Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Amanda Slikker's story begins on a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the US Naval Academy. Two months into her navy career, she was enjoying the first and, as it turns out, only rugby game she would ever play. During one of the plays, the head of one of the players slammed into her chin, throwing her jaw out of place and putting her in excruciating pain. This injury would change her life forever.
Amanda became a Christian as a child and was outspoken about her faith while at school. Even so, her beliefs were never challenged until she faced agonizing pain. She had countless surgeries, each one weakening her health a bit more. As time went on, she wondered why God was making her go through this unbelievable pain. She had been a healthy child growing up and did not know how to deal with this kind of suffering. She found herself questioning the truths she had learned from the Bible.
My Comfort in Affliction is a profoundly personal journey through Amanda's struggles with her faith. She shares her prayers, thoughts, and the Scripture that gave her peace and hope during her unexpected tribulations. God led Amanda through her physical pain and with His hand pulled her to the mountains filled with joy and peace. Her story is a testament to God's faithfulness and everlasting love.

In light of the continuous barrage of the "Health and Wealth Gospel," where we are told that it's really God's will for us to just be happy above all else, and if we aren't being healed, it's because we don't have enough faith, this book is a breath of fresh air. It focuses on real life from a real person's perspective. The author doesn't pretend that life is hunky dorey no matter what, but instead reminds the reader over and over again that growing in God's grace, being drawn closer to Him can be painful, but altogether more satisfying than any other path. Much in the way of Paul with his thorn in 2 Corinthians 12, we see how God doens't always heal us immediately because He wants us to rely soley on His grace. She reminds us that God loves us too much to leave us the way we are. We all have struggles in life, and we can all learn from Amanda's attitude that God developed in her over the years.
