Do you have a "splinter" in your life that you're longing to remove? What if God allows this thorn in the flesh for your greater good? Discover how loneliness, job troubles, physical disability, personality problems, or other painful life issues can be used to get your attention---and spur you toward spiritual growth!Publishers Description
What happens when the pain just won't go away?
Do you want the prickly, uncomfortable thorn in your flesh to go away?
R.T. Kendall wants you to know that God gives you thorns for your benefit. Most people think of this discomfort as a physical pain, but Kendall explains how God gets your attention through loneliness, a handicap or disability, an enemy, an unhappy marriage, personality problem, and more.
Kendall helps you understand how God's grace is sufficient as he answers questions like:
What are the advantages to loneliness?Why does God use an enemy to refine you?How can a handicap or disability offer you the most dazzling reward in heaven?What did Abraham and Moses learn from experiencing unhappy living conditions?Believe that your thorn in the flesh is for your good, and that it is the best thing that will ever happen to you-next to your conversion and anointing. It is time for believers to accept that God has allowed life's splinters for a victorious purpose of humility and not taking life too seriously. Denial and repression will not change a thing, but knowing and recognizing God's love will impact lives and turn negative attitudes into positive rewards.

|Book Review Mar 18, 2008|
|I purchased this book for a writting assignment I had for my Seminary class. I was somewhat disappointed with the lack of discussion on Paul's particular thorn. I expected Kendall to elaborate on this text more than he did. That being said, Kendall did a great job highlighting the important aspects of the text and offering insights regarding modern day "thorns" that believers must face.|
All around, I would recommend this book. It would be a great tool for sermon preparation or paper writting. It would even make for good leisure reading.
|Helpful Advice!!! Nov 4, 2007|
|This book gives you practical ways to improve your life. It touches on various topics that we all struggle with. R.T. Kendall also teaches from a biblical viewpoint to enlighten us on God's masterful way of handling problems and situations that are meant to help us grow. The thorn in the flesh is usually there for a reason and a season, and that is what the book conveys.|

|Not what I expected Apr 1, 2007|
|I have nothing against tv evangalistic programs, yet I didn't expect this book to be a TBN release. |
|I loved it. Jan 17, 2006|
|This is a great book. Once I started reading it I could not put it down until I finished it. It is very true and scriptural. Christians need to stop this rose garden mentality. Life is not all prosperity and blessing. Sometimes it takes a thorn in the flesh to get to the blessing. We have to go through things. It is how we learn and grow and become the people God created us to become. Not all sickness and disease is from Satan, people give him to much glory. God is always in control. He does allow things to happen; for reasons we may not find out until we get to the other side. When we get to heaven, I believe we are all going to be surprised at what we thought we knew and what we actually did know. This is a wonderful book and may help you to realize why things you've hoped and prayed for have not yet changed. They may never change, but his grace is sufficient. |
|This book was awful Dec 19, 2005|
|I would like to thank everyone who has left a bad review for this book. It's no wonder so many people are suffering within the Church. This is one of the worst books ever written.|
