Written by Kevin DeYoung, 2013

We know we have a problem with busyness. We are busy, we are burdened by our busyness, and not being productive in it.

That, and everyone I know who has read it says that is simply amazing and “I should read it every year for the rest of my life.”

Not surprisingly, God answered my prayers!

As I read the book, I was challenged in many ways. Each chapter deals with a different area of life, but Robbie always returns to God’s grace and forgiveness.

What’s your life like now?

Perhaps you’re relatively happy. Life’s been good. You’ve got few complaints and a smile on your face.

Or maybe, life hasn’t been so great. You’ve lost loved ones, struggled with sickness, or simply making it to the start of another year is a surprise to you.

In this world, you will suffer

In Invest Your Suffering, Paul Mallard says you only have to live long enough in this world to suffer. The Christian’s story isn’t, ‘I met Jesus and lived happily ever after’.
