it's not supposed to be this way chapter 1 summary

Proverbs 31 Ministries is a non-denominational, non-profit Christian ministry that seeks to lead women into a personal relationship with Christ, with Proverbs 31:10-31 as a guide. I can’t wait for the day that I won’t need to wrestle well between my feelings and my faith because in the new Eden, “there will be no competing narrative about God’s nature” (page 10). Curious about the It's Not Supposed to Be This Way Online Bible Study schedule? Every once and a while, you forget that you signed up for a book launch team, and then you receive a book at the exact time you need to receive it. And so when I came across this book, I figured it would be one of those books. I truly want to sit at her kitchen table, hold her hand and prayer with her, and then have her do the same as I cry over my disappointments. I am happy to consider reviewing books on behalf of publishers. I'm personally happy to see that she and her husband have reconciled after publication but I feel this book is missing depth that she could've spoken to during her separation. “And you know what? BUT WE DON’T LIVE THERE NOW” (emphasis added, page 6). Amazing, that. And she challenges us to lean into Him in this space between two gardens and trust His heart. The disappointment that comes from loving and following Him, obeying Him, and watching your world fall apart. God loves us so much that He isn’t leaving us where we are. I have to say that this is the best book I have read of hers. What does that kind of perfection look like? Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. The disappointment is justified because it’s not supposed to be this way and our souls know it! There are prayers. We used this DVD along with the study guide in our small study group. I feel that the book is better suited for people, especially women, who are older than the age of 40 who have had some significant life experiences and health challenges. We need to know God’s character, His heart for us. Lysa was recently awarded the Champions of Faith Author Award and has been published in multiple publications such as CNN and Fox News online. We all have disappointments and we all struggle if not daily with things that goes on. And it gets great reviews. The whole world seems to know the circumstances which caused Lysa TerKeurst to write this book. What we’ll discover as we read further into this book, deeper into Lysa’s story, is that she’s not handing out empty platitudes here. This book is designed to help you through those times, to help heal past hurts, to help you see past the difficulties and focus on God and his promises. I have been reading outside of my comfort zone lately, trying to find insight and wisdom in places I don't usually think to look. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. But today — today, we need to recognize our need for this wrestling. In It's Not Supposed to be This Way Lysa addresses the things and hurts that happen in our lives that leave us questioning where God has gone. Thank you @nelsonbooks for this advance reader in exchange for my honest review.
