Summary

"Whatever difficulties you face," Lisa Osteen Comes encourages readers, "I believe you are made for more." Lisa shares from her own life stories of facing birth defects, limiting labels as a young woman, an unwanted divorce, criminal attack, infertility, and broken dreams. With every story, in every chapter, she delivers biblical truths and practical help for overcoming hardship and loss. Her down-to-earth style, humor, spiritual wisdom, and optimism engage listeners, who will remember and repeat Lisa's memorable principles for daily living: You can't grasp the future, if you're hanging onto the past. You weren't made for the pit, but for the palace. It's not over till God says it's over. God's at work in you, making a masterpiece. Let your scars become stars. In a time when more people face financial peril, uncertain work lives, and feelings of fragility in a fast-paced and overwhelming world, Lisa's message shows how to not only get through the day but how to catch new vision for a bold and bright life.

Encouraging Truths

I really enjoyed this book! I would recommend it to anyone who has experienced a setback and is looking to do a restart or adjust their mindset. The author shares her own struggles and explains how God makes beauty out of our mistakes. I really appreciated all of the specific Scripture verses that were used throughout the book.

Interesting Christian Story

A triumphant story would have a foundation of leaning in and trusting God step-by-step which I didn't think was quite the height of this book. The presence of God was continuous in the events of her life, but the fervor is not there to flame the gift present to her. She didn't seem to take the responsibility to seek God as she should but relied on the strong faith of her parents beyond the age where she should take more initiative. Many may find the story inspiring that God is there and working on our behalf even if we lack enthusiasm about the grace available to us. God never leaves us or forsakes us and is patient and will continue to seek to bless us more, but He cannot do that if we seek answers elsewhere and maybe also with God but without any commitment. Wavering back and forth between leaning on people and natural means and then pray but then turn away to get relief elsewhere will not bring the grace of God to bear in one's situation.

EPHESIANS 3:20 | Now to Him Who, by the action of His power, that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams—

Our God is a covenant God and requires that we participate in the divine nature as 2 Peter 1:3-4 states. "His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire."

SO INSPIRING

I purchased this book awhile back, but just now had a chance to listen to it and God’s timing was perfect as always. Your sweet words of inspiration were just what I needed. Lisa thank you for sharing and reading this book! I’m SO grateful you read it yourself. You are an amazing lady and feel like a long time friend. Your kind voice and words were SO inspiring! Praise God for your Dad and his decision to follow the Lord! Your family’s books and sermons have been a huge help to me many times when I needed to be reminded of God’s love and the message of hope that only He can provide. God bless you all!

This book is full of Daddy God

I will listen to this book again and again. I have already given it to my 25yo son and will give it to my 23yo daughter. As I face the biggest struggles and obstacles ever in my life at every turn, this book, along with many messages from Joel Osteen and Joseph Prince, has literally given me hope, faith and grace to make it through another day. And another. And another....
