Getting Through Today

(5 customer reviews)

By Elaine Starner



“Lord, help! I need help!”
That’s probably my most-oft-uttered prayer. The second-most frequent
Is “Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
My journey through this life has many stretches of bumpy roads, puzzling detours, and even sojourns in grim wilderness. I needed to know: What difference does it make to believe in a living God? Followers of Jesus may believe in a perfect life coming someday in the future, but what about today? How do I get through today?
This book is a collection of reflections on what my hope knows about today.
You’ll soon discover that I don’t have all the answers, but I’d like to point you to the One who does. Let’s just call this a conversation between pilgrims on the way home.

    I’ve enjoyed reading daily installments from Getting Through Today – what a great title! It says it all, and I sometimes need to be reminded not to trudge through the day, but to dance in anticipation of great things. Thanks for putting a spring back in my step with the confident expectation Christ provides.

    These pages bring HOPE into our everyday lives. I am thankful that Elaine chose to follow the Spirit’s leading and pen these hope-filled messages. The reader will find these four books to be inspirational and filled with Scripture, yet easy to read.

    I am enjoying my journey through these pages – aren’t we blessed to have a loving heavenly Father who knows and loves us and a Savior, Jesus Christ, who stands beside us along life’s sometimes rocky paths.

    What a challenge every day… So easy for me to see reminders in each lesson of my need to trust.
