Priscilla Shirer delivers a masterful grasp of Scripture and our need to daily feast on the words of life. She provides gems to ponder that can shift our thinking and create life change. Daily entries are brief yet give points to ponder throughout the day. There is plenty of room to write your own thoughts with a few additional verses for further reading on the topic. These devotional entries are deeper and more insightful than most.
I tend to like in depth Bible study so I don't do many daily devotional type of books. But I have done several of Priscilla's Bible studies and decided that I'd give this one a try. So glad that I did. I know it's cliche to say that I was hooked from the beginning, but I was. The very first daily devotion is still resonating with me weeks later.
The set-up of the book is simple. There are ninety different devotions that start with a small portion of scripture and then follow with thoughts by Priscilla. Then there are questions to contemplate and and area to journal your thoughts if you desire.
As I said earlier I'm not usually drawn to this type of reading but I liked Priscilla's style in this. She presented each day's reading in a way that made you contemplate what it means in your life. The stories are hers but the situations are common to women so it was very easy to relate to the readings.
I thought that this would be a great morning and evening reading. It would also make a great gift to a friend. I thought it would be especially nice for that young mother that doesn't have gobs of time to do in depth Bible study but desires to stay in the Word amid the chaos of raising young children. Whether you decide to give it as a gift or use it yourself, I'm pretty sure that you won't be disappointed.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
This devotional is a must have! For me to be the best I can be, I must start my morning by being in His presence. This devotional just takes a couple of minutes of your time, but everyday has something that has spoken to my heart. The journaling section is great to record your thoughts or struggles and then be able to go back and see how He has worked and brought you through whatever struggle you are facing. This devotional is what I will be giving to friends and family for the holidays.
A 90 day devotional was not really something I thought I'd enjoy. However it was written by Priscilla Shirer so I dug in and started reading. After the first day I was thrilled and wanted to keep reading more. She's placed journaling prompts at the end of each day to help you go deeper and build that relationship. Loved it!!!
