Release Date: October 26, 2021

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.
In My Opinion
Let me start by saying I am blessed to not have chronic pain. But I know a couple someone who do deal with it, and as Leslie L. McKee states in Hope Amid the Pain, those of us who can only see the outside of a person sometimes never know what’s going on inside their bodies or their minds.
In this 60-day devotional, McKee shares her own struggles in her journey with chronic pain while encouraging others to HOPE (Hang On to Positive Expectations) through it all. It’s a book that will uplift and encourage women struggling with chronic pain and illness and open the eyes and hearts of those in their lives who maybe just don’t understand.
The paperback offers plenty of room to journal your thoughts and prayers, and if you’re reading the e-book, you’re going to want to keep a notebook or journal close by. The scripture passages went well with each of the short (less than five minutes of reading) devotionals. If you deal with chronic pain or have someone in your life who does, this book will assure you/them that you/they are not alone.
