Great Book Tiny Simple Clear Concise.
In this tiny book, Morgan presents ten strategies, principles, or rules for dealing with tough situations These rules spring from his observation of the Israelite situation as they stood trapped between the power of the Egyptian army and the impassibility of the Red Sea at the start of the exodus from Egypt.
The principles Morgan presents are simple, Biblical, and infused with the truth of the Holy Spirit.
I look forward to trying to follow these better in my own life I hope you find them useful as well.
This is definitely for Christians who are going through long, difficult situations, like job loss, bankruptcy, death, relationship struggles, getting arrested, serious medical issues, etc The advice is on target.
If you re early on in your trauma, this book is going to seem like a bunch of sappy Christian platitudes As you continue in the trauma cycle, and you re read the book, you re going to recognize many things the author discusses, because you have personally experienced and contemplated them At that point, I want you to know that everything else you read, which you haven t experienced yet, WILL BECOME RELEVANT Trauma is not chaotic The circumstance which caused the trauma might be chaotic, but the trauma process itself has a pattern to it I think that a large percentage of people, who experience prolonged trauma, think about suicide or at the very least, wish they were in a coma, because their reality is so painful and relentless It really helps to know that there is hope, and that life will get better.

This little book took only about an hour to read and packed a good punch for its short length The book answers the question, What can we learn from how God delivered the children of Israel at the Red Sea As the tagline says, The same God who led you in will lead you out I would recommend for people who enjoy learning from the Bible and Christian s going through a rough patch and needing a doctrinally sound reminder of God s reliability.
