Great devotional

THE ONE YEAR HEARING HIS VOICE DEVOTIONAL

365 Days Of Intimate Communication With God

By Chris Tiegreen

Looking for a devotional to use throughout the year, one that is easy to read and follow, this is the one for you. You can use it each day and receive a very important lesson from God and His word each day of the year. You will have a verse from the Bible to read and you get a description and an important message from that verse. The author writes some of the descriptions as if God Himself were talking to you in person. I found the devotions very helpful and very informative not just words written to go with the verse but very helpful and easy to understand. Each day can begin with a heart inspiring word and help you face the day.

The author gives you a meaningful description of the verse that helps you understand the verse and put it to use in your life. This is not just another devotional with inspirational stories to go with the verse but gives worthwhile meaning and can help you hear God speaking to you and what He wants you to know. You will see that listening to God is a process, a journey and an adventure that you will enjoy and look forward to each day of the year.

Great lessons from a great story

52 LITTLE LESSONS FROM LES MISERABLES

BY Bob Welch

A small book but packed with a lot of information. The author takes you step by step through the story written by Victor Hugo, the magnificent story of Les Miserables, revealing lessons that God has placed in the story, and how these lessons, are needed by the world today. He begins giving you a short outline of the story in case you never read the book, seen the play or seen the different movie versions. The book, divided into 52 short chapters, it easy to read and to understand. The author points out many life lessons that are in the story which makes the story that much more interesting and will give you inspiration in your own life. It may not be what you would expect to be inspirational but God can use all things to His own good.

The author shows just how God has used this story to offer the reader a new view of this story. A view that may be missed by others. The true meaning that God offers the reader is a chance to change their own life by the Godly acts of the characters of this story. Read the book and enjoy a new view of a great classic.
