I've learned that by realizing and understanding the purpose of God's Grace, one can be able to endure and overcome any crisis that may come in his/her way.

This book taught me how to confront my situations using God words. And I will never forget that God loves us just as he love his only begotten son Jesus Christ.

I also learned that Satan will tempt us through life challenges.but,if we can hold on to our faith in Jesus we will surely have victory at last.

Let's admit people fails, we tend to focus too much on our sufferings that we neglect to see that God's grace is upon us as He helps us in times of trouble. Yes, God is always with us, and by His grace, we can overcome every obstacle coming our way.

The lesson I learned is we are all god’s children. We are always in lord’s grace. The lord is always with us. He is there for us no matter what; he will guide us in our moments of happiness and grief. We can endure and overcome all our problems if we just believed in the lord. There will be problems in life but the lord will help us overcome it; so don’t pray that there be no obstacles in life, have faith in the lord and ask for strength and support to power through the obstacles present in life.

I learned that we should not see the past as a liability, instead, we should see it as a stepping stone by God. Gods has a reason for everything. It's a big lesson to all of us. We shouldn't settle for the past. We must move up to greater things and give glory to God. We should also try to encourage each other.

"so don’t pray that there be no obstacles in life, have faith in the lord and ask for strength and support to power through the obstacles present in life." this is so very well put into words.

I "loved" reading about all these other people's experiences, and learning of their perseverance and God's grace. We are often boxed in our own problems and world that we need to reminded of other sufferings too or even more than us. And that there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel, as they say. Nothing is impossible to Lord. Don't lose faith and stay strong.
This book is filled with hope, and I wouldn't call it a lesson more a reminder.

What I learned from this book is I should always be about my Father's business, helping others in any way I can. I already knew this, but the book made me think about it again!

I don't know that I learned anything new, but I can definitely agree that this book is excellent for comforting and inspiring both Christians and those who might not have committed to the faith yet.

It just strengthened my belief that in every difficulty, God's grace still follows and abides with me amidst the dark moments.
