The pain and challenges of living
with a chronic illness...
the God of All comfort is there to help us cope.
The God of All Comfort is based on the author's experience of living with chronic illness as well as that of seventeen other people who share their stories within the pages of this book. Illnesses include a variety of autoimmune system disorder, cancer, and Lou Gehrig's disease, as well well as several other chronic and serious illnesses. This book strives to help you recognize yourself in your straggles and feel less alone in your pain.
Each devotional issue illustrates God's involvement in the midst of pain.
These issues include:
Pain - Weakness - Identity - Loss of independence
Loneliness - Facing death
"There are four places to find comfort-on your knees to Jesus, in the Bible, in the arms of the Father, and by reading The God of All Comfort. You will draw genuine comfort from real people decimated by dealing with actual illness and disabilities, some like yours, some like mine. Drink in, inhale these devotions, and they will calm and soothe you like the balm of Gilead. Those in pain will keep this book close to their bedside."
