Testimony like this found in this book strengthens our faith in a God who is madly in pursuit of your heart.
She takes us through everything that has happened to her since she had that first issue during the birth of her second son. She had warning signs before that, but like so many of us, she explained them away. She was a marathon runner and in great shape so heart trouble never really entered her mind.
I could relate so much to so many of her feelings as it transpired me back to my own emergency surgery and all that transpired for a year after that. It's something that doesn't let you go and I can only imagine how it has affected her as she lives with this diagnosis day after day.
However, this is not a book about Julie's physical heart as much as it is about her spiritual heart and how she trusts God with everything that has happened and will happen. She praises Him, not only despite her illness, but because of it.
She shares from her journals and offers up prayers - she writes specifically to her sons throughout this book and it's so sweet, personal and amazing. Please do watch the video I have linked under her biography as it will give you a deeper glimpse into her heart and how much she loves the Lord. I love what she says in the video, "I had a friend tell me once that I have a different type of worship to offer up to Him. So despite the circumstances we've been in, He's teaching me how to worship Him and I think it's kind of special that He's entrusted this suffering to me. To worship Him in a way I had never worshipped Him before." That's her desire and that's her desire for us. To worship the Lord in any and all circumstances.
I love this book! I highlighted it extensively and I know that there are parts that I will revisit time and again as I need that encouragement on a tough day. I highly recommend this book to everyone and I hope you'll get a copy and read it. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
*I received this book in exchange for my honest review by B & H/Lifeway Publishers
For all intents and purposes Julie's life had been relatively normal. She married the love of her life, she had a very fulfilling career, and they had a darling boy and were soon expecting a second one. Then out of left field an unknown heart condition appears.
I will admit that for the first half of this book I was in desperate need of Kleenex. Julie's story is gut-wrenching. All of those mommy fears came true. Second opinions didn't give different answers. Begging and pleading to God didn't change the circumstances. But what slowly began to emerge was beautiful. In the midst of such brokenness, healing was found. Her heart was still broken but her soul had found rest.
Julie's journey is one that we are all on. We may not have a life-threatening physical condition, but we all have broken hearts that need healing. I enjoyed Julie's willingness to let us look in on her private struggle. She allows herself to be vulnerable in order that you and I will see how Jesus broke through all the changes and became the unmovable and unchanging force in her life. You can't help but be inspired by her words and encouraged to take similar actions in your own life.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
