31 Days of Drawing Near To God April 17, 2011

I received the book 31 Days of Drawing Near to God for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. The book, by Ruth Myers, was previously released as The Satisfied Heart.

What I most appreciated about this daily devotional guide was that the author began with her own testimony. The first 32 pages chronicles her story of faith, love, loss and full reliance on God. I found myself drawn into Ms. Myers’ life and the faith she relied on and found as she moved through the journey of her life. From young love, to parenthood, to losing a spouse and becoming a single parent, to years of service while waiting on God, the lessons she learned are in the pages of this book to share with us. Read an excerpt of her story here.

Each day features 4-5 pages of easy reading. Ms. Myers’ commentary begins the reading and a prayer ends the reading. The commentary is full of scripture with each day listing “God’s words of love for me today.” These are the verses mentioned and/or included in the daily reading.

If you are interested in having this devotional book, please leave a comment and share how you make spending intimate time with God a priority? How do you fit it into your schedule? How do you deal with distractions? (Can you tell I need some tips? Still struggling with this area of my life.)
