I have found a most wonderfully inspiring book titled "The 365 Most Important Bible Passages For Women" of which a copy was sent to me " by Faith Words at Hachette Book Group as compensation for the Book Review.
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within". ElisabethKubler-Ross.
I really loved this quote. I must apologize to the author of this quote. Her last name Kubler is supposed to have the two little dots above the "u", but I didn't know how to put them on there. So I do know that I did not type your name correctly, so I am very sorry.
Do you have a special Bible verse that you think about or recite to yourself when you get discouraged? A verse or passage that gets you through the tough times reminding you that God is there watching over you? Well, This book is FULL of these passages. It is brimming with these Biblical passages and then also has short inspirational stories to go with each passage!
They had the right idea when they gave it the subtitle "Daily Readings and Meditations on Becoming the Woman God Created You to Be".
I enjoy the way that the Devotions are divided into sections as I explained above. That way you don't have to hunt for the specific prayer or devotion, just look up the topic. This book is very well laid out.
Here is a small taste for you.
A Man of Integrity
"He [Job] hasn't changed, even though you persuaded me to destroy him for no reason."
Satan answered, "There's no pain like your own. People will do anything to stay alive." . . .
"All right!" the Lord replied. "Make Job suffer as much as you want, but just don't kill him." Satan left and caused painful sores to break out all over Job's body--from head to toe.
Then Job sat on the ash-heap to show his sorrow. An while he was scraping his sores with a broken piece of pottery, his wife asked, "Why do you still trust God? Why don't you curse him and die?"
Job replied, "Don't talk like a fool! If we accept blessings from God, we must accept trouble as well." In all that happened, Job never once said anything against God. Job 2:3-4, 6-10 CEV (Contemporary English Version).
After this passage comes the explanation of Job's integrity. How he stood steadfast to God and loved Him. As he said if we are to accept blessings from God we must accept the trouble also and went into detail about what integrity means in a person and how important it is. That was today's Devotional in this precious book. As I said, it is full of wonderful and meaningful passages for Every need from Significance to Relationships and Communication. Even from Understanding Men, Choices, Stress & Community, Beauty and Health, Hope and Contentment and Last but NOT least, Faith and Love.
I don't think there is a problem that isn't covered with a Biblical reference in this book. I recommend it to all women.
If You like Devotional Books, this is an excellent one to use.
