Book Review: 31 Days of Drawing Near to God

I don't generally pick up my bible, open to a random page and start reading.  I like structure and guidance, so I prefer to have a devotional book that gives me specific scripture to read and helps pull things together and give insight.  I was glad to see "31 Days of Drawing Near to God" by Ruth Myers was available for review. Anything that helps me get nearer to Him is exactly what I need. 

Myers starts with a moving introduction by telling "her story."  She gives an overview of her life up to now with it's many ups and downs including the ups and downs of her faith.  Her daily devotions include more details of her story that point to who He is and who we are in Him.  The subtitle of the book is "Resting Securely in His Delight" and Myers gives wonderful examples in scripture that show we truly are His delight.  The book is full of reminders about the true relationship that we should have with the Father and of our identity as His chosen and cherished children.  I really enjoyed each day of finding or rediscovering the overwhelming love He has for me.  The devotions were just the right length as were the suggested scripture readings.  I would recommend this to anyone, but especially to anyone who is feeling distant from the Lord or who would like to be reminded of His love and drawn closer to Him.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review; however my opinion was not influenced in any way.
