This devotional book is written as though Jesus were sitting right with me, having coffee and donuts. He speaks to me in language that I would use, always encouraging, admonishing, and reminding me He is always there, always on my side, and always available to help. This is, I think, the best daily devotional written specifically for lay people. A wonderful book. I have ordered several for friends.
This is the best devotional I have ever used. Each day it is as if He is speaking directly to my heart. The cover is soft and pliable. It arrived quickly in great condition. I have purchased several for gifts and the price is $10 less than in the local book store.
My mother passed on to eternal life in December of 2014, and I felt numb & moved like I was blank inside....like, I was gone too. I found myself in a very sudden dark-deep-depression, rather quickly. She suffered from stage 4 lung cancer at the young age of 59. Heaven got a large amount of my heart on that cool Sunday night. I began to panic wondering how to make the best of the entire process...I knew
I had a uncountable amount of memories of her life and the last few days she spent on this Earth, very vividly...being a Christian was her first priority in life...period! So, I prayed and prayed, for over a month for a little more explanation of some sort, and assistance in the process of "healing". One day, I felt the power of the Lord say that he had the entry door for ME...So, I got into the truck and to Books a Million was my destination. I immediately thought now Lord...you know I can't stand to read... so, as you can probably guess..I'd never been in the store prior to this very moment....I walked in and around the aisle's until I came to a complete stand still..in front of this book...Best, item in existence..it's the best way for me to understand the importance of healing and the words just tune with my everyday life...it's NOT a bunch of literature that I can't understand the importance of. There is a paragraph or little more for each day of the year ..it's cleansing and it has been a great insight into what I have to look forward to seeing when I lay to rest. I love it and I have made it part of my every day routine.
My husband's grandmother passed away at the beginning of this month and I searched for the book online and found this wonderful site...purchased her one....and we now have the ability to exchange the word of the day. It's truly been a huge impact in my life. 28 years old and a mother of a 3.5 year old....I can't get enough of it.
