Being Made Well and Whole
We live in a busy world today, don’t we? Or maybe it’s always been busy, but it’s a matter of perspective for the ones living it. Being so busy though, it’s easy to be hurt, in any number of ways; and healing can be a long, bumpy road. But no matter what the cause, we can count on being made well and whole again, like Jenny Simmons writes about in Made Well.
Finding Wholeness through Tears, Joys, and the Everyday
From the woman fighting cancer to the man who has lost his child to the girl sinking into depression, so many of us are engaged in daily battles as we long for healing. When he walked the earth, Jesus said to an unwell man, “Do you want to be made well?” His invitation stretched beyond physical healing–he sought to restore the soul. The same invitation stands for us today.
For anyone struggling on the journey toward wholeness, singer/songwriter Jenny Simmons offers a resting place and a friend along the way. With personal insight into emotional pain, she invites readers to encounter a God who is working out their restoration–often in surprising “half-baked” ways. Her humorous and inspirational prose lights a path toward wholeness. Anyone trying to find their way to spiritual, mental, and emotional healing will benefit from Jenny’s vulnerable and compassionate stories of being made well in the midst of a messy life.
In between school, work, marriage, and every other part of your life, there is bound to be hard times. Whether you or someone you love suffers from physical, emotional, or mental pain and anguish, it can take a lifetime to heal. And “feeling better”, although it sounds wonderful, doesn’t always happen to us.
But it should, shouldn’t it? God, who loves us and made us in His image, doesn’t want this for us, right?
Humans are no longer perfect, and there is no garden. But as Christians, we are called to be Christ-like and love ourselves and our neighbors as He does. And you know what? That includes you. Not just in the general sense either, but God loves you. He made you, and He knows everything you’ve done and will do!
He is the key to all healing, to all “feeling better” in this world. We must learn, sometimes more than once, to trust and lean on Him. And the author, Jenny Simmons, uses stories of pain, healing, and faith in her book, Made Well. She has a great mix of faith, love, tears and laughter, all leading us back to being made well and whole again.
