Come all men, women and teens alike and Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7(NRSV)! In everyday trials and tribulations we are all this at some point of our lives. So enter in with the author, Gus Keiser as he takes us on the same spiritual journey that he took for 3 years. The outcome of his alone time being in Gods presence is this one year devotional of scripture, reflection and prayer taken from his daily email journal that was shared with family and friends. But you will find that it is more than just an ordinary devotional as the author takes you on an emotional journey that will have you reaching in and looking at your own life. Youll see by the reading of this book that it was time well spent by the author and it will be for the reader too. Read a page a day in your own alone time and ask the Lord to speak to you. The scriptures are taken from the New Revised Standard, the NIV, or the Message versions of the Bible. And this reviewer personally likes the added bonus of the section in the back of the book covering certain seasonal times such as New Years, Christmas, Easter, Epiphany, Valentines Day and even St. Patricks Day. The author does an amazing job of capturing the very essence of the scripture verse in applying it to todays life. But its not preachy as a problem with most daily devotional books, its the authors own reflections that will teach and inspire. Its more like being allowed to read someones personal well written journal. So enter in as I feel the author says it best in his invitation in the preface of the book And now, I invite you to be still and listen for the voice of God. This time apart may just change your life. I expect it will. Or as it states on the back of the book Life is a journey. So sit back, and be still and spend sometime alone with God and this devotional -----youll be glad you did!
