The book "Jesus Today" by Sarah Young (Also author of the very touching devotional "Jesus Calling"), who has Lyme Disease
(The quotes I use were taken from the article at the bottom of this post)
Sarah Young, the author of the popular devotional "Jesus Calling" that has touched so many lives, has been struggling with Lyme Disease for over 3 years and is still battling it. She lives in Australia but this article says, "she spent six months in the U.S. in 2009 getting 'intensive, expensive treatment' without seeing significant improvement". She has a new book out called "Jesus Today" that was written during her hardest times with her illness. '“I am convinced that if I had been healthier I would not have been able to write this book,' Young says of her latest offering. 'It chronicles my journey from discouragement to hope.'" I didn't know that she had Lyme Disease, or was even sick, but it makes me respect her even more. She has allowed God to use her and what she's going through to glorify Him and hasn't let her illness stop her! Did any of you know that she has Lyme Disease, or that she was even sick?? Have any of you read her new book "Jesus today" ? I can't wait to read it!! I'm so thankful for people like Sarah who allow God to use them.
