Let’s have a look at the what the book says:
We all reach a stage in life when we find life very trying and tough due to the overload of suffering, sorrow, tension and worry that we have to face and when we cannot find answers to our puzzling thoughts and questions.
Every sorrow, every problem makes us weak and disheartened, making us cry out for help and support. And ultimately when nothing works out, we tend to give up in frustration! We lose every hope of improving our life and forsake all our efforts and even our dreams out of frustration and disappointment. But then, how does it affect the world around us? Not even a wee bit because each one of us has to carry our own cross, whether we like it or not.
There is, however, someone who still cares for us, who can help, guide and even transform our life provided we entrust our faith and trust in Him. He alone can help us! So, say goodbye to all your worries! He is a true guide, friend and companion and as we know, a friend in need is a friend indeed.
He will make your life take a turn for betterment as He can transform it completely, unconditionally. Who is He? He is the Supreme Being; the Supreme Power who reveals His power to us by disclosing His treasures of bliss and virtues. He is the reality of our life. Make Him a part of your life, know Him, learn from Him and grow with Him. He eagerly extends His hand to welcome you, guide you and stay with you on the long and arduous journey of life. All you have to do is take a step towards Him and He will take manifold steps towards you to make your life one of happiness and contentment.
