God's ways are not our ways, neither are his thoughts our thoughts. It should come as no surprise that the teachings found in the Bible often conflict with our thoughts and behaviors. This conflict sets the stage for My "I" Problem with God's Word. These devotions, written in the first person, do not express the author's personal struggles with God's Word; rather, they describe the reader's spiritual journey. From the first paragraph, the reader becomes the "I," allowing God to expose personal sin and the struggle of exchanging worldly ways for holy living. The reader enters into the spiritual struggle and victory. Each chapter highlights one or two verses, uniquely explained and applied through five daily readings. The subjects include thankfulness, spiritual battles, faith being tested, and forgiving others. My "I" Problem with God's Word is the first in a series of devotionals. Daily readings 51-100 is projected to be published in the spring of 2010.
