Welcome to the Blog Tour for Hope Amid the Pain by Leslie L. McKee, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Hope Amid the Pain
Title:  Hope Amid the Pain 
Author:  Leslie L. McKee 
Publisher:  Ambassador International 
Release Date:  October 26, 2021 
Genre:  Devotional / Christian / Chronic Illness 

Why me? Is God punishing me? Is my faith not strong enough for God to heal me? How can I achieve my dreams? What’s my purpose? 

If you’re someone living with a chronic illness or chronic pain, these are just a few of the questions you’ve likely asked on more than one occasion. You may feel overlooked or even resentful. You try to stay positive, but some days it’s hard. It’s natural to feel this way and grieve, but it’s still possible to have a hope-filled life. God has a purpose for the pain. 

Christians aren’t immune from pain and illness, but we don’t have to go through it alone. Jesus promised that He would “never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV). 

Millions of women suffering from chronic pain and illness want the reassurance they’re not alone. The devotions in HOPE Amid the Pain are written by a chronic pain warrior with over twenty-five years’ experience and will point the reader to hope and encouragement. It’s possible to Hang On to Positive Expectations (HOPE) even amid the pain. 
 
 
 
EXCERPT:

--INTRODUCTION--

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

—Romans 8:28

God promises to use all things for His good. For those living with chronic pain and illness, it could be hard to believe that’s true. But He sees the big picture. He offers hope for those who feel hopeless, comfort in times of trouble, courage to squash fears, and strength to take that next step.

Dear friend, I don’t know what you’re going through, and I don’t presume to know how you feel. But I do know what it’s like to live with chronic pain and illness. I know what it’s like to question God and wonder why others are healed while I’m still in pain. Yet I also know where to turn when I feel like I can’t continue and am ready to give up. I know where to find strength to take that next step, and I know where to find hope for the future. All of it can be found in one place—in one person—Jesus, the One Who is Hope!

With HOPE Amid the Pain, I share some Scripture verses, quotes, and perspectives that have helped me over the twenty-five-plus years I’ve dealt with chronic pain and illness. I pray that you can find hope and comfort in these pages when the waves of life threaten to overwhelm you.
