As some of you know, Max Lucado is one of my all-time favorite authors. It always amazes me how his words echo Scripture so well, and are exactly what I need to hear.
“In God’s hands intended evil becomes eventual good.”
You’ll Get Through This is no exception. Lucado examines the story of Joseph, and how God worked in the lives of Joseph, his family, and those around him in the midst of the grief, the tragedy, the turbulence.
All for good. That is the message of You’ll Get Through This. Even though all we can see right now are the gray skies and the darkness of this pit we are in, God is using it for good. Our good, our sanctification.
“You will never go where God is not.”
While the journey of our life may be fraught with pain, disappointment, and loneliness, it is an amazing comfort that our God not only cares, He delivers.
We have this Promise: joy will come in the morning. We have this Assurance: He will wipe every tear from our eyes. We have this Hope: in Heaven, there will be no goodbyes, no broken promises, no heartbreak.
“Waiting is a sustained effort to stay focused on God through prayer and belief.”
I thoroughly enjoyed You’ll Get Through This, and found it to be a great encouragement. It was just what I needed to read at this point in my life, when I am struggling with some icky relationships. I would give the book an “A”.
Have you read the book? If so, what are your thoughts?
