Reflections For Our Highs and Lows

So often it’s hard to know how to help friends who are having mental health problems. Marja Bergen’s book offers a way. Reflections for our Highs and Lows, richly illustrated with colour photographs, makes an ideal gift. The twenty-eight devotionals are specifically written for those who are struggling. Marja brings an understanding to her writing that comes from having lived with bipolar disorder since 1965.

In the book Marja reflects on Bible verses, using stories and experiences from her own life and other people’s lives. Readers can see God’s Word come alive and learn to survive and thrive as they put their trust in God. Marja’s passion is to comfort, encourage, and inspire as she shares her reflections.
Excerpt from the story Come and Have Breakfast:

“I think of how it might be for me, after suffering a long dark night of the soul, feeling lost and alone, distant from God. I think of how I might feel in the early morning light, arriving on shore and having Jesus greet me with “come and have breakfast.” The relief, the comfort, the peace, like the embrace of a compassionate friend. Yes, this picture speaks to me. Can you see how the same Jesus who met the disciples on shore two thousand years ago is ready to meet you on your shore today?”
