- Forward by A Lewis Patterson, Jr.
Is your heart heavy with worry, hurt, sorrow or fear? Do you feel all alone with an aching heart? Have you asked yourself over and again, "Why me? Why do these burdens always fall on me?" Jesus said:
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:1-3)
A Cure for a Troubled Heart will take you on a simplistic and practical journey to the deepest meaning of these words—a journey that will lead you to experience God's unconditional love and the fullness of joy and peace that Christ promised. If your heart is weighed down by life, then Cure for a Troubled Heart will lighten your load, lift your head and let you see your help, which comes from the Lord.
