Lived up to headline: wisdom each day

This is a really cool devotional. Peterson pulls nuggets from all of his published texts to deliver a tight and salient series of God-honoring insights. This is not a prayer guide not is it a deep dive on any given subject. I found it useful as a reminder of God's truths presented in such a way as to make them fresh, compelling and contemplative.

Another excellent devotional. The downside to having started this and Lewis' book at the same time this time last year is that I now have to find new morning reading material.

“The basic conviction of a Christian is that God intends good for us and that he will get his way in us. He does not treat us according to our deserts, but according to his plan. He is not a police officer on patrol, watching over the universe, ready to club us if we get out of hand or put us in jail if we get obstreperous. He is a potter working with the clay of our lives, forming and reforming until, finally, he has shaped a redeemed life, a vessel fit for a kingdom. A LONG OBEDIENCE” 2 likes
“I don’t know one thing about the future. I don’t know what the next hour will hold. There may be sickness, accident, personal or world catastrophe. Before this day is over I may have to deal with death, pain, loss, rejection. I don’t know what the future holds for me, for those I love, for my nation, for this world. Still, despite my ignorance and surrounded by tinny optimists and cowardly pessimists, I say that God will accomplish his will, and I cheerfully persist in living in the hope that nothing will separate me from Christ’s love.” 1 likes
