Getting Through

I just read the last chapter of my book You’ll Get Through This by Max Lucado.  I love this author. I was extremely encouraged by what he said in the book about hope and help for our turbulent times.  It’s hard to believe so many lives were taken in Orlando, FL and so many others were injured by one gunman.  This violence, hatred, evil is real and I must as a believer in Christ remember the biblical examples of God turning mess into good. I must pray and encourage others going through whatever difficulties they face.  Thank you Max Lucado for reminding me of  how I need to be a Joseph this in the final chapter’s message:  Evil. God. Good.

Quoted from Max’s book:

“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 naive. But don’t despair either.  With God’s help, you’ll get through this. ”  Max Lucado

Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

  1. Yes!1 Peter 5:8-11 ESV Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen #fortheloveofChristisyoursheild
