As we launch our new series, “You’ll Get Through This”, we are making available copies of Max Lucado’s book of the same name for just $15. It truly is fantastic, and I would recommend it to anyone who wonders whether God is actually present in the hard things of life. Two of our church family members share their own reflections on the book below.
Over the past month I have been using this book for my devotions. I learned that Joseph, through all his trials, held on to his trust and faith in God.
I really like how Max Lucado also talked about the family dysfunction as well and how that affects our choices in life. . . good and bad ones. I am really enjoying the book and have a more in depth knowledge of Joseph beyond what I learn in Sunday school.
Before I started reading this book, I was dealing with the loss of a job. I was depressed. After reading the book, I'm much happier, and I have realized what I had known all along but just strayed away from: God will get you through ANYTHING as we put our trust fully in Him.
The pain that you might be experiencing now will hurt. But when we lean into God, it all seems to be ok. I found that in each and every chapter, Max Lucado talks about something that I myself have dealt with at least once in my life.
Thank you for showing me this book. It has got me back on track and focused on what really matters...God.
