If you or anyone you know have a debilitating condition (cancer, disability, lupus, ms, etc.), PLEASE get this book to them right away! The emotions that no one else understands will be mirrored back to them in a way that will challenge them to depend on God.

I've never heard a more realistic picture of suffering. This little book has had a profound influence on my life. Amy spoke encouraging words to me and expressed my deepest feelings in such a poetic way.

Amy Carmichael, a missionary to young girls in India, suffered a debilitating injury/ illness that confined her to bed. This book grew out of the pain, restless nights, struggles, and frustrations that ensued. She compiled the devotionals (written for the staff and children in her orphanage), correspondence, musings, and journal entries, and poems from that thorny period in the hopes that God would use them to minister to others in similar situations. In other words, she prayed that a rose-- this book-- would grow from the briar patch of her life.

As she experiences the ups and downs of attitude, faith, and energy, honest and poignant observations about the disheartening affects of pain are mixed with metaphors and excerpts of hymns that brightened her day. Each 1-2 page section can be read in any order depending on your current physical and mental state.

This is strong medicine-- meant to be taken in small doses. You will be touched.

I have been quite ill for several years, and have read many many christian books about illness, etc. Nothing, however, has touched my heart and encouraged my faithfulness like this little book. I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone who is physically or emotionally struggling.

Some years ago this book was recommended to me and I have found it very helpful for sharing with people who are in the midst of physical suffering. As the author observed too often materials written for the sick are by those who are well. Perspective can be lacking in such writing. However, Amy Carmichael does not dwell on herself to gain perspective on suffering. However, her experience of a protracted illness and confinement give authenticity to what she shares about suffering and God's ability to meet the sufferer and give comfort and strength.

A wonderful resource to refer to many times and for many years to come. Priceless and timeless! It leads you to The Source of blessing through infirmity and pain. A real treasure! Both my husband and myself have been sweetly reminded of God's faithfulness and mercy through this little book, as we struggle with chronic illness and pain. Hope to order more of these books soon and give to many who we know are suffering.

I love Amy's Carmichael's laugh and testimony. Her life was such a beautiful life lived for Jesus and she radiated His love in everything she did. This book of hers was especially encouraging to me because Amy wrote it during a season of sickness. She spent many years homebound and bed - ridden and I have spent the last year and a half homebound due to serious health problems. The Lord has put this lovely book in front of me right when I needed it. It is so encouraging to me and I feel like I relate to her circumstances so much. I highly recommend reading this and adding this to your daily devotional time. You will not be disappointed.

I have just about all of Amy Carmichael's books, and now I'm trying to get as many in e-book format as possible. Rose From Brier, and book written from an "ill" person to "ill" people, has always been one of my favorite books of Amy's for almost 50 years now!

This is a book for anyone suffering from a long term illness, and homebound. It relays the disappointments we suffer and limitations we are on and how they affect our everyday living, and ways to handle all the frustrations and
And anger issues we go through. I recommend it highly .

I love Amy's not-sugar-sweet take on being ill as a Christian. I was in tears so many times reading this book. One thing that stood out to me near the beginning were her comments on a letter from a friend who mentioned, far too cheerfully, her "enforced rest". Amy challenges the idea that pain could be "restful" in any way. She talks about true rest being the rest that comes after a fulfilling activity.

Amy balances really well the pain and anxiety of being ill or injured for a long period with continuing to focus on the goodness of God and our place, as believers, to trust Him.
