There is great wisdom and revelation here. For instance, she gives this word of the Lord, "How can I give you healing for your body whilst there is anxiety in thy mind? So long as there is dis-ease in thy thoughts, there shall be disease in thy body. Ye have need of many things, but one thing in particular ye must develop for thine own preservation, and that is an absolute confidence in My loving care."

Have had this book since the early '70s as a baby Christian. Countless times I have done the "lucky dip" just to get a Word of comfort or encouragement from God. He never dissapointed me using this little tool to get my attention. I have learned that His Word is my tool these days, but in the beginning, this little book was truly a God send for me. Enjoy.
This book is like sitting down with a warm fleece blanket on your couch with a cup of your favorite tea while listening to The Lord speak to you...it's like a love letter from God. The words on the page will touch you when and where you need it most. "He will affirm you as He fills up the lonely places with joy and gladness..."
This little devotion book was given to me by a very special friend. The sentiment and the message is powerful. It was like reading pages from a journal from the Father to me! Always encouraging and thought provoking I would recommend this to anyone to use during their quiet times alone with God.
Excellent book of devotionals which will definitely minister to every need in your life. Read this book last year, now I have picked it back up to go through again. This pocket sized book is now a part of the items that I carry in my purse.
mostly based on scripture, but written as letters from God. I was surprised by how much of an impact these little daily devotions had on me. I think this will become a book I return to and re-read often. Especially in times of trial or discouragement. This was a good way to remind myself of the closeness of my God, both His love for and His expectations of me. Not all easy to hear stuff, too--sometimes they were quite challenging, and often they were eye-opening. I would recommend this book whol...more
This book was given to me about 6 years ago, and I finally just finished it. It is broken into short essays, so it is the type of book that is meant to be read a few pages at a time. Strictly for the Christian reader or at least a reader who is interested in and open to learning more about Christianity. (It is suitable for all Christian denominations.) The essays are written as if God is speaking to you directly--which seems kind of presumptuous to put words in God's mouth, but somehow it works....more
This book, given to me by a friend at church, has come highly recommended by my mom, who read the entire thing while staying with me after my surgery (over a year ago). I read the book a devotional or two at a time, trying to really savor it. The author's voice and tone are strikingly original. She writes as God speaking to a believer. The devotionals are inspiring, challenging, and encouraging. This is a book to be read over and over again throughout a lifetime.
Come away my beloved was a gift from a friend back in 2006. Out of all the books that I have owned, this one book manages to make it with me every time I move while all others are donated to charity or just left behind. Although not devoutly religious, I still thumb through it on occasion & can find comfort in it's pages during times of turmoil and stress. Pgs 143 & 152 are favorites.
I can't even begin to describe how well this little book is written. This is a great devotional that can be put into any purse or bag and taken with you. I have learned SO much for this book. I have journals of notes and thoughts. It will bring you a step closer to the Lord if you really open your heart and take it all in!
