What to Do on the Worst Day of Your Life...Review

About the book:
There is no question that times are tough. People are losing their jobs, losing their homes, even losing their faith. In What to Do on the Worst Day of Your Life, pastor and author Brian Zahnd looks into the life of David to bring readers strength in the hope that they can overcome. Nobody knew adversity like King David. He had a call and an anointing on his life, and yet he had to find strength from the Lord daily to keep from losing what was rightfully his. Because he didn’t quit in the time of trouble, he fulfilled his destiny. You will be delighted at the way Pastor Zahnd uses David’s story to present 10 principles that will build hope and encouragement in your heart. Let the Holy Spirit establish these 10 truths in your spirit. With these 10 principles at work in your life, you can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat—even on the worst day of your life.

I absolutely loved this book. Truly a gem.

Brian Zahnd tells David's story from the bible and makes it relevant for us today. Before David became king he had, what could be called, the worst day of his life. After having been away from home a few days, David and his men returned to Ziklag to find it ransacked, burned and their families and riches taken by the Amalekites. Brian not only retells David's story, but he relates the actions that David took, to what we should do on our own worst days.

In this beautiful little book we are reassured that while God will give us trials, there is always a purpose. Through faith and hope we can always overcome. As Brian says, "In David's story we see he beauty of God's grace and find hope for our own troubled situations."

One of the things I enjoyed about this book is that it's practical, with real life situations and suggestions and reminders. It's one that I will read again.
