Imploding relationships, incapacitating losses, injurious personal mistakes, or spiritual failures—whatever the issue, the wounds are the same.
Whether it’s a lapse in judgment by Bathsheba or the moral failure of the women’s ministry leader in your local church; the spiritual insensitivity of Martha or the compulsive obsessions of your church’s care circle chairwoman; the terror of an abandoned single mother like Hagar or the struggling single mother in your prayer group—the time and circumstances are different, but the wounds are equally deep and spiritually devastating.
Dena Dyer and Tina Samples get it. They have their own stories of pain before healing—along with similar experiences of their families and friends. Offering more than pat affirmations or vicarious shoulders to cry on, Dena and Tina delve deep into the shared emotions and injuries that women of all ages have in common—and move readers toward the recovery and healing that only God can provide.
No matter what hurts you’ve experienced, Wounded Women of the Bible proves that God understands and that healing is not only His intention but His delight!
When looking at various women throughout the Bible you can in turn use it to search your own situation. Many women from God’s word endured much hurt, pain, heart break, disappointments, and many other struggles that women today deal with. Those woman who trusted in God had hope, strength, and peace in the storm.
Dena Dyer and Tina Samples want to give hope to other hurting women. They do this by telling how they overcame difficulty in their lives and how to inspire others to draw close to God in all situations.
This book would be a good resource for someone who needs to know that they are not alone. Others have lived in dire situations also. Not only is God faithful but He cares about what is going on in our lives. He shows us that in His word many women endured much but, those who called out to God He is there.
