This little devotional is finally in my posession! I have looked everywhere for it and finally found it! It has been a true blessing as previous reviewers have stated. I bought a few to give away as gifts with the one I purchased and everyone has been quite pleased and blessed with the same. When I get a chance, I will purchase a few more for more gift giving. Would like to add that this devotional is GREAT for any age group as I gave one to my 15 year old daughter - she loved it and lent it out to a friend of hers, same age.
I had the privilege (something I do not say often) to read and review "His Princess: Love Letters from Your King" By: Sheri Rose Shepherd and wow, I cannot say enough good things about this book. The messages are powerful, heartfelt, affirming words of God that sink deep into your soul and affirm the gracious love of our Father for us. Page after wonderful page you are reminded on Gods unfailing love for you. When I first received this book I planned to read through it like any other book and write a simple review. After the first 3 pages I knew this was not going to happen. God used this book to reaffirm His love for me and draw me closer to Him in a powerful and amazing way. I found myself highlighting truths as they applied to my life, my journey, fears and insecurities. When I was done my spirit felt renewed and transformed. Simply amazing how Gods word does transform my spirit and shakes me awake time and again. At the end of the book I took all that I underlined that touched my life and wrote my own personal letter from God to me.
Here is just a small excerpt of what you will find in this wonderful book. This is my personal combination of what reached out to me from several different stories:
"I see you when you are in the garden of grief. I hear your cry for help in the dark hours of the night. Don't ever doubt that I am with you and that I long to take you to a place of comfort, peace and victory. Give to me the crushing weight of you circumstances, and come to Me in prayer. Don't imitate those of the world who care nothing for your soul. Give yourself to Me, and I will give you the love you are looking for. Please, my princess, let go of your guilt and forgive yourself and those who have hurt you. Once you have confessed your sins to Me, I cast it into the sea of My forgetfulness-never to see or remember it again. So let go and live a free and full life, My precious one. I see you when no one else does. I see you meet others needs when no one is looking. I know when you give generously when there is no spotlight. I know you need to be appreciated for who you are and all that you do. But don't give up. I cannot wait to celebrate in heaven all that you have done to further My kingdom. I am so pleased with your dedication and good works. "
I could go on, but why not just go out and buy the book for yourself! Want a sneak peak before committing? Just click on the link and read chapter one and fall in love for yourself with this amazing book. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. The opinion are my own."
I am buying and giving this book away. It is a must have for any woman. I am amazed at the author's insight and sensitivity. It was so "on point" for me and many of the women I deal with. The scripture is what makes it a "jewel". Without it, the book would have made you feel good but with scripture, it makes it true. I am already planning the same give away with her other book.
