God of All Comfort draws readers into God's Word in order to find the strength, hope, and comfort to cope with the pain, limitations, and other challenges of living with chronic illness. God of All Comfort is based on the author's experience living with chronic illness as well as that of seventeen other people who share their stories within the pages of this book. Illnesses include a variety of autoimmune-system disorders, cancer, and Lou Gehrig's Disease, as well as several other chronic and serious illnesses. The book strives to help readers recognize themselves in their struggles and feel less alone in their pain. God's Word is the focal point of each devotional. Both the Bible verses and the anecdotes relate to issues those with serious illness deal with daily. These issues include pain, weakness, identity, loss of independence, loneliness, and facing death. Each devotional illustrates how God uses scripture to encourage us in the midst of pain.
