The meditations in "Thru Trials to Peace" deal with the ways in which God interacts with His people, and purposefully uses them to further His kingdom work even when they are limited by chronic diseases or disabilities. Rae Fraser wrote the meditations during her 26 year struggle with Parkinson's Disease and the associated painful muscle cramps (a rare drug side-effect). Each meditation is based on insights Rae received from God's Word as she lived her way through the difficult, frustrating, and often humbling situations that the disease involved.
In this book hard questions are not avoided, and neither is the "tough love" call to recognize that as Christians we are in God's army, and must obey His commands no matter what situation we are in. At the same time, the meditations overflow with God's love and His promises to be with His hurting people, holding them in His hands at all times. They reflect Rae's own growing inner joy and eternal certainty as she learns to allow Christ's Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to work through her.
