Dark Clouds, Deep Mercy
Dark Clouds, Deep Mercy: Discovering the Grace of Lament | Mark Vroegop
2 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
Lament is how you live between the poles of a hard life and trusting Gods goodness. Lament is how we bring our sorrow to Godbut it is a neglected dimension of the Christian life for many Christians today. We need to recover the practice of honest spiritual struggle that gives us permission to vocalize our pain and wrestle with our sorrow. Lament avoids trite answers and quick solutions, progressively moving us toward deeper worship and trust. Exploring how the Biblethrough the psalms of lament and the book of Lamentationsgives voice to our pain, this book invites us to grieve, struggle, and tap into the rich reservoir of grace and mercy God offers in the darkest moments of our lives.

I was recommended this book by a progressive Christian to help deal with with some hard times I was going through. This is not a progressive book, it is Evangelical and I have serious theological disagreements with Evangelicals. So keep that in mind. Otherwise, there were some real beautiful parts that dealt with grief and pain without pushing it to the side for toxic positivity.
