Abundant Life in Jesus

The title says it all...what we all want, Abundant Life in Jesus.  Being a fan of Nancy Guthrie's bible studies, I was excited to see she had written a devotional.  This devotional is different from the other devotionals I have, and I have a lot.  How do we experience God's blessings?  Nancy Guthrie shows us that experiencing God's blessing is not merely getting good things from God.  The essence of blessing is God himself. But God does not force himself on anyone who does not desire him. The daily devotional is written with scripture at the top but the blessings are written as if God was speaking to you and with a prayer at the end.  Here is an excerpt to see just how it reads.  This life I've called you into is not about doing for me, it is about receiving from me.  I am serving you by blessing you with acceptance, forgiveness, freedom, and joy.  So let my goodness to you fill you up and spill out into the lives of others.

Not only is this devotional packed daily with insights from God along with blessings we all want but it is a beautiful leather book that is simply gorgeous.  I knew Nancy Guthrie wrote great bible studies but this devotional far exceeded my expectations. What a glorious gift for loved ones that want to see just how to experience God's blessings.

Thanks to Tyndale Publishers for my free copy just for my honest opinion.
