Rest Ministries inspirational devotions are daily christian devotions that been going out to thousands of people with chronic illness or pain each day since the late 1990s, all written by those walking alongside you living with chronic illness.

They provide refreshment, reminders of God’s faithfulness even in the most lonely moments, and maybe even a few giggles, for your illness journey.

“Each day the daily devotional is like salve to my soul. I have been struggling in the last month with depression due to chronic illness–bipolar illness. I recently signed up to receive your daily devotionals and each day I look forward to the uplifting feeling they bring.” T.F.

These devotionals will make you smile, sometimes shed a tear, but they will always be written by someone who understands living with daily chronic pain and illness and they will always direct you back to what we put our true hope in, our Savior.


I have been receiving Rest Ministries devotionals for about three months-ever since I turned to the internet to find someone who would understand. I needed to hear someone say “it’s okay to be angry at your limitations, and it’s okay to hurt, but there is a place to look for help. That place is God’s Word!” The devotionals from you are just what the many friends and family had ordered. Through the weeks that have followed, I have been nourished and encouraged by the daily thoughts, and have begun to pass them on to others who are enduring pain. I have been in touch with some of the authors, and have been encouraged by their words. That is what I wanted to say, and I want to thank you for all that you have meant to me and the ways you have encouraged me. -Ruth F.
