About this deal

Brooke's passion is spurring on the women God leads to her sphere of influence, inspiring their hearts to keep their strength and hope at the foot of the cross, to trust in the Great Shepherd to one day heal them completely in glory, even though for now they are suffering on earth. There is so much more about Christ suffering in us, feeling our infirmities, being under the yoke and bearing the burden of our afflictions and our anxieties. I was looking for more deep insight in living with chronic illness and the way out of making an idol of it, letting it take over life and lead into dark thoughts.

Brooke's passion is spurring on the women God leads to her sphere of influence, inspiring their hearts to be a living testimony in Christ and a light in the darkness.This book taught me so much more about my battle with my chronic illnesses and that god put me through this for a reason. Unfortunately in today’s world many people have bought into ideals like the prosperity gospel because of how attractive it sounds, but there is an entire group of people fully ignored and/or unjustly judged. He was helping to complete the full story of Christ's afflictions still to be endured for Christ's church. Clearly the agony and how our Lord would be treated and killed was within God the Father's direct and ordained will. Those of us with chronic illness are always hoping for a panacea, which the medical field just can’t provide.

Unfortunately, there was a basic, or maybe not so basic, paradigm shared in the first chapter of the book that I believe many will question. My only complaint is that the author tends to state the same phrase of a Bible verse followed immediately by the Bible verse itself in the same terms, which becomes very repetitious, instead of paraphrasing first.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It will be so helpful to me to have the personal stories and all of the many wonderful scripture to refer back to when I am feeling so down. In Chronic Love, Brooke Bartz reveals a deeply raw and descriptive account of life with a chronic and debilitating illness, and she shares with readers how comfort and strength can be found through the Truth in God's Word. I am so quick to whine when suffering, so this book was an excellent reminder of where my focus should be when going through painful experiences or illnesses. The idea that God ordains chronic illness, gives it to people for His purposes is utterly disagreeable for me.
