From the Inside Flap
Life is difficult. Life for every person on earth is a challenging journey with or without God. Those who invite God to join them on this adventure believe that when bad things happen they can trust God to be present and work on their behalf.
But because we never know when, where, or how God is going to show up, we often wonder: Just exactly how does He go about the business of helping us when we dont know what to do?
Henry Cloud and John Townsend believe God has given us instructions on how He makes a way for us when we call on Him. They believe that, just as you would exercise faith in a doctor by following his advice to get well physically, if you follow Gods eight principles in this book, you can thrive relationally, emotionally, and spiritually.
These principles offer a groundbreaking new approach to recognizing when God is present and how He works His will in our lives.THE PRINCIPLES OF THE WAY
- Begin your journey with God
- Choose your traveling companions wisely
- Place high value on wisdom
- Leave your baggage behind
- Own your faults and weaknesses
- Embrace problems as gifts
- Take life as it comes
- Love God with all you are
As clinical psychologists, the authors deal daily with real people facing real problems, so this book is not just psychological or biblical theory: In fact, Part II of God Will Make a Way shows the principles at work in twelve key areas of life: dating, marriage, sex, conflict, parenting, fear, lost love, addictions, anger, depression, weight loss, and personal goals.
God Will Make a Way is more than a remarkably helpful book. It is a life system that captures Gods wisdom for coping with our most difficult problems.

It is essential for us to understand God's methods for success if we are to discover it for ourselves. If we want a life that works, we need to understand how we got into such thinking that makes life not work -- (usually by going our own way). Case studies and scripture will turn you once again in the right direction and get you back on track. We must know what we are doing that doesn't work, before we can change and start doing what does work. God's method is the only prescription for what ails us. Very practical and enlightening for the person who knows little of why they do what they do.
