Review: Blessed in the Darkness: How All Things Are Working for Your Good by Joel Osteen


Find comfort in dark times and grow your trust and faith in God with this inspiring and insightful guide from Lakewood Church pastor and #1 New York Times bestselling author Joel Osteen.

All of us will go through dark times that we don’t understand: a difficulty with a friend, an unfair situation at work, a financial setback, an unexpected illness, a divorce, or the loss of a loved one. Those types of experiences are part of the human journey. But when we find ourselves in such a place, it’s important that we keep a positive perspective. Joel Osteen writes that if we stay in faith and keep a good attitude when we go through challenges, we will not only grow, but we will see how all things work together for our good. Through practical applications and scriptural insight, Blessed in the Darkness focuses on how to draw closer to God and trust Him when life doesn’t make sense.

If we will go through the dark place in the valley trusting, believing, and knowing that God is still in control, we will come to the table that is already prepared for us, where our cup runs over.


Joel Osteen’s positivity and encouragement have been a source of inspiration to me for many years. Depending on where your spirituality lies or not, what always stands out from his commentary is a positive narrative. Say what you want about him but in a world like today, two things we need more than anything, positivity and hope.

Blessed in the Darkness, probably rises to the top if my favorites from him. We are in such hard times right now and more people than ever are struggling to find the light in their darkness. This book is such an uplifting ray of sunshine promoting staying in faith and never losing hope to stay positive.

Through his own personal examples, everyday people, you are made to not feel alone. You feel as if someone has your back to let you know that no matter how bad things seem, there is a reason we don’t know but we will come out bigger and better. Many times we might disagree but through trials and tribulations, we we grow strength and find our way. It’s through our deepest desperation, we find an invigorating strength.

For those of you who are faith based, this is a timeless book that you will find comfort and solace. Whenever you feel challenged by life, this can be one of those go to for upliftment and clarity to stay rooted in faith. I thought it was a wonderful book for those who this will speak to. For my faith based readers, I’d recommend adding this to your list.
