Product Description

Why is this happening to me? You feel overlooked, deprived, even resentful—these are the side effects of chronic illness your doctor failed to mention. Although you try to see the bright side, your outlook is often overcast by the chronic nature of your condition. While others appear to enjoy good health, you struggle for sensible answers. Like any loss, the loss of health—must be grieved. Pulling from her experience as a caregiver and counselor, June Hunt compassionately takes you through the grieving process, showing you where to find comfort and answers in the Word of God. Enjoy getting biblical insight and practical advice from someone who "gets it."

Have you asked...
• Why is this happening to me?
• Is God punishing me? Has my sin brought on this condition?
• If I have enough faith, will God heal me?
• How can my life have purpose now?

Covering everything from anger and fear to loneliness and hopelessness, June Hunt begins the book with a "definition and characteristic" section which addresses the common feelings felt by those with a chronic illness or impairment.

Using the story of Joni Eareckson Tada as an example, June explains the 5 stages of sorrow and the common causes of bitterness that bubble up when facing chronic pain. Be encouraged as you see how the Lord helped Joni process her paralysis, her chronic pain, and even breast cancer—and how He will help you. Experience the peace that comes from realizing that the emotions you feel are normal and experience the joy that comes from realizing the Lord's purpose behind the pain.
