Invisible Wounds – Hope When You’re Hurting
There’s a new book in town I just have to share with ya’ll. Author, Melinda Means, has a heart for hurting people. She’s struggled with physical pain for years and understands first hand how hard that is. Emotional pain and physical pain are something a lot of us quietly and invisibly endure. If you knew Melinda like I do, you’d understand why I’m so excited SHE wrote this book.
I’m including the info for her new book, along with an excerpt.
If you or someone you know need a gargantuan size of hope while you’re hurting, make sure and connect and share this hope-FULL resource.
Do you walk around looking perfectly fine, but feeling deeply wounded?
Are you nursing spiritual, physical or emotional wounds that no one else can see?
In the midst of your grief and pain, have you ever felt guilty or overwhelmed by your doubts and questions about God’s goodness:Where is He? Why would He allow this suffering?
Fear or shame keeps you quiet. You live alone with your invisible wounds.
It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, God designed us for community. He isn’t afraid of our raw honesty, frustration and desperate questioning. He just wants us to come to Him.
When we seek the Healer instead of the healing, our painful journeys will lead us to freedom, joy and the unshakeable hope that heals. Hope that is not dependent on a result or an outcome. Hope that doesn’t disappoint.
Melinda Means understands the isolation, grief and questioning that accompanies hidden hurts.
For 20 years, she has walked a long, lonely, difficult road of chronic pain and illness — both hers and her son’s. In Invisible Wounds, she transparently shares her struggle with the tough spiritual questions and raw, dark emotions that often accompany suffering.
Seven brave, beautiful women share their invisible wounds in these pages, too.
Revealing their pain for this book often brought them to tears. Yet, each one gladly went to some very dark, vulnerable places. They believed God wanted to use their heartache to relieve someone else’s.
