The Hard Good: Showing Up for God to Work in You When You Want to Shut Down
(as of Oct 18,2021 10:33:09 UTC – Details)
Learn how to see the good, again, even after hard times.
What does it feel like to come back from something hard, to be able to hope again? Hard things are a part of life. Yet they don’t have to have the final word. They can become the keys to our greatest usability in the kingdom of God—that is, if we let God make good of them, rather than running away and refusing the growth we truly crave.
If we’re weary of being bossed by our emotions, the hard good can help bring a new way of living with healthy, managed emotions. Where we were once stuck in a place of what if, the transformational process God takes us through provides a compelling shift of perspective to what is. It is the way we not only come back from hard things but also emerge with a richer life.
In The Hard Good Lisa Whittle guides us on a powerful path to progress as we learn to:
- accept things we wish were different,
- apologize and forgive first,
- cheer for someone who gets what we want,
- open our hearts again when we’ve been hurt,
- find joy in the waiting,
- and show up when we want to shut down.
Written for those who desperately want to move forward, The Hard Good gives voice to the hard places we all have lived and Lisa’s clear directions as to where to go next.
Your hard place is never too hard for God. Allow it to change you, help you, and ready you for the greatest comeback you have ever known.

This Book Will Inspire You To:
Live with Healthy, Managed Emotions
In order to show up for our life, we must not ignore the signs that our emotions are taking over, and we need God to help us not to shut down. When we listen well, we are given insight into exactly where we need healing.
Discover how to conquer your bossy emotions with the strength of managed feelings instead.
Accept Something You Wish Were Something Different
Acceptance of something we wish were something different is, perhaps, hardest for humans because of our hidden belief that somehow, if we reject things, even in our mind, we prevent them from being true.
You’ll learn how to choose to acceptance and that even though it’s hard, it is a powerful good that God can use in your life to shape you.
Cheer For People Who Are Getting What You Want
It’s not always easy to accept someone else’s success or gain. Sadly, this is where a lot of us live, stewing for years over something someone else has that we never got.
Discover how to cheer for someone else without bitterness, so you can become an even more powerful and usable force for the kingdom of God.
Show Up When You Want to Shut Down
It can be so hard to stay open. But shutting down leaves us in a cycle of regret and inability for God to fully use us.
You’ll learn how to recognize when you are shutting down and what triggers it, so you can then work on not giving in to that anymore.
