The Pendulum: Come Back Swinging Through the Difficult Times by Rickie Rush
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“You Haven’t Missed It; You’re Right on Time! Many of God’s people feel guilty for going through difficult seasons. We think depression is spiritual weakness. In challenging circumstances, we ask: “God, where are You?” We consider the state of our lives and become discouraged, assuming we are not where God wants us to be. But what if we are?
What if the very circumstances that threaten to destroy us are the very things that launch us into our God-ordained moments of destiny? In The Pendulum, Pastor Rickie Rush shows you that there is a time for everything under heaven.
The Pendulum by Rickie Rush is an interesting book that got my attention and as well as it got me to thinking. Everyone seems to think that once/if you’re a Christian then life is filled with unicorns and pixie dust. How I wish that were true, but it isn’t. Christian deal with all the same life issues, the same difficult times that everyone else does. We have all the same triumphs and tragedies. And just like everyone else, sometimes we just don’t know how to get back up and fight.
However, in this book, the author shows us the qualities and traits of those that do get up, that do fight back in the difficult seasons. Those that know who and what they are fighting against.
I especially enjoyed reading this book. I found myself and my story on more than one page. This is a book that I will require a second look in the coming year.
