A devotional can be a great way to engage with God and it’s not too late to join in with author Catherine Campbell! Her beautiful daily devotionals take the reader on a journey throughout the year. Even if you didn’t start on January 1st, there are plenty more days in the year to be encouraged by her words. Here are 5 reasons to grab yourself a copy of her book:
A warm, relateable style of writing. It really does feel like you are walking with her each day as a friend. The short paragraphs are easy-to-read, conversational and keep you focused on the Lord in a fun, relaxed way.
A stunning cover. I know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but having this on your bookshelf is a reminder of the great content that is inside it.
A mixture of bible passages to reflect on and the author’s own thoughts. Interspersed throughout, there are days where there is just a passage of scripture and four questions to reflect on: What does it say? What does it mean? What is God saying to me? How will I respond? This is a great way to really slow down and meditate on the words.
A short prayer at the end of Catherine’s own reflections. These prayers are only couple of lines long, but they capture the heart of what the reading has been been about. It’s a great way to finish each daily devotion.
A verse at the top to start followed by a reading to go and look up. We are invited to open up our own Bibles to look at the reading that surrounds the chosen verse that Catherine has picked out for the day. It’s always great to look over a verse, but it’s helpful to see the context of that verse and ponder it for ourselves, which is exactly what Catherine helps to facilitate.
