ABOUT THE BOOK
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 see our lives in the context of God’s bigger story. Whether we’re dealing with daily disappointments or life-altering loss, we can find unexpected strength as we learn what it means to wrestle well between our faith and our feelings.

It's Not Supposed To Be This Way
FINDING UNEXPECTED STRENGTH WHEN DISAPPOINTMENTS LEAVE YOU SHATTERED
by lysa terkeurst
Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? Bible teacher Lysa TerKeurst deeply understands daily disappointments and life-altering loss. By walking through her own valley, she’s discovered that in God we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings.
In this 2-week, six-session video Bible study, we will offer a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspectives for living in between Eden and eternity.
With solid truth, and gut-honest vulnerability, Lysa will help you:
Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better
process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
Train yourself to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so you 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 you more than you can handle.
Shift your suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is
protecting and preparing you.
Know how to encourage friends and help them navigate hard realities with real help
from God’s truth.
This study includes videos, discussion questions, and activities for groups,
plus personal study reflection materials and Scripture passages for in-between sessions.
