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.

The world seems to add a struggle to each persons life every year, and it seems like brokenness is becoming rampant. This book was encouraging and I really enjoyed reading it. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars, despite the profound thoughts, much of it was not really what I expected. I didn’t find myself being inspired afterwards. However, this is a wonderful book especially if you’re going through some strong hurts.

What stuck out the most to me was how spot on the author was about peoples behaviors when they hold on to the past. I am experiencing some of that in my life right now and its amazing how the words resounded with certain people in my life. This book does such a good job of calling out the sins and past we hold on to and helping us work through why we are holding on to it.
