Abundant Life Day Book: 365 Blessings to Begin Your Day by Nancy Guthrie
Beautiful, Holy-Spirit inspired - a hug each and every day. Abundant Life Day Book asks many questions in each day's devotional. I love questions because the questions allow me to spend introspective time with God.
So many other daily devotionals suffer from wordiness with more preaching and less exhortation. I found the questions thoughtful and refreshing. Each day began with a theme, and then a Scripture verse to support the statement. However, my favorite part was the conversation that followed. The conversation was not written from author Nancy Guthrie. The author has posed the conversation as if it were from God to the reader!!!
How special to pick up a beautiful devotional book such as this and flip open that day's devotional and let God through His Holy Spirit ask questions and share modern day struggles, challenges, ups and downs with me? Having each day written this way allowed me an element of expectation. What will tomorrow's devo contain? (yes, I flipped ahead and I know many readers will read the next day's devo the day ahead because it is that good!) No doubt, each day will take less than five minutes to read. However, the takeaway and the feasting throughout the entire day on what the reader read that morning will be so helpful in fighting the good fight (Ephesians 6)!
Nancy Guthrie has given her reader not only a devotional book but a resource to last many years and beyond. It will be a perpetual reminder that anyone who cracks it open can glean more of God's goodness and learn personally about God's plan for him/her (Jeremiah 29:11.)
This book is abundantly filled with many reminders to live a life pleasing to Him! A wonderful Christmas gift. Perfect to carry in your purse or keep on your nightable. Before you put your feet on the floor in the morning, be reminded of how much God loves you and wants a personal relationship with you. Well done Nancy Guthrie!
