Presence matters. If you don’t believe this, you will by the end of the book, The Power of Presence.
Neil Anderson’s wife was diagnosed with dementia & Neil did not have the answers for her or himself. But he did have time & a heart for his wife, which blossomed from a heart for the Lord.
Neil’s conviction led him to invest in his wife by caring for her with his presence while she slowly faded away. In this experience, he experienced the presence of the Lord & the comforting power of the Holy Spirit.
This book is a story of that experience & it ripples with implications on prayer, meditation & listening to God in the lonely & still times of life when it seems that all hope is lost.
This story is encouraging & powerfully convicting because we all experience loneliness, doubt, confusion, and trials. But God keeps His promise that He will not forsake us & His faithfulness was made clear to the Anderson’s & it can be to you as well.
I received this book free from Kregel Publications as part of their Academic & Ministry Blog Review Service. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
