Less Than Perfect - The Resilient Life
The Resilient Life
Overcoming the Crises and Anxieties of Life through Christ
by Paul Chappell
We all face obstacles, difficulties, trials, and heartaches. Without resilience, we go through life increasingly flattened—beaten down by the multiplied challenges we face. Thankfully, God created us with the capacity to rebound, to overcome. He made the human spirit with a kind of resilience that can persevere through incredible tragedy or pain.
But while human resilience may enable us to get through a specific need, there is a deeper, fuller, more comprehensive resilience available to those who know Christ. In Christ, we can experience a resilience that doesn’t just get through difficulty, but triumphs over it.
With over four decades of pastoral ministry experience, Dr. Paul Chappell writes with understanding and compassion for the tribulations of life, coupled with insight into the promises of God and help from His Word to enable us to overcome.
In these pages, learn what it means to experience resilience through these common experiences:
- The Unknown
- Personal Need
- Political Opposition
Most of all, discover how to keep your focus on Christ as He enables you to press forward in the resilient life.
“These things i have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” —John 16:33
