It's Not Supposed to Be This Way by Lysa TerKeurst Book Summary

New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst unveils her heart amid shattering circumstances and shows readers how to live assured when life doesn't turn out like they expected.

What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful?

Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.

Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she's also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In It's Not Supposed to Be This Way, Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor, helps us to:
Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give us more than we can handle.Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us.Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.

It’s not supposed to be like thisGood book.Score: 5/5

Page 99.Gods presence is definitely in this book. So glad I made this purchase back at TheRock church SD. Not quite done with this book and i’m in no rush. This book by far is helping get through what I am currently going through. Every word, every page, every scripture hits home. I AM NOT ALONE. Thank you, Lysa for reminding me and others that getting through the next 86,400 seconds we are not alone and Jesus is walking with us EVERY step if we keep our focus on him. THANK YOU!.Score: 5/5

What does Adam and Eve have to do with itI really like the author’s talented writing ability and I genuinely felt for her personal struggles, but my goodness, “Adam and Eve” this and this and that, “dust to clay” over and over....”why did God do this?” “How could he let this happen?”, SERIOUSLY? I couldn’t keep reading..Score: 1/5

A Must ReadIf you are in a place where life is falling apart and you are walking through something that you thought would never be the way it is then this book is for you. Lysa navigates this book with love and compassion. As you read you these pages you will know that you are not alone. Your it’s not supposed to be this way may not be a broken marriage like hers was the principles of the book fit any life situation. The book has Eleven chapters with reflection questions, cling to statements from the chapter and a prayer. The book is not something that you will want to speed through but process. This quote from the Lysa summed the book up for me though it was in chapter two “Dust doesn’t have to signify the end. Dust is often what must be present for the new to begin.”.Score: 5/5

ThankfulThis book really helped me during a time of disappointment that I had never experienced before. It was beautifully written in a way that made me feel like I was talking to a friend, while also giving me scriptures that I hold onto today. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to be encouraged through the Word. Thank you Lysa for allowing God to use you to help me!.Score: 5/5

EXCEEDED MY NEEDThis book has God written all over it. I mean, it’s like He was sitting right there next to her when she wrote this. This met me exactly where I was and I thank God for it. But God also gave us a choice and I’m so glad that Ms. Lysa chose to release this to us..Score: 5/5

InspirationAfter reading this book it reminded me that what i face painfully is a reason, God understands and cares, and he uses our dust(things that upset us) for making us stronger. thank you Lysa for writing this book it brought such encouragement to me ..Score: 5/5

Good CryI cried from page one through the epilogue. What wonderful wisdom and insight this author gives and it was the perfect time in my life to choose to read this book. The lessons seemed to be coinciding with my real life. At the end of each chapter was a place for self reflection. She brought the reader into her thoughts and forced you to take a look at your life and ponder yourself for a moment. Instead of it being just a great story, it was a great way to pull the chapter closer to yourself and be a part of the lesson..Score: 5/5

AmazingI picked up this book because the title fit my life in a few words. I didn’t always read so consistently but every time I read the book it picked up on the very thing I was walking out in my life atm. Lisa is very raw and candid and so much appreciated when it comes to dealing with deep disappointment you can’t seem to shake. Highly recommend this read..Score: 5/5
