Living with chronic pain is a daily challenge, even for those who have endured illness for years. This daily nourishment from scripture and the writers of Rest Ministries, who also live with chronic illness or pain, is sure to refresh your spirit.

Kindle blogs are fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you're not wirelessly connected. And unlike RSS readers which often only provide headlines, blogs on Kindle give you full text content and images, and are updated wirelessly throughout the day.

Among the many helpful tools that reside at Rest Ministries, my favorite is the Devotion section. People with a chronic medical condition feel set apart from the rest of the population. The chronically ill may use a cane, crutch or wheelchair - or they may not have any outward sign of their illness. Being afraid to be a burden on others, having to spend hundreds of dollars on medications, feeling too bad to attend family or religious functions, losing job or having to downsize to a much lower-paying job - all of these can make the sick person feel depressed and worthless.

The Devotions at Rest Ministries are based on Scripture and intended to make chronically ill persons believe in themselves again. They tell a story of how human frailty can be used by God to become spiritual strength. Hope, encouragement, and a realization of blessings owned combine to give the ill person just what he or she needs to make it through the challenges of that day. These devotions are truly the best for the blest!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the right words March 9, 2011
By Kara
These devotionals are so special because they're written by and for people w/ chronic illness and/or pain. They so often say just the right thing I'm needing that day for encouragement. It really helps to know that there other people out there who are coping w/ so many of the same things, even when we don't have the same illness.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Blessing March 8, 2011
By Sallie
Chronic Illness Daily Devotionals are such a blessing. I live with fibromyalgia and I seem to get the right words to pick me up from this daily devotional. It always is a fresh word bringing me life in days that sometimes seem so hard. This is worth your time if you live with chronic pain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouragement from Someone Who Understands March 8, 2011
Melissa said it so well. Sometimes reading the posted devotional is the highlight of my day. A few I read and re-read. I've talked to people who keep certain ones on file for later use.

One of the great things about these pieces of writing is that the writers are usually very open about their struggles and this helps me not to feel so alone. That by itself is uplifting, confidence building.

Although verses of the Bible are referred to, these are not intended to be Bible studies. They are words expressing the writer's thoughts and feelings, with comfort and/or a solution, practical or spiritual. Here you will NOT find words minimizing your pain and suffering, or simple answers that just make you feel worse.

When you have read the particular devotional, you can make a comment about it, which is also posted. Often the comments are as inspiring as the article itself. And, many of the writings have a way in which you can contact them directly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great blog September 19, 2011
By stacto
I have found this Kindle blog most helpful since reading it since two weeks ago. I have osteoarthritis problems and have had replacement joints. I also have sleep apnea and was diagnosed beginning March with heart failure.
I was encouraged reading Psalm 73:26 to see God knows about heart failure, for it says 'My flesh and my HEART MAY FAIL but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever" - it lifted the anxiety I was feeling about my condition
Bless you for all the contributions - Stuart Cato UK

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh how precious a few words can be... March 31, 2011
I have been getting these devotionals in my email for many years now. Sometimes I read them and the words touch me in such away it just makes my day. All of the writers suffer from chronic illness in some form or another, so they understand what the reader is going through personally. This in turn makes their words seem like a friend's advice or even just a friend's hug. I highly recommend getting these devotionals sent to you daily if you need that little bit of inspiration to get through the day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just knowing there is someone else like me... September 30, 2013
I receive the Rest Ministries daily devotional each morning, and they are such a blessing. When you have chronic pain, there are so many aspects of the illness that healthy people don't understand, and to know that someone out there is suffering as I do gives me great peace and encouragement. The perspectives on scripture are comforting, while sometimes convicting me of my self pity and "poor me" attitude that can sometimes overwhelm those with chronic pain. I look forward to my email each morning and am blessed each day by it's content. Keep up the GREAT work! There is a place for you in God's kingdom!

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging and inspiring October 13, 2011
I am blessed with good health but am a caregiver for my husband who has many health problems. These devotionals help me to be more compassionate and understanding of his problems and more thankful to God for all He has provided.
