Cancer, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis are just a few of the chronic illnesses that plague many Americans, and Christians are not exempt. Living with a serious illness is not easy. The challenges extend far beyond the physical realm, and maintaining a strong Christian testimony is difficult. Growing in godliness and pleasing God do not come naturally.
In the midst of such complex challenges, even the most mature Christians need help. They need more than just shared life stories or practical tips for facing their disease. They need more than poignant illustrations to inspire them or amusing anecdotes to make them laugh. While each of these aspects is helpful, what sufferers need most is the encouraging truth of the Bible. Only the supernatural, unchanging Word of God can give genuine comfort and effective help.
"Healing for the Heart" is a devotional designed for Christians who are serious about seeking God's help in their time of illness. The entries are focused on Bible truths and are designed to provide encouragement, instruction, and gentle challenge. Strengthen your heart on a daily basis with this biblically-based and compassionately-shared truth.
EmilyEscondido, CA5 Stars Out Of 5This is a beautiful, encouraging, and needed bookFebruary 5, 2014EmilyEscondido, CAQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is, in short, amazing! Peggy knows that chronic illness is not "neat" or "convenient" and so she has written over a year's worth of devotions, so you can start at any time and finish whenever, and restart as you please. Each day is numbered and in each devotion she focuses on a specific truth from God's Word that is an encouragement to someone in trying health circumstances. Peggy has been quite sick herself, so she understands to different layers of difficulty that one goes through. She addresses many of these different areas of difficulty with caring, encouraging, and understanding words. She ends each devotional with a short prayer.
I would heartily recommend this dear book to other suffering a chronic illness, especially those that have a chronic illness that is more difficult.
I have found this book helpful in my own current journey of worsening health.
Thank you, Peggy, for obeying God's direction and writing this book to bring encouragement to those who really need it.
