Encouraging reminders of grace
on 9 May 2016
Written by various women, this e-book offers a short reading from the Bible for each day, and then some personal commentary or thoughts related to the reading and to the overall theme for the month concerned. Each devotion ends with a prayer, some of which I found helpful and encouraging.
Inevitably the quality and relevance of the commentaries are variable; sometimes I found myself nodding and agreeing, other times shaking my head in bewilderment at some cultural or other reference that meant nothing to me. The book is American, after all, and I am not.
I don’t think I learned anything new from this book, or had any tremendous insights, but I was reminded more than once of something important. I appreciated the time given by the women who put this book together, and I liked having little insights into their very different homes and lives.
I didn't read it according to the dates, but mostly picked it up when travelling as my Kindle is so light and easy to pack. I liked not being tied to dates; but it would probably work more effectively as once-a-day readings starting in January.
