Walking through fear to find the silver lining
Overcoming past disappointments and receive His blessings
Goolsby’s direct message in If It Had Not Been For The Lord is that everything we do is all for the Glory of the Lord and not ourselves. The author genuinely urges each person to let her own past failures help you to overcome your tribulations so that you too can receive the blessings that God has waiting for you. If It Had Not Been For The Lord encourages readers to go ahead and walk on through your fears. Her enthusiastic style of writing supports the message that it’s time to stop letting the devil beat you down - it’s time to beat him back and beat him down forever.
Goolsby creatively describes how God is omnipresent; the greater He is in each person, the less of Satan there is in the world. She recommends for each person to ask the Lord to help them to be obedient so that His blessings may fall down upon them. Goolsby believes that behind every cloudy storm that passes in each person’s life, there is a silver lining.
You don’t have to cry anymore, unless it’s tears of joy, because If It Had Not Been For The Lord will take readers to Jesus and you can trust Him to be your bridge to safety in any kind of troubling waters.
