Blessed In The Mess How To Experience God’s Goodness in the Midst of Life’s Pain By Joyce Meyer. Life is often messy. We hear people say, “My life is a mess,” or “This situation is a mess.” What they mean is that life has become difficult, painful, or confusing.
But God never promised us a trouble-free life. In fact, His Word tells us to expect the opposite. In John 16:33, Jesus says, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (NIV).In Blessed in the Mess, beloved Bible teacher Joyce Meyer shows us how to be blessed in the midst of life’s most challenging circumstances. The Bible is filled with instructions on how to handle ourselves when difficulty comes our way, and Blessed in the Mess shares that wisdom through poignant and practical teaching that equips us to remain stable and hopeful in every situation.
No matter what problems we may face, there is a way to remain joyful and patient as God works on them. If you have not handled the messy issues or challenges in your life well in the past, then with God’s help, you can begin to manage them better, starting now.
We should never waste our pain. Through the wisdom distilled in this book, we can learn how to gain something from our messes, use those insights to avoid trouble in the future and share our experiences to help other people find blessings in the midst of their messes.
My Opinion: This book came at the right time for me as I have so much going on and I said last week “My life is a mess”, as I look at the chapters of this book I realized that when stress arises I have a hard time being patient, not offended, keeping my attitude positive and not being mean. I know with practice I can but first I need to stop leading with my feelings.
