When asked how they are doing, it’s not unusual for people to reply, “Pretty good, under the circumstances.” And yet, living “under the circumstances” can be a frustrating, unsatisfying, and even overwhelming existence. So many people feel trapped under the circumstances of life. But do the circumstances of life—whether they’re good or bad—have to determine how life is lived?
Judy Hampton insists that Christians don’t have to be trapped under the circumstances of life. She illustrates how God uses the circumstances of life both to bring His light into a dark world and to reveal areas in an individual’s life that don’t reflect His character. And He uses circumstances to conform His children into the image of His Son. With a blend of Scripture and personal anecdotes, Judy Hampton gives readers the tools to change their view of their circumstances from a purely human perspective to God’s perspective. It’s a change of view that allows readers to respond appropriately to the things life throws their way—living above the circumstances instead of under them.
