Welcome to the Blog Tour for Hope Amid the Pain by Leslie L. McKee, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! I have known Leslie for years in the reading world, and I’m so happy to be able to share about her book!
ABOUT THE BOOKTitle: 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. PURCHASE LINKS*: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | IndieBound | Christianbook | BookBub

EXCERPTOver the years, I’ve asked God a lot of questions. Why me? Why can’t I have something with a simple cure? Why do I have to have an invisible illness? Why do I look perfectly fine on the outside, despite what I’m feeling on the inside? What about my dreams? Will they ever come to fruition? It’s been over twenty-five years. I still don’t have answers to these and a host of other questions. I’ve questioned God—a lot—which is normal. I’ve shared my fears with Him. I’ve searched for meaning, peace, and acceptance. It didn’t happen overnight, but I’ve realized that God has plans for me—big plans, in fact. His are just different than the plans I had growing up. Some of those childhood dreams did occur, just not in the way I’d originally envisioned. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I have also been able to witness how He has used my experiences, including my pain, to prepare me for where I am now and what I am doing.
