Third Day guitarist Mark Lee is no stranger to heartache and hopes deferred; the road to success is never traveled without missteps along the way. Life is messy and uncertain and full of surprises. And one of the best things he's ever done is let go of his expectations about how life should be in order to embrace life as it is a moment-by-moment walk with God.
Hurt Road is the engaging true story of a man who, as a teen, found in music a refuge from the uncertainties of life. Who set out to discover a better way to live than constantly struggling to make sure life turned out the way he planned it. Who stopped substituting what's next for what's now and learned the truth--that coming or going, God's got us.
Poignant, funny, and thoughtful, Hurt Road dares anyone feeling knocked down or run over by their circumstances to give up control to the One who already has the road all mapped out. Includes black and white photos
My thoughts: This is an excellent book! I enjoyed reading more about Mark Lee, who plays the guitar for Third Day. I love how he is very honest, and especially appreciated how he addresses that God doesn't promise us an easy life when we chose to follow Him and that just because we are obedient does not mean we will always feel blessed.
I highly recommend this great book!
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
