Joan5 Stars Out Of 5Gold Nuggets For Every SeasonOctober 4, 2014Joan"A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver." [Proverbs 25:11]
Sometimes you just have to sit back and let yourself be amazed again and again at the good 'before-hand' of our great Lord! I'm sure L. B. Cowman never would have imagined the degree to which God would use her painful experiences to bless all of us --even to this day, long past her home-going. Streams In The Desert is the product of Mrs. Cowman gathering and compiling nuggets from the writings and oratories of Augustine, Phillips Brooks, Henry Drummond, Jonathan Edwards, A.B. Simpson, Emerson, Longfellow, Frances R. Havergal, Harriet Beecher Stowe and a host of others into one place for her personal healing and comfort. This gem has survived well beyond her death (her falling asleep) because it has been appointed by God for ALL our times --our seasons. We all need encouraging especially "in the night seasons". This is my third purchase for a friend and family who are going through or are coming through 'something'. But this little gem isn't just for the hard times. What a great gift to us, from the Lord through Mrs. Cowman,to help prepare us to faithfully FACE the painful time(s) coming into our lives, our homes, with our children or grandchildren. And, WHAT a gift to give!
As for the product. It's ribboned, it's housed in a beautifully soft walnut Italian, it's the right size for display wherever or to carry in a purse or business satchel or briefcase, backpack --whatever. At it's so readable thanks to Jim Reimann who has done a superb job once again by making the original work accessible to our 21st Century minds and eyes, without fiddling with Cowman or all contributing authors' work. For me (and maybe you will, too), I was introduced to some deep Christian thinkers of yesterday who I never met in print. This was another blessing on my purchase(s); I was encouraged to search out these saints of yesterday who've become new friends! Finally, CBD (for me) tops any price! They just continue to offer the best product for the best value. Five stars is my only option here to recommend this product highly. But it really gets SEVEN stars from me. Thank you for reading my review.
Sandi5 Stars Out Of 5Extremely Annointed Devotional..January 25, 2016SandiQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I just purchased two more of these books. I must have purchased 16 or 18 by now to give as gifts. This book is so spiritually charged, I pray or experience something, and within minutes, He is speaking to me through this book. Its wonderful. And, you can read todays message and next year the same dates message will take on a whole new meaning but still minister to you in such a divine way. Everyone should have one and if you do, buy some more as gifts. People are seriously blessed by this book.
Gayleonly5 Stars Out Of 5best devotional everDecember 27, 2016GayleonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Streams In the Desert is, in my opinion, the best devotional book ever. There is a short reading for each day that is solidly based on the Bible and is focused on trusting God through difficult circumstances. A friend gave it to me when my son became paraplegic after an accident, and it was very encouraging. I have bought several copies for friends who are going through deep struggles. I like to keep a copy on hand to have ready to give as a gift. For this reason, I especially like the look and feel of the leather bound copy.
