Author and sought-after speaker, Esther Fleece, gives readers a new understanding of pain and grief. She equips readers with tools to deal with their pain that will lead to a more intimate, authentic relationship with Jesus. "Everything happens for a reason." Most people have heard a cliché like this at least once in their lives in response to their hurts and disappointments. And while many books have been written about steps readers can take to heal after a particularly challenging or difficult trial of life, few also include the first crucial step: how to cope while one is in the trial. No More Faking Fine fills this gap. Instead of using ineffective, and even psychologically dangerous coping methods that rely on shutting down or sucking up painful emotions, Fleece gives readers permission to experience the hurt, anxiety, frustration they've silenced for so long. Then, she goes one critical step further to introduce readers to the life-giving prayer that God never ignores, never silences, and never wastes: the prayer of lament. And lament, Fleece writes, leads the way to true hope, healing, and intimacy with God. It's time to put away our coping mechanisms for good and learn the life-giving prayer that God never ignores, never silences, and never wastes. Drawing from deep reserves of biblical study, hard-won insight, and, especially, through the need to lament-Esther reveals how to use God's own language to give voice to one's pain, which ultimately gives way to new life.
