Review: Rush of Heaven by:Ema McKinley w/Cheryl Ricker
About the Book:
Ema, give me your hand. These were the words Jesus spoke to Ema on Christmas Eve--the night He straightened her crooked foot, hand, neck, and spine, and restored her mobility.
Easter weekend, eighteen years earlier, an ordinary workday turned into a nightmare when Ema McKinley passed out and was left hanging upside down in the storage room.
Rather than improving, Ema s body became progressively bent and disfigured. Doctors diagnosed Ema with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), an extremely painful trauma-induced disease which led to Ema s hand and foot deformities, painful sores, insomnia, gastrological distress, curvature of the neck and spine, heart and lung failure, and permanent confinement to a wheelchair.
Once an athletic, powerhouse woman with multiple jobs and volunteer positions, Ema became a modern-day Job who lost everything except her faith and desire to trust God more fully. Ema wrestled with pain, anger, and unforgiveness, but now takes the reader on a healing miracle encounter of Biblical proportions.
Rush of Heaven will ignite readers passion for Jesus and help them walk hand-in-hand with Him through life s darkness. It will open hearts to embrace the impossible.
Jesus gave me this miracle for you too! Ema McKinley"
After a terrible injury while at work, Ema McKinley found herself writhing in pain and confined to a wheelchair. Doctors had tried everything, from physical therapy to nerve stimulators, they had still found no way to help her. It was sad to read that she had to sit back and let her life pass her by, all the while in shear agony. As each day progressed and she went through all sorts of trials brought on by this accident, she prayed for God to sustain her through it all. God soon answered her prayers by performing a HUGE miracle and completely abnormal by human standards.
The author manages to tell us her story through the raw human emotion that caused her great stress and unbelievable amounts of pain. She tells us of what a normal day would be like for her and all these scenes were taken in from a wheelchair view. God takes us as broken vessels and He creates something extraordinary. We ourselves have trouble believing that our Father would love us enough to perform such miracles, but He does it anyway to show a lost and dying world who they can lean on in times of trouble. Rush of Heaven is about a woman that God used to transform those lives around her and to prove He is very much real! If you would like to learn more, you can at this link.
