Book Review: Overcoming the Hurt: 60 Thoughts on Life’s Temptations, Trials, and Triumphs

Overcoming the Hurt: 60 Thoughts on Life's Temptations, Trials, and Triumphs
SYNOPSIS:
Adversity is inescapable; temptations and trials are a fact of life. That’s what makes this 60-day devotional a must-read guide for Christians of all ages. Verse after verse reveals a sovereign God who stands with us in our trials—He is the Father of “suffering with.” As we walk in the shoes of a fellow struggler, we discover that knowing our Creator is infinitely more important than understanding our hardships.
BOOK REVIEW:

Seeing this book, I just want to cry. I don’t know why and it sounds dramatic… but I feel hurt just by reading and seeing the cover. I hate to say I’m not enduring with pain but I also hate to say I’m enduring with pain. Oh, why am I so confusing?

DRAMA OVEEEEEEEEEEEEERR! I’m so sorry for that.. The feels, just the feels!

As a person, it’s not easy to endure with pain. It’s hard to ignore when in reality.. it seems like it’s the end of the world. There are many reasons to be hurt.. but there are also many reasons to be happy. I love the idea of this book. This book gives light and hope to those who are hurt.

All of us endure with this feeling. It’s inevitable and so we must know how to handle it. We can’t be used to such ‘cause it’s not like having to live happy—to be happy is different from enduring with pain. It’s not even close to similar.

I think the authors of this book for being my friend. They’re not actually a personal friend but, this book—their writing, served as a stand for me. It’s like I’m a doll that can’t stand without a hand.

I don’t know but when I try to read this book, it makes me feel sad even though I’m not hurt. I think it’s because it hurts me knowing there are people who are badly hurt. I mean, they won’t buy this book if they weren’t feeling such.. right? This book gave me so much to remember. Thank you for the reminders and the positive thoughts from this book! My favorite parts of the book were the Faith tools. (:

I think that’s all I can say about this book. I would like to recommend this to all people who badly needs advice and help on how to overcome obstacles. Happy reading!
