ABOUT THIS BOOK


40 short devotions on the different aspects of God’s love in hard times

Catherine Campbell’s experience as a nurse and as the mother of two girls who both inherited a rare genetic condition that required constant care until their deaths at ages 10 and 13 has given her a unique insight into suffering. As an inspirational speaker, she frequently encounters people with tragic stories. And yet she believes that God is Lord and that in both good times and bad, He is always good.

Isaiah 40:31 says, that “those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.” Campbell comments:

How often have you wakened in the morning knowing that the problem, or the pain, or the unpaid bill has not disappeared? We worry and fret ourselves into exhaustion. Yet God has promised us endurance.

The great eagle cannot reach the heights merely by its own strength. As it spreads its impressive wings the bird allows the wind to carry it to places no other bird can go. This kind of flying appears effortless because the eagle trusts in a power bigger than itself . . . the wind!

In this unique devotional, Catherine examines different aspects of God’s love for those times when life gets hard. Perfect for anyone needing encouragement in difficult times, Rainbows for Rainy Days gently shows readers how to turn pain over to Him.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Rainbows for Rainy Days is an awesome little devotional written for you when you find yourself going through those difficult times that get us down. Each of the forty devotions in this book deal with all kinds of situations, with one that is sure do help you at one time or another. I found the devotions simple and easy to read, yet powerfully encouraging and helpful. Each one is short, with beautiful peaceful and calming pictures throughout the book.

We all have rainy days in our lives, some more difficult than others, therefore every one of us can benefit from Catherine Campbell’s book Rainbows for Rainy Day. For me, each devotion had a special message for me because of the difficult situations our family has been facing. I found encouragement in verses like Proverbs 3:5 & 6 that says to “Trust in the Lord with all our hearts;” Exodus 33:14 that says, “My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest;” and Luke 1:37 which says “For nothing is impossible with God.” And this is just a taste of what this book is about.

I love everything about this book! The book is full of truths and promises from God’s Word that I can always go to for encouragement. And the beauty of the book is breathtaking. The cover is strikingly beautiful, the colors are calming and peaceful, and the pictures inside will have you sitting and taking them in for a long time. I really want to encourage you to purchase a copy of this wonderful devotional for yourself. You will not be disappointed, I assure you. And it makes a beautiful book for your coffee table, which is just where mine is!
