Do you read a book of devotions? Do you have a favorite? Through the years I have read a variety of devotionals along with my daily Bible readings. For many, many years (I’m not going to share a number), I have used the Daily Guideposts devotional with life-stories from some writers who have helped me along my journey.
There are so many devotionals—some for a year, others for 21, 30, 50 days. I always have one of these for daily readings. Sometimes, I repeat old favorites such as Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I’m open for suggestions from you too.
Recently, a friend shared about one she helped write, Who I Want to Be. It came in the mail today. I’ll let you know what I think. This one is being translated into Japanese as a ministry to more women.
Devotionals can have themes or be companions to other books. Two that I loved have gorgeous pictures to support the words. Since I am a visual learner, the pictures give the words deeper meaning. Devotions from the Front Porch and Devotions from the Garden are ones I will read over and over.
Have you ever read companion devotionals? Here are three of the ones I’ve enjoyed: Through the Year with George MacDonald, The Anne of Green Gables Devotional, and Praying with Jane (Austen), both by Rachel Dodge. I’m thinking of writing a companion devotional for my Revolutionary Faith series.
Two old favorites always jump back into my reading. Jesus Calling by Sarah Young holds a dear place in my heart—so poignant! Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado is a keeper with morning and evening selections.
I’m always looking for a good devotional. Do you have a suggestion?
