Have you ever made a mistake so big that you felt overwhelmed by the weight of it? Has the shame of your sin made you feel so lost that you felt that God could never reach you or hear your cry? Did your actions not only hurt the ones you love but ruined their perfect lives as well?
Joy Will Come is a story of a gifted teenage girl with the perfect Christian life and the perfect Christian family who was suddenly wrecked by the hidden secret of sin, pregnancy and shame.
While her friends were busy enjoying their senior year of high school and making plans to attend college, Lindsay was trying to hide the growing bump of an unplanned pregnancy while trying to fight the spiritual battle of losing her joy…carrying the guilt and shame she had brought on herself, her family and her God.
Lindsay and her family's story is one of God's unconditional love and His redemptive plan, which He put into action in the Garden of Eden. This is a story told through two voices, Lindsay's and her mother, Scarlet's, who leads a ministry of her own. Their story is our story. It's a story of God's love, so pure and so powerful that it can reach all the way through our sin and shame to touch us with love and bring us back to His heart, back into His arms of redemption. No sin, no shame or rebellious heart can keep you separated from His ultimate plan to restore and reunite you with Him. The purpose of this book is not just to tell their story of sin, shame and confusion, but to tell His story of redemption and encourage you that your joy will come.
No matter where you are in life, no matter what mistake, habit, life choice or sin has derailed you from your destiny; He longs to wrap His arms around you and forgive you and bring you back to His lap to restore your joy and peace. He longs to show you that you can laugh, love and live again in Him. Let this story minister to you or the ones you love and be YOUR first step on YOUR path to YOUR restoration. YOUR Joy Will Come.
