Grief can be so crippling that it blinds you to God’s presence. Many who grieve struggle to face the sudden loss, much less embrace it and rest in it. In this remarkably honest book, Sharon Betters tells us the full story of her teenage son’s sudden death in a car accident. Excerpts from Sharon’s journal express the raw grief, anger, and hunger to understand how God can be good and loving, and still take away her youngest child.
Sharon Betters draws readers to a passage from Isaiah that carries God’s promise to provide treasures for his people in the very midst of darkness and trouble. Whether they’re suffering from recent or loss from the distant past, readers of Treasures in Darkness will see how they can experience God’s presence and love even during the darkest times.
