An inspiration indeed,
This review is from: Joni: An Unforgettable Story (Paperback)
You know, sometimes we wonder if God is actually listening to our requests. We pray that He takes away our pain and suffering and we are taught that He heals the sick if only we ask for it and pray in faith.
This is the story of a young woman who prayed for the healing of a terrible injury after a tragic accident had disastrous consequences. God didn't heal her, but He had a bigger plan, one the human eye and mind could not see. Through this terrible tragedy, Joni triumphed over devastating odds and touched so many lives across the world with the healing message of Christ!
It seems incredible. A single moment one day led to a tragic accident which changed Joni's life forever. And yet, despite the devastating consequences, Joni showed how an active and promising life shattered, and all the struggles that ensued, can be transformed into accepting disability and discovering the meaning of life. She also shows how God reveals his love and she testifies to faith's triumph over hardship and suffering.
As Joni's story demonstrates, God's greatness, power and mercy are always at work in all those who fully give their hearts and lives to Him. No matter what the circumstances God can overcome, build up and show others His awesomeness and magnitude.
It is wonderful to read of God's healing miracles where folk are healed of life-long physical illness, but it is equally wonderful to read of God's triumphs when physical healing does not occur.
