You'll Get Through This
Every one of us has faced a deep valley, a dark night of the soul. These are the moments when the heaviness of our reality overtakes us. Solutions seem impossible, and discouragement is constant. It’s in this kind of darkness when God’s grace, strength, and protection can be experienced in a new and powerful way. It’s in these times when His Word becomes so very real to us, and His presence carries us. In spite of how we feel in those dark seasons, we can have confidence that we will get through them. God has shown Himself faithful by carrying us in the past, and He will carry us confidently into our tomorrows. Few stories are as compelling in these kinds of seasons as Joseph’s. He was rejected by his brothers, sold into slavery, and unjustly imprisoned, yet he arises victorious amidst tragedy. He got through his valley, and we can get through ours. Max Lucado taught it well in his book, You’ll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times1. Through the story of Joseph and a little wisdom from Max Lucado, we will find the high road through the desert times. Let’s live in the confidence of God’s sustaining grace. Let’s shake off the heaviness of discouragement and put on the garment of praise. It’s possible! It’s attainable! We can get through our hard and difficult seasons. Yes, I can say confidently, “You’ll get through this!” Together with Him, Pastor Dave1Taken from [You’ll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Your Turbulent Times] by [Max Lucado] Copyright©  by [Max Lucado].
