You know those divine moments in life when you’re studying scripture or reading a devotional and it was like it came to be just for you, right then and there at that moment in history? Y’all I’m not even being dramatic when I say this is true with this devotional. I got it in the mail to review and decided to read one right quick, so I flipped through and randomly stopped at Day 284. Again, not kidding when I say the scripture the devo led with and the story told were things I needed to hear. I had been praying for specific things and this was not only an answer but a great encouragement for two situations in my life.
So yeah, one devotional in and I became an instant fan.
The Devotional for Women provides a solution to a problem that nearly all women have—how to be more faithful to read God’s Word and know how to apply it to their lives. It addresses this need by offering 366 daily Bible devotions for women of all ages that together form the heart of biblical womanhood. Progressing from Genesis to Revelation, content includes a strong focus on God’s Word, biblical application, and additional helps such as several options for Bible reading plans.
God’s Word is applicable to the life of every woman. Whereas many daily devotionals offer encouragement for the heart, The Devotional for Women offers that encouragement as well as biblical exposition all in a user friendly, quick read format to change lives in the every day rhythm of life.
I really like this little devotional. It’s full of God’s truth, encouragement and His word. All the things you want in a devotional. I also was a huge fan of the extra space for personal reflection and prayer, as well as the biblical exposition in each entry. Plus it uses passages from Genesis through Revelation, so you get encouraged from each part of the bible.
On an aesthetics note – I love the size and leather purple cover. It’s not massive, but not to small that I can’t read it. I also liked that each day was numbered and not a date on the calendar. It’s one of those little things that won’t make me feel too terrible when I go through a patch of missing a day or two (or week) of devotional reading.
In total random questions of the day, what’s one of your favorite books in the Bible?
