Recently I received the God’s Promises Devotional Journal from Thomas Nelson Publishers for review. The journal wasn’t exactly what I expected, but I wasn’t disappointed either. It is an attractive, hardcover devotional journal—as it says it is. Within, there is one half-page devotional thought for each day of a year. The lower half of each page has a question to consider and lined space for the reader’s personal answers, ideas, and prayers. The text is green to match the leaf theme of the cover and gentle background design inside.
The devotionals themselves come from the published works of several writers. Some are my favorites: Max Lucado, Catherine Marshall, Sarah Young, Barbara Johnson and more. Though I have most of these writer’s books already, it’s nice to find specific thoughts singled out in a different format to be considered in another way. Other writers have recently been introduced to me: David Jeremiah, R.C. Sproul, Sheila Walsh, Anne Graham Lotz, Henry and Richard Blackaby, and more. I was thankful for the opportunity to read a little more of their work. And then there were several authors who were totally new to me and a few from a publication called God’s Daily Answer.
Though it’s already March, if you’re looking for a devotional journal with thought-provoking questions for growing ideas in your mind, you can easily jump in anywhere with this one. The God's Promises Devotional Journal will help you enjoy nuggets of wisdom from respected authors while cultivating your own thoughts.
