Each of us has experienced bad days, and these bad days are often compounded by our focus on the “badness” of the situation. But Dr. Jack Hayford contends that,” in such times the Lord calls us to hear His voice.” And so, beginning with seven phrases uttered by Jesus on the cross, he constructs the model for godly behavior while enduring hardship. Insights include:
Father, forgive them for they know not what they do. To forgive those seeking to injure you is to remove yourself from their control.My God, my God, why have you forsaken Me? We can ask God the hard questions. Into Your hands I commit My spirit. Surrender your suffering to God and let go.How to Live Through a Bad Day is ideal for anyone who has experienced stress, pain, weariness, or an assault of character. Jack Hayford speaks the words of Jesus — the words of life that sustain and encourage us to live through our worst days.
