From the Back:

Powerful Encounters With the Heart of Our Savior For Every Day
Do you long for more of God's presence? Do you ache to see Him at work in your life? Do you desire His peace and rest? Renowned worship leader Darlene Zschech invites you to gather with her around the Word of God. Born out of her own yearnings that she poured onto the pages of journals, these meditations and Scriptures reveal Jesus and speak of His finished work--how He tenderly cares for you and wants you to know Him.

Honest, raw, and beautifully written, these devotions will inspire your journey and encourage you in every season. Come, sit at the feet of our Lord, be strengthened in your weakness, embrace His love for you, and breathe in His peace.

My reflections:

When I was looking at the choices of books to review I actually skipped over this book on the first go around, but after looking it over some more I was drawn to this book, simply because it was beautifully appointed and beckoned me to drench my thirsty soul.  

Upon opening this book the beauty does not cease, it has been such a joy to review this bible study. The devotional has a companion CD that can be purchased separately, which would be ideal to enjoy while having your tea and devotion times in the morning.
This resource would be a splendid  gift for any Christian woman desiring to be inspired and uplifted by the word of God!.

The 365 day Devotional is formatted in the ideal manner. Each reading starts with a bible verse, a short reflection and then a prayer that pertains to the scripture and subject matter. The devotions are filled with hope, inspiration, motivation and peace.

If you are familiar with the author Darlene Zschech  you will appreciate the singer/ songwriters beautifully poetic way of writing, and her desire to draw her audience closer to the heavenly father we long to serve. Her song “shout to the Lord” happens to be one of my favorites!

This book will be one of those books I will cherish for many years to come. I highly recommend this devotional to any Christian woman who wants to cultivate a deeper more intimate relationship with our creator.
