We got a new devotional book last week that I absolutely love! The great thing about this particular book is that all it’s devotions are written as if God is talking to you, like love letters written straight from God. Honestly, I suggest this devotional for anyone…at any age (and honestly wondering if I get more out of it than my kids!)
What else I love about this book and what God has chosen to do is that one night at dinner I thought it would be a good time to read it. Dinner is one of the more stressful events in our house. Combine my anxiety about cooking with a picky eater or two and things can turn really negative really quickly (who else knows that if Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy?) So this week, I’ve been getting the devotional out after I’m done eating and reading it out loud at the table. And the most amazing thing has happened…I am less stressed and dinnertime is much more peaceful.
What a sweet gift it is that God continues to show me that if I bring Him and His Word into any situation, the focus changes and I am reminded of His great love and involvement in every situation!
