Title: At the Feet of Jesus: Daily Devotions to Nurture A Mary Hear
Author: Joanna Weaver
Publisher: WaterBrook Press
About the Book:
You were made for more than serving God; you were made to know Him.
Intimacy with God—to know Him and be known by Him. It is what our hearts desperately need, but somehow life conspires to keep us busy and distracted.
For anyone who struggles when it comes to daily devotions, At the Feet of Jesus extends an irresistible invitation to set aside your duties and find the amazing peace and incredible joy that come from time alone with Him. Drawn from Joanna Weaver’s beloved Bethany trilogy, each reading in this 365-day devotional includes a Bible reading passage and reflection question. All-new material and “Going Deeper” sidebars are also woven throughout.
Discover for yourself the riches that come from spending a portion of each day alone with God. At the feet of Jesus—where true life begins! Includes a unique One-Year Bible Reading Guide.
I like the idea of having a daily devotional. The description of this book really drew me in because it talks about intimacy with God and knowing him. Often we are so focused on serving God that we don’t focus on knowing him and building a truly intimate relationship with him. I want to close my eyes, prayer and read about God, ask him to help me understand the words and teaching of the bible. I like this yearly devotional because each day I open it up and read the Bible passage and the reflection question. I do wish it wasn’t already dated so if you missed a day you don’t have to skip around. I just received the book a few weeks ago so I couldn’t read the start of the book.
Nothing is repetitive in this book, each one different and though provoking. It starts with the bible scripture, then Weaver starts telling a story whether it’s about her life, other religions and cultures, what if situations, and bible parables, then it ends with another bible verse and a question for reflection. You are guided to think more and evaluate how the devotional for that day relates to you. This is a great way to get back into or to start reading your bible. I like to start with the verse at the beginning and read some of the other verses. This book is great for any Christian woman. Even if you are not reading the bible with this its a great way to get someone started with building towards an intimate relationship with God.
