Pain is inevitable. It manifests physically, emotionally, relationally, or spiritually. It follows tragic accidents, great loss, sudden betrayal, or unexpected change. Often pain is temporary. But what do you do when it isn't? When it won't go away, healing does not come, and grief and hurt settle in to stay?
Drawing on her own experience of chronic pain and her years as a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist, Dr. Michelle Bengtson provides a countercultural perspective on pain. Offering hope without any false promises or empty platitudes, Dr. Bengtson unwraps the complex emotional aspects of dealing with pain. She gives you permission to question God, helps you identify the lies you've believed about your pain, and reorients your perception based on the truth of God's Word. Each chapter ends with a recommended playlist, reflection questions, and a prayer.
Your pain may not change, but your experience with it can.
