About this item

If you’ve ever been given empty clichés during challenging times, you know how painful it can feel to be misunderstood by well-meaning people. Far too often, it seems the response we get to our hurt and disappointment is to ****** it up, or pray it away. 

But Scripture reveals a God who meets us where we are, not where we pretend to be.

 

No More Faking Fine is your invitation to get gut-level honest with God through the life-giving language of lament. Lament, a practice woven throughout Scripture, is a prayer that God never ignores, never silences, and never wastes. As author Esther Fleece says, “Lament is the unexpected pathway to true intimacy with God, and with those around us.”

Esther learned this the hard way, by believing she could shut down painful emotions that haunted her from a broken past she tried to forget on her fast track to success. But in silencing her pain, she robbed herself of the opportunity to be healed. Maybe you’ve done the same. 

No More Faking Fine is your permission to lament—to give voice to the hurt, frustration, and disappointment you’ve kept inside and silenced for too long. Drawing from careful biblical study and hard-won insight, Esther reveals how to use God’s own language to draw closer to Him as He leads us through any darkness into His marvelous light.

It's Okay NOT to be Okay

No More Faking Fine is a book that makes it okay not to be okay! Esther beautifully writes and shares her story of coming to a place of lament. Knowing that God WANTS our laments is something the church doesn't readily teach. I felt that this book was bold yet comforting to know that God doesn't shy...see moreof the reviewer's review
