DEVOTIONAL FOR THOSE COPING WITH TRAGEDY: A Journey Back to God

Christian Publishing House
Free sample

This devotional book follows the author's own faith journey back to God. Significant life events can shake our world and distort our faith. Following life's tragedies, a common reaction is to become angry with God or to reject Him altogether. Examples of tragedies or traumas include life-changing events such as physical or sexual assault, destruction of one's home, the tragic death of a loved one, diagnoses of terminal diseases, divorce, miscarriages, or being a victim of a crime. Tragedies or traumas can cause feelings of anxiety, depression, shame, and guilt. After major tragedies, an individual may be locked in an unhealthy pattern of behavior due to depression and anger. Peacefulness is not within the heart of a person having difficulty with the aftermath of a tragedy. Getting past the event may take years and be fraught with sadness.

In this devotional book, the reader will be able to assess their own progress along the pathway back to God. Explanations of the relationship of anxiety, depression, shame, and guilt are provided. Although there are many self-help therapeutic books and resources, this devotional book presents suggestions for coping with tragedies and regaining faith. Along each step of the journey, meaningful Scriptures are provided to help the reader connect back to their faith and to become closer to God.

 Caregivers are dedicated people who support the daily needs of their loved ones. Loved ones who cannot function independently, may require this type of assistance for weeks or even years. Caregivers know that this service to others can be trying, exhausting, and exhilarating. Family members of those who have chronic or debilitating diseases and conditions, such as cancer, brain injury, Alzheimer’s Disease, and children with disabling conditions, give their time and effort to provide help to another. Caregivers interact with medical staff, look after the daily needs of their loved one, and provide spiritual and mental support. The topics covered in this book, Devotional for Caregivers: Strength Through Faith are based on actual caregiver experiences. Within the pages of this book, the reader can find topics such as supporting the physical needs of others, making sense of doctor’s reports, strengthening faith, finding joy in the little things, requesting assistance from others, and taking care of the caregiver.

Throughout the book, common themes emerge to support caregivers. The reader will find interesting Bible Scriptures, offering a Christian perspective, for handling issues that may arise. These inspiring passages will assist the caregiver in finding peace and faith as they travel their journey as a caregiver. Although caregivers may not know how long they will play this role, they take on the responsibility without any question. Taking care of others is often mentioned in the Bible and, as noted in this devotional, this self-sacrificing, highly valued, and often challenging service will ultimately be rewarded.
