Looking Up When Life is Looking Down by Beth Moore

I picked up a book today from the church store and so far I have really enjoyed and been touched by her words! Here is just the introduction to it

"Life can be excruciating. Crushing, in fact. The sheer magnitude of our worries can press down on our heads and, one inch at a time, we unknowingly descend into a pit of despair. Something so horrible can happen that we conclude we'll never be okay again. We can be delivered to a place where the air is crisp, the enemy is whipped, and the view is magnificent.

The Bible teaches that there are no lost causes; no permanent pit-dwellers except those who refuse to leave. Every person can know complete redemption in Christ, purpose for life, and fullness of joy. No, life won't ever be easy but the trade-off is a spin around Planet Earth that actually means something. I am convinced that when the last chapter of each life story is recorded in the annals of heaven, people would rather have lived out their fullness of days with purpose than without pain.

I want you to know the power of His Word can defy every addiction, heal any affliction, and plug up every pit. I believe God has scheduled a time and a way for you to get out of your pit. You're going to need to show up for the appointment, though."
