Life often looks so very far from the reality we long for. Lysa TerKeurst deeply understands that. But she’s also discovered that whether we’re dealing with daily disappointments or life-altering loss, we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings.

It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way offers a safe guide, fresh biblical insight, and life-giving perspectives for living in between Eden and eternity. With grit, vulnerability, and honest humor, Lysa helps readers:

  • Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
  • Train themselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so they 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 them more than they can handle.
  • Shift their suspicion that God is cruel or reckless to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing them.
  • Know how to encourage a friend and help them navigate hard realities with real help from God’s truth.
