Facing Illness, Finding Peace
Ill health affects us all at some time in our lives. For many of us, the duration is short, and recovery is soon. Others must come to terms with a chronic progressive disease, or a life-threatening illness, which becomes a continuing part of life. The road ahead looks to be filled with fears, apprehensions, and anxieties, and too often, you may feel that you travel alone. And yet, from the beginning of the journey, the gentle voice of Jesus asks us if we will allow him to be our companion on this road. As you walk with him, this book offers companionship along the way – a guide to understanding the emotional impact of serious illness, an encouragement to share your thoughts with a friend, family member, or church leader, a source of comfort for the days when you are weary from the struggle, a reminder of Jesus’ everlasting love.
