5 Stars Out Of 5
Strengthen My Spirit by Charles Spurgeon (Lightly Updated Devotional Readings)
February 5, 2015
I'd purchased 7 of these in paperback form, with the intention of creating gift bags to hand out and as it turned out I became one recipient. I'd recently lost my mom, who lived with my husband and I, and immediately after her loss my husband had serious medical issues and was hospitalized. It was touch and go and for awhile there was a fear I'd lose him also. I was in such turmoil it was difficult for me to accept the expressions of love and concern others shared. I felt my world was crashing around me, and feelings of oppression were weighing heavy on my heart. Then I picked up a copy of Strengthen My Spirit to bring it in to my husband so he would be comforted. We started reading it together in his hospital room and I suddenly found myself being greatly ministered to as well. The feelings of oppression left and a sense of renewed hope took their place. God had used that wonderful little book to minister to my own need. My husband recovered with prayers from my friends and family. The doctors consider it a miracle of sorts.... and so do I... on all counts.
