I picked up another book from Lifeway. Yes it has surely been a while and I have been struggling with some things but that is for a much later post… When I have had the ability to organize my thoughts (if that is even relatively possible). Its a daily devotional.. It says to “feed your family and your faith” but as many devotionals if can be used for just about anyone. The cover of the book is very interesting… but once you get inside you get a complete grasp to the “quirky questions” it says it has inside. For example… “If every broken thing became truly beautiful with your care would that change the way you treated things?” “What if the worse something was treated, the worse it would become, eventually eliminating the beautiful thing?” Then the book goes on to give scripture and a lesson to go along with it.
I love how it catches your attention right away and really gets your mind thinking about your life. The lessons are engaging and at the end gives you another “If what if” at the end. I really enjoyed the weekly recaps too. As families we very seldom sit down and gather around and talk about our weeks. The different sections are great. “Catch up, Recap, Grow together, Open up, and Pray” This really gives a purpose to our family time and devotions and allows us to openly talk about our weeks and be transparent about what we took from the weeks worth of lessons.
Overall I would say this would be a great place to START and even further your family/group devotions. I would encourage you (and I’m looking in a metaphorical mirror while saying this as well) to take the time to get involved with your family and in the Bible. Its okay if we fall away. There is always a place where you can pick right back up. Even if you feel like you haven’t been with God just know He has been with you this whole way patiently waiting for you to turn back to Him.
God Bless. And please pray for me. I have drifted as many of us do and I am in the process of turning. =) Love you all bunches!
