The Bible is clear that each of us will have difficulties in our lives. When we face this decision point, how do you handle them? Carole Lewis has had her share of life's difficulties yet she chooses to LIVE LIFE RIGHT, HERE RIGHT NOW!
Each chapter focuses on a timeless truth with the author giving her personal experience matched with teaching from the Bible and combined with the first person experience from one of her friends. This multi-pronged approach gives rich substance and insight for every reader. Lewis selects twelve key principles for her chapter titles such as Let Tomorrow Take Care of Itself or Take Small Steps in the Right Direction or Watch Out for the Father of Lies.
No Christian has a picture perfect life. As Lewis writes, "Seeing the humor in life's ups and downs keeps us from taking life and ourselves too seriously. Almost every day something happens that has the potential to either upset or amuse us. Next time something like that happens to you, try to find the humor in it and you will fare much better than if you see it as a disaster." (Page 23)
In the final pages of this well-written book, Lewis says, "One of my oldest friends, who has seen me through every up and down imaginable, reminded me that God provides to all who grieve and look to Him "a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair...They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor" (Isa. 61:3) Little did I know that the Lord was going to prove Himself true to me, just as He promised."
