My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“At some point in our lives, most of us will experience a loss so devastating that it knocks the wind out of our souls and leaves us gasping for hope. In My Breaking Point, God’s Turning Point, Ricky Texada shares his own story of unexpected loss transformed into unimaginable blessing, offering new perspective on God’s amazing ability to restore his people. After losing his wife Debra in a devastating car accident, Ricky wondered if he would ever be able to trust God with the certainty he once had, let alone ever love again. Biblically based and borne out of Texada’s own experiences, My Breaking Point, God’s Turning Point shares the much needed hope and practical guidance to help people get back on their feet and experience the healing balm of God’s loving care.”
What a blessing this book is to someone that has had a devastating loss, and how I wish that it had been available 8 years ago when I lost my husband to a short illness. As the author shares his story, you can hear the pain in his heart at the same time you can hear the hope in his heart. As I read this book, I thought to myself… he get’s it… he’s walked this path, he understands the overwhelming grief, loss, that sense of hopelessness and helplessness.
But woven throughout all of the pages of this book is the bigger story, the real story… the story of God’s amazing love for us. As a tender Father, holding his broken child and walking out his grief and sadness with him… to providing comfort and solace in the blur of events that make no sense… to setting him on a path to wholeness and redemption.
If you have suffered a loss so profound that your entire world is turned upside down – inside out, then I would recommend this book to you. There really is life on the other side of your grief.
