Invisible Illness, Visible God Review

Great new review for Invisible Illness, Visible God on Amazon today! Minnie writes:

I can't say enough about this devotional. It is so comforting to read, especially if you yourself are going through any kind of trial: illness, job loss, relationship problem, etc. It is filled with God's word and promises but also filled with very real emotions that we all experience at different times of our lives. It is hard to use as a daily devotional because I want to read it all at once (it's that good!). 

Amazon is sold out right now, but Barnes & Noble online has it in stock and they also do free shipping on orders $25 and up. 

I have it in stock here on Hope Is My Anchor too, if you would like a signed copy. I hope you will check it out!

Dear Lord...and Invisible Illness Chats!

I LOVE this prayer from Karlton Douglas:

Prayer: Dear Lord, heal us please! But if you don’t, then send comfort from the Holy Spirit as we await our new bodies. Amen.

Received in the Rest Ministries Encouragement for You devotional. Check it out, some good stuff! 

Are you going to Invisible Illness Week?  Each day at 1pm Central time they are having a chat and a special speaker joining in. Monday is Christine Miserandino, popularly known for her article, The Spoon Theory (if you haven't read it, SO good for anyone with a chronic illness and their loved ones and to help others understand what it's like). Just go to and they will be posting questions for us to comment on, along with some special guests.  My Monday is going to be CRAZY busy, but I'm hoping to drop in. 

Meanwhile...the above prayer was encouraging to me. God is sovereign...that's another thing that we choose to put our faith in here. I was just telling a friend that I need to be content to live in whatever circumstance God has for me today. But as I wait for my pinched nerve to heal...I'm not always so patient!  (Looking forward to that new body!)  But God is good, and continues to walk with us day by day--and we need to continue to feed on his love for us and to rely on him moment by moment.
