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!

I absolutely love getting Daily Devotions from Rest Ministries. I found them through "But You Don't Look Sick" one day during the annual Invisible Disabilities Conference on Facebook. I have been getting them ever since. Sometimes I get behind in my reading, but I never delete them. I save them until I have time to read them all! I do try every day to read them though, because it really is like having a giant gulp of devotion, along with your cup of coffee, to start your day! Lisa Copen started it all, and now has guest writers that are helping her keeping the writing going. All are people with chronic pain and illness. So they know exactly what we are going through. I love that. It's hard to understand someone with pain and illness unless you, yourself, have been there. The writing is excellent, Christian, Bible based and right on. I never come away empty. I always come away filled with joy. There are great people, great writers here. I say you should go check it out yourself, and while you are there, check out the Sunroom and the whole site. There are some great books too! ;0) RestMinistries.com

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!

Rest Ministries, chronic illness devotionals have been such a blessing to me. I have CFS/ME and FM. Many
times the writer's little stories help me feel not so alone, like the writer truly knows how we feel because they
are living with the same pain,or problems as the rest of us. I so look forward to reading them each day. I
like to share them with my friends and print out the ones that touch my heart to have to read again. These
wonderful messages have meant so much to me. I also love Lisa Copen's great books on living with chronic
illness. Unlike some books,these really hit the mark, because the writer lives with chronic illness herself and
relates so well to everything we go through. It is like Lisa and the writers of the daily devotionals are friends,
walking along with us on this journey of faith and chronic illness. I feel so blessed to have found a home here.

With a chronic illness, one can at times feel useless, isolated, forgotten, hopeless, like you're "missing the party" that everyone else is enjoying.

You know there's still that vital, fun-loving, passionate, unique spark of individuality in there, but sometimes you feel it gets covered over by the reality of your illness. You don't want to be a drag, but this thing is here for the long haul.

Enter Rest Ministries Devotionals. A breath of fresh air...honest and real...hopeful, but never "preachy"...insightful...giving you a smile cause you've felt that, thought that, done that too...you're not alone...others "get it"...you nod in understanding...there's permission to be where you're at...you feel lighter, encouraged...even the joy of being reminded, your life has meaning and purpose, and it is definitely worth the living!!

Can you tell I highly recommend these??!!

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.
