What I’m Reading – Where God Finds You

21 Dec
My Thoughts

I am always on the lookout for devotionals, not only for myself but also to recommend to others who are searching for the same. I use devotionals often during my quiet time in the morning and in the evening. 

I absolutely love Where God Finds You as a daily devotional. 
Each devotion includes:

• A dramatic retelling of Scripture that allows the reader to crawl into the pages of the Bible.
• The Story from God’s Word: a quote or paraphrase of the applicable Bible passage in a reader-friendly version.
• The Story—From Then to Now: a personal reflection from the author to help link the passage to life today.
• The Story—Questions to Think About: prompts for personal reflection or group discussion that lead to practical application.

The retelling of the story of the woman who touched the hem of Jesus was so beautiful and I couldn’t wait to read more. There are 40 characters shared from Joseph to the woman who anointed the feet of Jesus. Each one sharing a message that applies to our lives as followers of Christ.

Anita Higman has graciously offered to give away a copy of 
Where God Finds You to one blessed Saved Sister reader.

About the Book

In forty devotional tales, Where God Finds You breathes new life into ancient Bible characters. Live with and learn about more than forty Bible men and women, including the wife of Pontius Pilate, Esther, John the Baptist, Delilah, Lazarus, and Mary Magdalene.

Through reflection on Scripture and prayer, you’ll discover a place in each of these lives of vulnerability, tenderness, truth, and love—a place where you can find God . . . and where God finds you.

Where God Finds You is unique among women’s devotional books in that it brings dozens of men and women of the Bible to life through dramatic short stories, connects biblical truths to today’s culture, and offers readers an opportunity to reflect on what they’ve learned.

    It's hard for me to pick just one person in the Bible to learn about – Esher, Mary, Joseph, Noah, David. Ugh! David?
