When we can't see what God is doing in us, it is usually because we can't see past what we are trying to do for ourselves.
Tormented by a childhood of which he has almost no memories, author W. R. Bennett strives toward a meaningful purpose in his life by attempting to align his strong will with God's will.
By supplementing his poor memory with years of writing poetry and exploring detailed notes from his running records, Bennett is finally able to decipher the reason for his insatiable hunger and addictive nature. He first recognizes his own behavior in the actions of his youngest grandson, but is clueless to its meaning until he begins a two-year writing odyssey. Slowly, he sees beyond the foolishness of his ways, hidden during fifty years as an addict in the prayer closet. When he finally steps into the light, Bennett can see the remarkable treasures from God previously obscured by his own shadow.
