Read You'll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times Online Free - 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.

I hit a rough patch this year. I let myself get toiled up in meaningless things, until recently when it all came crashing down. I have been struggling to find why and how God would allow me to go through what I have. This book was exactly what I needed. It doesn't give you all the answers, but it...

This book was life changing for me. The opening phrase that is repeated three times throughout the first chapter is now on my bathroom mirror so I see it every morning and I’m reminded that I will get through each day.

When life hits hard, the questions about God quickly circle our thoughts: How can He be good and allow this? Can He not control what's happening or does He even care? Max Lucado walks through the life of Joseph and shows that through it all--the unconcerned father, the arrogant brothers, sold int...

Max Lucado is an excellent writer and I've enjoyed many of his books in the past. This book is especially good because it focuses on a single Biblical story - that of Old Testament Joseph - and goes amazingly deep with it.
The Broadway version of this story is "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor...

Full of several points of wisdom (such as 'don't make it worse' and 'your perspective predominately underwrites your experiences') that I'm sure would help someone navigate the day-to-day difficulties of life. However, I'm concerned that the soft formula he models from Joseph's story may not have...
