God Will Make a Way: What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do
Paperback - Apr 29 2006
by Henry Cloud(Author), John Townsend(Author)
In this best-selling, award-winning book, now in paperback, Drs. Cloud and Townsend introduce eight persuasive principles that demonstrate how God enters both the heart-breaking situation and the life looking for more. These principles are applied to readers' lives so that their relationships will be better, they'll have more control over their lives, and their spiritual hunger will be satisfied.
From the Inside Flap
Life is difficult. Life for every person on earth is a challenging journey – with or without God. Those who invite God to join them on this adventure believe that when bad things happen they can trust God to be present and work on their behalf.
But because we never know when, where, or how God is going to show up, we often wonder: Just exactly how does He go about the business of helping us when we don’t know what to do?
Henry Cloud and John Townsend believe God has given us instructions on how He makes a way for us when we call on Him. They believe that, just as you would exercise faith in a doctor by following his advice to get well physically, if you follow God’s eight principles in this book, you can thrive relationally, emotionally, and spiritually.
These principles offer a groundbreaking new approach to recognizing when God is present and how He works His will in our lives.
THE PRINCIPLES OF THE WAY
- Begin your journey with God
- Choose your traveling companions wisely
- Place high value on wisdom
- Leave your baggage behind
- Own your faults and weaknesses
- Embrace problems as gifts
- Take life as it comes
- Love God with all you are
As clinical psychologists, the authors deal daily with real people facing real problems, so this book is not just psychological or biblical theory: In fact, Part II of God Will Make a Way shows the principles at work in twelve key areas of life: dating, marriage, sex, conflict, parenting, fear, lost love, addictions, anger, depression, weight loss, and personal goals.
God Will Make a Way is more than a remarkably helpful book. It is a life system that captures God’s wisdom for coping with our most difficult problems.
