You'll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times

Joseph's pit came in the form of a cistern. Yours came in the form of a diagnosis, a foster home, or a traumatic injury. Joseph was thrown into a hole and despised. And you? Thrown into an unemployment line and forgotten, into a divorce and betrayed, into a bed and abused. The pit. Life is reduced to one quest: to get out and never get hurt again. Not simply done. Pits have no easy exit. Joseph's story got worse before it got better. Abandonment led to enslavement, entrapment, and imprisonment.

Publisher's Summary

Joseph's pit came in the form of a cistern. Yours came in the form of a diagnosis, a foster home, or a traumatic injury. Joseph was thrown into a hole and despised. And you? Thrown into an unemployment line and forgotten, into a divorce and betrayed, into a bed and abused. The pit. Life is reduced to one quest: to get out and never get hurt again. Not simply done. Pits have no easy exit. Joseph's story got worse before it got better. Abandonment led to enslavement, entrapment, and imprisonment. He was sucker-punched. Sold out. Mistreated. People made promises only to break them. Offered gifts only to take them. If hurt is a swampland, then Joseph was sentenced to a life of hard labor in the Everglades. Yet he never gave up. Bitterness never staked its claim. Anger never metastasized into hatred. His heart never hardened; resolve never vanished. He not only survived; he thrived. By the end of his life, Joseph was the second most powerful man of his generation. His life offers this lesson: in God's hands, intended evil becomes ultimate good. Joseph would be the first to tell you, life in the pit stinks. Yet, for all its rottenness, doesn't the pit do this much? It forces you to look upward. Someone from up there must come down here and give you a hand. God did for Joseph. And at the right time, in the right way, he will do the same for you.

    "Getting Beyond Church - Making it Real"

    This book was very much worth making a review. I read a lot of Christian material but this was my first Max Lucado book. I have heard of him and some of his material but this was the first full book. He tackles what is a very tough issue in a very biblical way. If you know the Lord and you are dealing with something very painful I highly recommend this book. Even if you aren't (at the moment) it is a great resource to go deeper with who our Father in heaven is, what he did for us thru His son Jesus Christ, who we are and how he wants us to know ourselves and him. I will listen to this again for sure.

    Story
    "Extremely Dull Nothing New"
    Would you try another book from Max Lucado and/or Wayne Shepherd?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Max Lucado’s story?

    Same thing all over again. I've probably heard these things 1000 times before this book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Wayne Shepherd’s performances?

    Maybe. He was not that bad.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    There are really hidden gems but that's it. Probably not worth your time.
