Have you ever gone through a season of physical or emotional pain in which you needed God’s healing grace?
I’d like to share a new book my good friend Edward W. Hellman recently wrote and published: “Healing Grace.” Ed, who is an esteemed orthopedic and spinal surgeon in south Georgia, wrote this book for those who are discouraged from dealing with physical hardships such as chronic pain, emotional distress, cancer and other illnesses.
The first half of the book is a 40-day devotional (with a bonus day!) that uses Scripture to encourage and uplift the reader in hopes of drawing him/her closer to the Father.
“In some ways, each of us is a pastor and the sermons we preach include not only the words we speak but how we live our very lives,” Ed writes.
In the second half of the book, Ed provides 12-part biblical instructions for going through physical hardship. The sections include choosing your foundation wisely, preparing, resting, claiming your inheritance, praising and going forth in the Spirit.
Medical professionals can see up to one hundred patients a day, so Ed witnesses many people suffering.
Ed writes, “My prayer is that in reading this, you will be greatly encouraged and that the encouragement you receive will be a blessing to you but also that it will be so overflowing that it will flow out of you to others, so that they may reap the blessing as well.”
You may purchase “Healing Grace” at The Source Bookstore, located at Sherwood Baptist Church.
