When I come up against a “wall” in my life, where there seems to be no answer or way out, it is as though I have my hands up and am trying to feel every inch of those stones over and over again. Sometimes I am able to break myself out, by forcefully hammering and tearing away at a soft spot I found in the wall. Other times I have lived my life from behind the wall, unable to find my way out in spite of my best efforts. Living life behind “the wall” has taught me more about God than I could have learned had my life been free from these type of struggles. These lessons are such a lifeline to me, that I believe they are worth sharing.
My purpose in writing this book is to talk about those areas in life we are not able to overcome. They may even feel like stone walls built up around us, holding us captive. These are the walls that ONLY the Almighty God has the power to break down. When we come to the end of ourselves, throw our troubles down at His feet, and cry out to Him to lead us out of our desperation, He is able to create a “soft spot” that wasn’t there before. — Tamara (Tami) Gaupp
Through many years of ministry, I have had the opportunity to experience loss. I have seen, and known firsthand, that the Christian realm does not deal with it easily—especially in any type of leadership position. I refer here to spiritual loss. Not just losing a battle, but losing vision, ministry, or position. Watching your dream and what you thought was God’s dream for you die; being helpless to change the outcome or the hurt; being helpless to explain why.
How to Win When You Lose is written from my perspective of having been through what you may be going through. You are not alone in the feelings of anger, betrayal, and hopelessness. You are normal! My goal is to help you find renewed vision, ministry, hope and joy as you serve Christ. My prayer is that my story will be part of the healing and resurrection you are longing to embrace - Fleda
