I always think of James 4:15, which says, “What you ought to say is, ‘If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.’” So, with that in mind: If the Lord wants me to*, I will live and write a book for people who are waiting for healing that hasn’t yet come.
I believe there are many people whose faith will be strengthened by a deep dive into the Scriptures about why people are not always healed and how that reality reconciles with the truth of God’s love for us.
I have met some Jesus-followers who are having the struggle of their lives with their health, and at the same time, their spirits are taking a beating. They have questions, disappointment that is difficult to express, and a feeling that the pat answers they’ve heard about suffering don’t go deep enough to bring them comfort or resolution.
I’ve been there, and I want to help lift their spiritual load by shining a light on some truth from God’s Word that can help give them clarity and set them free. It certainly won’t be the first book written on that topic, but I feel an incredible urgency to address it.
And that’s what I’m working on right now.
