pride? Katherine Elizabeth Clark found out what happens when something like that occurs, and shares her story in where i end.
After a tragic accident that left her paralyzed, Katherine Clark was taken out of the world of activity that she was used to. Normal, everyday things, like playing with her kids, were now out of reach. She relates her journey, both physical and spiritual, and what she learned about God's presence.
One of the parts that stuck with me is how she didn't ask, "Why me," but "Why?" Wanting to know why we were "chosen" to have something happen to us is often the first question that arises, but that distracts us from something more important. Through the helplessness of the paralysis, and the continued dependence on others, Katherine Clark was able to learn how about God's faithfulness, and how He uses bad events to strengthen and teach us.
where i end is well written and a down to earth lesson in trusting God to be with us. She doesn't gloss over the fear and doubt that she felt, but shares her true thoughts and feelings. This book helps readers to see that tragedy, though not easy to go through, can be used by God for our good.
I received a free copy of the book from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
