In You'll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times bestselling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance, "Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere." Whether you find yourself in the pit of financial downturn, job loss, health crisis, or relationship stresses, God has a plan and a pathway forward for you.
Max reminds readers God doesn't promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. That certainly wasn’t the case for Joseph who was tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed, but God ultimately used the intended evil against Joseph for a greater purpose.
In this book, Max will help you:Find comfort that you are God’s child and God cares deeply for you.Remember that God is near you and has never left you.Take courage that God will restore even the most painful circumstances and use them for good.
With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.

In this story a woman gives her garbage of shame to the trashman; an old man hands over his heavy bag of regrets. Hundreds walk to the landfill and find it filled with trash.
"Give it to me. Tomorrow. At the landfill. Will you bring it?" He rubs a moist smudge from her cheek with his thumb and stands. "Friday. The landfill."
"You can't live with this," he explains. "You weren't made to."
For individuals and churches, here is a beautiful story of a Savior who can take all our garbage on his shoulders-and amazingly, still stand!

For some, Christmas is a time of excitement, celebration, and family, while for others it is a time of loneliness, grief, and loss. No matter what this season holds for you, the promise of Christmas will bring you a lifetime of hope.
Christmas begins what Easter celebrates. The child in the cradle becomes the King on the cross. Because of Bethlehem, we have a Savior in heaven. These are the heart shaping promises of Christmas. Long after the guests have left, the carolers have gone home, and the lights have come down, these promises endure.
No one expected God to come the way he did. Yet the way he came was every bit as important as the coming itself. The manger is the message.
In the midst of your hectic Christmas season, Max will help you:Rekindle your connection to the Christ of Christmas who offers lasting hope.Lay down your endless Christmas to-do list and receive what Jesus has already done.Heal your heartache by embracing the God who is always near you, always for you, and always in you.
As you curl up in a comfortable spot and look into the odd, wonderful story of Bethlehem, may you find enduring hope for all seasons of your life.
