God Over Good

{This post contains affiliate links. For more info, read our full disclosure.}

My reading is life has definitely taken on a certain tone lately. It seems many of the books entering the book market are addressing the wrestle we all encounter at some point in life. From Lysa TerKeurst’s new book It’s Not Supposed to be this Way, to Annie F. Downs’ Remember God, and Luke Norsworthy’s God Over Good.

Saving Your Faith by Losing Your Expectations of God

Luke Norsworthy is a new author for me. I heard Norsworthy first on Annie F. Downs That Sounds Fun! podcast, and decided I wanted to give God Over Good a shot. 

Norsworthy tackles a lot of tough questions in the pages of this book. The questions are raw and real and entirely relatable. Some of the questions he asks were questions I didn’t realize I had until I saw them written on the page.

But rather than leaving you with just a bunch of lingering questions, Norsworthy reminds that there’s another side. A place where we don’t have to have all of the answers. But we can still rest in complete faith in God. 

This book was a reminder that we won’t have all of the answers in this lifetime.

And yet.

And yet there is hope. There is a resurrected king who is loving us and caring for us despite what we see or believe. 

“Maturity in faith has always required acceptance of how God doesn’t fit into the mold of what we would like God to be.” 

We have to set aside our pre-conceived notions and expectations about God. He won’t fit inside the mold we’ve created for him. But as we get to know Him more, we sit in the tension of the known and unknown. And our faith is greater and stronger because it can hold the tension of the questions of the unknown.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
