Roberts will challenge you to a deeper intimacy with God.
FRANCES J. ROBERTS (19182009) is best known for her classic devotional Come Away My Beloved. She founded The King's Press in 1964, where she authored and published Come Away and eight other books, selling over 1.5 million copies in 30 years. After graduating from Moody Bible Institute in 1938, Roberts served as Floridas state director for Child Evangelism Fellowship, writing the popular Wordless Book Song during her tenure there. An accomplished musician with eighty-eight published hymns, Roberts also taught at a Spanish mission school and worked as a professional accompanist, performing at various churches.
Robert's unique talent is her ability to portray God's voice as if God speaks to the reader, one-on-one, with Holy Spirit inspired words. She writes, "Come Away My Beloved was forged in the crucible of life," where Roberts felt the ministering winds of the Holy Spirit blow words of "encouragement, hope, comfort and conviction" into each day's joys and trials.
Powerful sentences such as, "My child, do not expect the trials to be lighter than in the past."
"How can I give you healing for your body while there is anxiety in your mind?" "Oh My child, lay your heart in my hand and let me heal it." "My hand is upon you, and I will keep you in all places wherever you go. I am your God, and I am your Father, and I will care for you and provide for you..." These words of love bring readers into God's Holy presence.
The small book of devotions and writings, updated into modern language is broken into six sections. "The Call of Love, Living Water, Launch Out! Learn to Reign, Listen to the Silence and The Sounding of the Trumpet. A scripture index completes the book.
Roberts' rare writing style is like reading a "devotion from God," written especially for you. If you're unfamiliar with her easy-to-read inspiring body of work I encourage you to save yourself a trip and purchase several inexpensive copies, one for yourself and several more for family and friends. I did.
