Hope Amid the Pain JustRead Blog Tour

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Hope Amid the Pain by Leslie L. McKee, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

Hope Amid the Pain
Title: Hope Amid the Pain 
Author: Leslie L. McKee 
Publisher: Ambassador International 
Release Date: October 26, 2021 
Genre: Devotional / Christian / Chronic Illness 

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. 

HOPE Amid the Pain: Hanging On to Positive Expectations When Battling Chronic Pain and Illness by Leslie L. McKee is the latest book I have had the pleasure of reading. Leslie L. McKee is a "new to me author". The Title really intrigued me! 

Chronic Illness is unfortunately all too familiar to so many in today's society, especially amongst Women. Christian women are not exempt from Chronic Illness. Many times those who suffer from Chronic Illness wondering if God is punishing them and cannot understand why they suffer so greatly. Those who suffer from Chronic Illness also feel that they have no purpose in life. How can Women with Chronic Illness find their Purpose or HOPE in this world? 

WOW, just WOW! I have recently been diagnosed with High Blood Pressure, Major Anxiety and Type 2 Diabetes. I have my "low days" when I have to take a "Recliner Day" and just rest. I often feel like I am not accomplishing my daily tasks and tending to my Husband and 3 Teenage boys properly. This 60 day Devotional has given me HOPE and Encouragement that God is doing a good work and he has a plan for me, throughout the Illness and all. I really appreciate Leslie sharing her 25yr journey through Chronic Illness. I really like the layout and format of this Devotional. Each Devotional has a Scripture Passage, a Devotional to read that corresponds to the Scripture, a prayer and a reflection. I HIGHLY recommend this Devotional to anyone who struggles with finding Encouragement through their Chronic Illness! VERY Encouraging BOOK!
