Blessings for the Evening: Finding Peace in God's Presence
When I first received it, the cover was appealing and I couldn't wait to see what was between the covers.
I love that there is a bible verse, and then a short one page reflection that just leaves you with a peaceful feeling. I thought the pictures on the pages were relaxing and peaceful as well. What a well planned out book that would be a great gift for any person that you love! This book is a wonderful addition to my devotional/reflection books. I don't always have time to spend a lot of time in devotions at the end of the day, especially at the end of a busy day. This book was just the key - it was brief, relaxing, and the message on the pages really were great reminder of the promises of God.
I love that at the end of most pages it reminds you to "sleep well."
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for my honest opinion. The opinions shared in this review are soley my responsibility.

A Beautifully Written Book
"Blessings for the Evening" by Susie Larson, was written because of the author's own bouts w/nighttime worries. In this refreshing devotional book, she gives a reassuring promise from God's Word on one page and then on the opposite side, she speaks blessings over you and tells you to 'sleep well'. On each and every page are some of the most beautifully displayed pictures of nature behind each promise and blessing. The photography is absolutely breathtaking!
This would make a wonderful nighttime devotional to read before bedtime each night or would make a very nice gift for someone special. What a sweet book! I highly recommend it!
Thanks to Bethany House for allowing me to review it free of charge!

What a comforting book to read before going to bed. Once I opened this book it was difficult to put down as I found the words to be so uplifting and encouraging. It definitely helped to put my mind at ease as I read about GodÃ¢ÂÂs promises and was reminded of His love for me. I could feel the worries of the day become a distant memory. I also enjoyed the beautiful pictures that were displayed in the background. This book is truly a blessing to me and I think it will be a blessing to many others.
*Thank you to Bethany House for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

even though title is blessings for the evening I have to say I think it can be used at any time of the day. Great handy little book to have at your finger tips or at your night stand. I love how it has a scripture and then a prayer with it. Also the pictures they fit each scripture and prayer perfectly.
This is my favorite one Equipped for victory
Excerpt " no weapon forged against you will prevail. and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord. and this is their vindication from me, declares the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 niv ( speak this over yourself) I am loved, called and chosen. I am rich in every way and generous on every occasion. I'm anointed, appointed, equipped and ebabled by the power of God that works mightily within me! No weapon formed against me will prosper and no enemy scheme against me will succeed.
I live breathe and serve powerfully under the shelter of the most high God Amen.
I recommend this to all and think it is a great gif
