Please visit my blog for my review of this Devotional Book:

As usual, comments are welcome!
This daily devotional guide is all about God's love. Some of the topics include a letter to God, a reminder that we are not alone,faith and that God is on our side. This is the perfect length to allow you to spend a few moments with God.
A handy book that can be opened anywhere and God will be with you! The author has a very deep faith to share with her reader and her relationship with God. The best line for me - "we just need to be".
Very inspiring into God's promises to us! A great read!!!!

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other ...more
I have to be honest with this review. I am struggling with the number of stars to assign. I first wanted to give 2 stars, but to be fair, I settled on 3 because of the quality of writing and the merits of what is contained in this book, but honestly, 3 is a stretch for me. I had some issues with this book, which I'll attempt to explain, and give more details on why I didn't give a higher rating below.

One thing which concerned me, was that there is very little scripture contained in this book. Mo

First I want to say thank you to the Author for the copy and Goodreads for making it happen. I was surprised that I won this copy because my yahoo account is not working anymore so I didn't know anything about it, but then, a mail man came today and gave me this. I don't know if this is God's way of saying, 'Everything will be alright, I'm always here for you, I love you', but Thank God for the book. My favorite part of this book is 'God is my strength', it hit close to home for me. This is the ...more

Good book with some reservations

This book has some good points. There are points that I personally don't agree with, but overall it's a good read.

The Nature of God

One of my biggest struggles with Christianity is feeling that God is upset with me.

When I first became a Christian, I didn’t understand God at all, so naturally my faith was very limited. All I knew was that I wanted to be in a relationship with him. I did my best to not give up, and I took very small steps to grow closer to him. Eventually, over many months, he showed me he loved me, and taught me to love myself.

In my current relationship with God, when something goes wrong, I can become confused and upset. I can feel he led me somewhere only for me to get hurt, or I can be confused by the messages I feel he’s giving me. But the intense pain I feel during this time is partly because I feel by doubting God, I’m causing a huge rift that even he can’t repair. I feel if I don’t understand God perfectly, he loves me less, and is no longer protecting me.

But this isn’t true. God loves each of us more than we could possibly know, and a loving father would never be angry with us for having doubts. In those initial months of being a Christian, when we didn’t understand him at all, was God mad at us? Did he expect us to completely understand him, and become angry with us for being hurt and troubled? Of course not.

Just because our relationship with God has become more mature, it doesn’t mean we aren’t going to doubt, and God understands this. He still loves and protects us, and will be right by our side while we work through our conflict with him. He hears our every prayer. We feel ashamed for doubting him and for being ungrateful, but God knows our nature. He’ll never look away from us, and is always at work in our lives, even when we can’t see it. God loves us. There’s nothing a human could do to change the nature of God.”
“Protecting Me It’s God. It’s God who’s protecting me. He knows what he’s doing! It’s God himself. He doesn’t do things badly. He doesn’t “drop the ball.” He doesn’t do things less because I’m a “bad Christian” or I don’t believe. He is in control. If I were out on the street, he’d be with me. He’d protect me. It’s God. He doesn’t love me less or care for me less because I make mistakes. He has a plan and I’m part of it, and he doesn’t look away or become less active. He loves me just as much as he loves anyone else. He loves me. So trust him. I love him. He’s perfect.” 0 likes
