Our hearts are filled with so much hope as we walk our personal paths in this world. At times we are enjoying tremendous blessings that fill us with happiness and contentment. Other times we are facing difficult trials that leave us feeling disappointed, emotionally broken, and on the brink of despair.
In this timely book, internationally acclaimed author Umm Zakiyyah, asks her own struggling soul this provocative question, “What did you expect?” as she seeks to make sense of some of the most painful and confusing trials that we face in this world.
Sometimes we respond with patience, other times with frustration, and still other times with seeking to change our spiritual reality itself. This, in hopes of getting what our hearts so ardently desire in this world.
But is this what is healthiest for our lives and souls?
In this collection of reflective prose, Umm Zakiyyah gives us a glimpse into her own personal journey as she shares seven life lessons that continue to inspire within her spiritual honesty, particularly when life isn’t going as expected.
