31 Days of Drawing Near To God - My Review

From the cover:
Resting Securely in His Delight

Isn't that something each of us desires?  What could possibly compare to know that God has control of our lives.  This year I've had such a deep burning to feel a stronger connect with the Lord and that's just why I chose this book.

From the back coverDraw Near . . . He'll answer your deepest longings.  

With chapters like, Everything About Him Says Something About Me and He Is Always In Control, I couldn't resist wanting to read this book.  I wanted to know more and I thought Ruth Myers might just have the insight to help me grow in my search.  

Do you enjoy the soul-satisfying intimacy with God you were created for? 
In this heartfelt devotional, beloved author Ruth Myers invites you to a personal, daily encounter with your first, last and best love.

In her book Ruth encourages the reader to not just read her words but to study her references with her.  She quotes others as well.  I like that the whole book is devoted to 31 days.  That in itself tells me that there is a start and an expected finish time.  When you have trouble focusing on one thing, like I do, this is a plus, it's not a daunting task that may go unfinished.  Each days reading is short but is very thoughtfully written and contains powerful message.  What Ruth does, is provide food for thought and direction for your search. Each day Ruth shares her touches, Bible scriptures and a prayer.  It's a place to start each day and then go further with your Bible in hand.  She reminds us just how much God longs to have us draw near to him.
