“Suppose I invited you to experience the day of your dreams, Twenty-four hours on an island paradise with your favorite people, food and activities. The only stipulation: one millisecond of discomfort. For reasons I choose not to explain, you will need to begin the day with the millisecond of distress.
Would you accept my offer? I think you would. A split second is nothing compare to twenty four hours. On God’s clock you’re in the middle of your millisecond. Compared to eternity, what is seventy, eighty, ninety years? Just a vapor. Just a finger snap compared to heaven.
Your pain won’t last forever, but you will. ‘Whatever we may have to go through now is less than nothing compared with the magnificent future God has in store for us.’ Romans 8:18″ – Max Lucado
I have always been impressed by books authored by Max Lucado and this book You’ll Get Through This, Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times is yet another masterpiece I have been blessed to have read. Thank you, Thomas Nelson for the copy of the eBook. My current Devotional material also happens to be of Lucado, Just Like Jesus. 🙂
You’ll get through this.
It won’t be painless.
It won’t be quick.
But God will use this mess for good.
Don’t be foolish or naïve.
But don’t despair either.
With God’s help, you’ll get through this.
You fear you won’t make it through. We all do. We fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave. In the pits, surrounded by steep walls and aching reminders, we wonder: Will this gray sky ever brighten? This load ever lighten?
In You’ll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance. “Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere.” Max reminds readers God doesn’t promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn’t for Joseph–tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed–but his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil.
With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.
This book has ministered to me in my time of crisis. With that excerpt from the book that I just needed to share to get a picture of what the book is made of, in a nutshell. Lucado so investigates the life of Joseph in such a way that he was able to extract profound truth of God’s ability to redeem what the devil has broken in a person’s life.
“What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.”
You’ll Get Through This by Max Lucado is a book founded on God’s redeeming grace, where we could put our hope in and find encouragement in life’s troubled times.
