At the beginning of this year, I mentioned to you that I had started reading 31 Days of Praise, by Ruth Myers. Now that it’s almost March, I wanted to check in with you again to see if any of you have been reading it too.
What I love about this book is that it is straight from scripture. There are no author opinions on how I should be living my life, no one telling me what I should or should not be doing, no suggestions about what a scripture might mean. It’s simply scripture put into prayers of praise.
While I’ve been reading it for almost 90 days already, I’m still only on Day 11. Why? Because this book is meant to be savored. I read the same pages over and over as I meditate on the words and focus my thoughts on the Truth from the scriptures. I’m chewing on it slowly, letting God’s promises seep in, in the midst of my praise to Him.
I highly encourage 31 Days of Praise and would love for you to experience the richness of all this book has to offer.
I should also mention that I am also very much enjoying Jesus Calling. It’s words are a constant reminder to me to let go of control and worry – and to simply let Jesus be my savior. I read it on my own each morning, then I read it to my boys at breakfast. It is wonderful.
Have you read, or are you reading either of these books?
