How To Sail Through Sucky Situations With Flying Colors

Written by Doug Giles on April 25, 2020

Can any GOOD come out of a hellish situation? Of course it can! But only if you dig deep into the opportunities that lurk even life’s most cruddy situations.

With the one-two punch of the Wuhan Wheezer and the economic curb-stomping that’s been sweeping the planet, people have been reeling. You might even be one of them.

What do you do when you’ve been clobbered with the blunt end of life’s pool cue? Where’s God in your life when circumstances welcome you to ‘The Suck’?

Have you been in a happy-clappy church that doesn’t like to talk about the rubber-meets-the-road issues of life, then maybe you need to sit down for some of this for your Sunday morning session of Sermons At Home, instead of someone who’s been blowing sunshine up your butt.

There are some real answers for real issues in the verbum Dei, including the deep yogurt we’re finding ourselves in now… if we know where to go looking for them.

Fair warning though. Sometimes to get the good lessons out of life, you’ve gotta ’embrace the mace’ and hear things that will challenge you and step on your toes.

You know, the way Jesus did when he had something to say. If that’s too much for you, there are plenty of gutless wonders out there who’ll only preach the cotton-candy parts out of God’s Word — the kind that leaves their people unprepared when the storms of life come up.

But if you’re ready and willing to step out of the Sunday School kiddie pool and out into the open water of real life, you’ve come to the right place.

Need a bigger dose of spiritual adrenaline to get you back on your feet when you feel like you’ve fallen flat on your face?

We’ve got you covered there, too.

Things are pretty rough right now, eh? You know, in days gone by, tough times were no big deal to the believer, because Christians used to be a tad bit pluckier back then. When bad things happened, the believers from bygone days did not wail like sirens, move home with mummy, and/or renounce their Christianity just because things momentarily were jacked up. You re probably thinking, Where did they get their holy bulldog resiliency? Jesus told us in the Sermon on the Mount that heartaches in life are a matter of when, not if. Are you ready? If not, don t freak, as the contents of this fast-paced and funky book seek to shore up your sagging spirit.
