“Sometimes to get your life back, you have to face the death of what you thought your life would look like.”
― Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.  

“What if disappointment is really the exact appointment your soul needs to radically encounter God?”
― Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.

“…These seasons of suffering are not for nothing. They will grow you. They will shape you. They will soften you. They will allow you to experience God’s comfort and compassion. But you will find life-giving purpose and meaning when you allow God to take your painful experiences and comfort others. You will be able to share a unique hope because you know exactly what it feels like to be them.” – Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.

“We think we want comfort in the I-don’t-know times of life. But comfort isn’t a solution to seek; rather, it’s a by-product we’ll reap when we stay close to the Lord. What if the comfort and certainties we crave today are a deadly recipe for complacency that will draw our hearts further and further away from God?” – Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.

“And let’s be honest, if we weren’t ever disappointed, we’d settle for the shallow pleasures of this world rather than addressing the spiritual desperation of our souls. We don’t think about fixing things until we realize they are broken. And even then we don’t call in the experts until we surrender to the realization we cannot fix things on our own. If our souls never ached with disappointments and disillusionment, we’d never full admit and submit to our need for God. If we weren’t shattered we’d never know the glorious touch of the Potter making something glorious out of dust, out of us.” – Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.

“What if the worst parts of your life are actually gateways to the very best parts you’d never want to do without?” – Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.

“Feeling the pain is the first step toward healing the pain. The longer we avoid the feeling, the more we delay our healing. We can numb it, ignore it, or pretend it doesn’t exist, but all those options lead to an eventual breakdown, not a breakthrough.” – Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.

“Weak moments don’t make weak faith. Weak moments make us even more aware of our need to press in to faith.” – Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.

“Obedience is the daily practice of trusting God.” – Lysa TerKeurst, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.
