Devotional Thoughts

This beautiful devotional gift book is for readers who want to experience God's presence in a new and exciting way.

The devotional messages take only moments to read, but are packed with biblical promise and perspective.

with God.

    Every other page in this devotional is graced stunning photography!

    The images alone are a feast for the eyes and a moment of refreshment to a weary mind. Gorgeous mountain ranges, peaceful harbors lit by sunset light, a rainbow splitting a storm-washed sky, a tiny girl dancing on the beach with joy shining around her- Lorraine has captured so many moments of glory.

    And once you have been moved by the visuals, you have a brief devotional reading to absorb. Lorraine writes in an increasingly popular style, as if God is speaking directly to the reader.

    She speaks of God's strength when we are fearful, or simplicity of heart in a complicated world, and always of love. God's love, and our love for each other.

    This would make a very sweet gift for somebody's birthday, or as a recuperation present for someone who'd been ill, or even just a "thinking of you" surprise.

    I thank Chosen Publishers for my review copy.

    It isn't often that something is both beautiful on the inside and the outside, but that rare occurrence comes together in this book. Open the cover of this volume, and you will find stunning pictures that are paired with encouraging Bible verses. The short messages that accompany the verses seem as if they are straight from the mouth of God. It is a visual treat to look at the pictures. The uplifting Bible verses, and encouraging messages feed the soul.

    "Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads....

    Sprinkled throughout the volume are instances when God clearly made Himself known to the author, or her acquaintances. These encounters impart hope, even when it appears hope is nowhere to be found. Mrs. Varela shares a time when all seemed to be lost. Her husband developed the fastest moving cancer his doctor had ever seen. They were perplexed since they had spent months praying and fasting for him to be healed. Anyone suffering with a health problem will find the outcome very thought provoking.

    ....and I will give you rest."

    It is the author's desire that this book will allow you to hear God's voice, to inspire you to be still, and listen to the message He has for each of us. The contents of this volume can easily be applied to everyday life. I was deeply touched by this volume, really enjoyed it, and it gave me peace. This is a gift book that has a striking scene on its padded cover, and is very well made with quality material. This volume is a treasure to own, and a priceless gift to receive. It will bring the reader joy. I highly recommend this 5-star book to anyone who enjoys uplifting words of God displayed in a beautiful manner.

    I love this little book. I love the fact that it is a hardcover and has a ribbon bookmark attached. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and the words are both profound and inspiring. I flipped through the pages when it came complimentary from the publisher, but it wasn't until I read the introduction that it made me want to read it cover to cover. I love the way the author presented this book. It's not a typical daily devotional, which I'm personally not fond of. Instead, it speaks to me with encouragement about issues that I can relate to. After reading it, I couldn't help but think that some of these pages seem to be written just for me! I have a messenger bag that I bring with me when I leave my house with my notebook and my crocheting. Instead of hiding this book on the bookshelf, I have added it to my bag. When I need a nudge to get me out of a rut, I pick up this book. It's worth buying for yourself, your family, and your friends.

    With stunning photography accompanied by scripture verses and a short message seemingly written from God, Powerful Moments In The Presence Of God is a beautiful book full of grace, beauty and faith. Perfect as a gift or personal use, the devotional quality in this glossy, full-color, smaller hardcover version presents very well. Through her camera lens and writings, author Lorraine Marie Varela enjoys drinking coffee, traveling, meeting people and sharing the love of God.


    Though not sure I encountered each devotion in the intended manner, I realize time with God is personal in each relationship with Him. From my perspective, I enjoyed the beautiful photography, the scripture appearing with each photo, the lay-out of the book, and the ability to use it as a devotional even though I may not have made some of the same connections between the photos and the messages. Still, a gorgeous little devotional book definitely worth sharing.
