But God, Wouldn’t I Be More Useful to You If I Were Healthy?

| March 2, 2017


For anyone who has lost a career because of chronic pain.

For anyone who has ever felt devastated, confused, or less-than because your health prevents you from working a formal job.

For anyone who is stuck at home, imprisoned in bed, feeling unable to do much of anything for anybody.

For anyone who gets up every day to take care of your family through the aches and pains, and wonders if it is enough.

For anyone who has so much to offer, but isn’t sure how to offer it in the midst of chronic pain and illness.

For anyone who have ever said to God…This doesn’t make sense. Wouldn’t I be more useful to you if I were healthy?

This book is for you.

When it comes to chronic pain and illness, perhaps no questions cause more confusion
than the ones that arise when you are pulled out of a thriving life of work that benefits the world, only to spend your hours, days, and weeks languishing in bed.

It just doesn’t make sense. Why, God? Why would you take away my thriving career when it took me years to get to this point? Why would you take away my ability to serve and help and contribute?

In this first booklet in the Chronic Pain and the Christian Life series, explore what it looks like to live a life of work, service, and rest, even when the pain doesn’t go away.
