You’ll Get Through This Book Review

More often, in life, we experience times of turbulence. Things don’t go as planned, a loved one dies, a marriage falls apart, finances aren’t what we need them to be, life would definitely be a lot more pleasant if we didn’t have the hard times. Unfortunately, we do and always will have moments of not-so-fun in our lives, but as the title of Max Lucado’s book suggests “You’ll Get Through This“. Family Christian sent me a copy of the book to review and it’s just what I needed at this time in my life.

You'll Get Through This Contents

While my heart knows God is always in control, I just have to trust him, my head doesn’t always remember that. In You’ll Get Through This, Max Lucado focuses on the story of Joseph, who was sold into slavery by his brothers, wrongfully imprisoned, and went through many more disappointments. It would have been easy for him to throw his hands into the air and just say “I quit“, but had he done that, had he held grudges, he would not have become governor over all of Egypt. He would likely have died alone and miserable, but God was able to use those unfathomable hardships to grow him as a person and bless him tremendously. As you read, You’ll Get Through This, you’ll begin to realize he can do the same for you!

The book has 15 chapters covering everything you could possibly think of, when it comes to hardships, and is saturated with scripture to encourage you and remind you that God is always in control…and why the situation we are facing is only temporary! Reminding ourself something is temporary, is sometimes all the encouragement we need.

You'll get through this inside

“You’ll get through this. It won’t be painless. It won’t be quick. But God will use this mess for good. In the meantime don’t be foolish or naive. But don’t despair either. With God’s help you will get through this.”

The book covers forgiveness (sometimes that is the hardest hardship we have to go through…forgiving others who have wronged us), reminds us to wait while God works, and that sometimes we need to remind ourselves to get rid of the attitude and replace it with gratitude. Max, encourages you to really trust God, no matter what! To really say to him “I don’t know why I am going through this, but I am, and that no matter how severe the storm, there is always an end to it!

Questions to reflect on

At the end of the book, there is even a questions for reflections section, so we can really dig deep into what God wants us to hold onto during those turbulent times. We have to know the promises He’s given us, equip ourselves with His word, because He is really what will carry us through all we are going through. You’ll Get Through This is a book I suggest every person here on earth read, if only to remind ourselves that storms don’t last forever, neither do hardships, tough times will happen, but if you keep your focus on and trust in Him…You’ll Get Through This!

    I like Max Lucado books! They are so inspirational, and this one is another good book by him. I like how he shows the story of Joseph in slavery-that is a very interesting story in the Bible-how he lived and did not compromise his faith. I would love to read this book for encouragement.
