I have taken a couple of exracts just to wet your apetite….mind this book is from a christian perspective.
“However deep the pit, God’s Love is deaper still”
Why do relationships break when a couple encounters a crisis like illness?
“When a couple encounters a crisis, it magnifies what’s already present in the relationship. Since Claudia and I happened to love each other deeply, and had worked on open communication, the crisis drove us to each other. Feeling of blame and anger against each other did not creep in. The crisis of illness merely brought to the surface and intensified feeling already present.”
According to John the best way to prepare for suffering is to work on a strong, supportive life when you’re healthy. You cannot suddenly fabricate foundations of strength; they must have been building all along.
The above extract got me thinking about my relationship with God. When I encounter crisis do I suddenly withdraw from Him or do I draw closer to Him?
This book will get you thinking and it will blow your mind. Please please read it. It will help you know what to say and what not to say when visitng the sick in hospital or even when dealing with a sick relative.
Let me not preEmpt the whole thing!
read 1 corinthians 13
“How do I help those who hurt?” The answer is “how do I Love?”
