The actionable devotional, Every Day with Jesus: God Loves and Cares for You by Shirley A. Howard, contains 365 spiritual truths to encourage you each day and remind you that God is with you. The book explores various themes including peace, hope, faith, communion, love, and more, offering biblical insight and perspective for facing everyday challenges. In one devotional, it encourages us to let the love that flows from God and into us reside in our hearts. It also motivates us to be compassionate and caring with those we encounter. Each day of the year offers a brief poem, a passage from scripture, a straightforward discussion that delves deeper into the meaning of the scriptural quotation, an uplifting prayer, and space for jotting down personal thoughts and memories. It also includes beautiful poems and quotations from scripture for each month.
I loved that the devotional can be used by anyone regardless of where they are in their lives. It can be utilized by couples, friends, and groups. It can also make a great devotional for families with children as its language and discussions are accessible. I also appreciated that the meditations are concise and useful for daily living and I found the poems inspiring. By encouraging her audience to resist fear by trusting God, finding joy and contentment in Him, and showing empathy and love to others, Howard inspires us to remember the truth that frees us from daily issues, focus on Jesus, and take practical action to help others. Each day's space provides a place to recall the lessons included and think of ways to apply them. Every Day with Jesus by Shirley A. Howard is a timely devotional with powerful and practical wisdom for facing each day. Highly recommended.
