Dwelling Places: Words to Live in Every Season (Abingdon, June 2016)
Do you long for serenity and refuge, peace and hope? Are you seeking a deeper spiritual life through a closer relationship with God?
If you’re tired of dwelling in busyness and noise, then perhaps one word a day can change your life. Award-winning author Lucinda Secrest McDowell knows that if you spend time each day turning to God’s Word for wisdom and guidance, your faith can flourish and grow.
Through short and inspiring readings, McDowell unpacks a single word—such as mercy, beauty, gratitude, or grace—to reveal a biblical blessing or challenge relevant to where you are. Full of stories and illustrations to empower you to live the word you have just read, each devotional ends with a benediction, written as if God were speaking directly to you.
These “dwelling places” that offer the joy of God’s promise and presence cover four seasons: fall, Advent, Lent, and summer. Whether in the midst of busy holiday schedules, holy days, ordinary moments, or changing seasons, a deeper faith can be as simple as a single word.
There is NOTHING like the peace the Lord provides is there!!! I know for me, I have to seek that Peace and by that I mean setting time aside to be with the Lord through prayer and HIS Word! Dwelling Places: Words to Live in Every Season is a phenomenal devotional! It is broken up into 4 sections...Dwell, Shine, Renew, and Grow each one correlating with Fall, Advent, Lent and Summer. For my review I was to share my thoughts on the Summer readings or Grow.I love working in my yard and seeing Gods beauty and Summertime is my Favorite time of the year and adding this devotional to my morning quiet time was such a blessing!! Thank you Mrs. McDowell for hearing from the Lord and obeying HIS call to share this devotional with countless people!! Thank you Litfuse for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest review!
