My Thoughts:

As I first glanced through this little treasure, I immediately thought of two women that I would like to give it to.  As I took the time to read through many of the devotions, I learned how truly special this little devotional is.  Each short devotional offers a sweet story or illustration along with a scripture and simple statement of truth to claim. In mere minutes each day, this little book can help re-align your focus and remind you of basic truths.  This book would make a terrific gift, and I do plan to buy a couple more to give away.  I'm holding on to my own copy!!
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.


AND NOW...THE FIRST DEVOTION:

75 Candles

    Have you taken an inventory of what’s important in your life? Birthdays are a great time to reflect and look forward. Imagine you were blowing out 75 candles on your birthday cake. What would you want to have accomplished by then?

 Before Bill and I were married, I never would have imagined the Lord would use my husband and me so dramatically. God guided us to start Campus Crusade for Christ, an organization that has become a worldwide ministry with more than half a million workers.

 Our goal from the beginning was to put God first in our lives and do all we planned for His honor and glory.

 So, dear one, let me ask: Have you let God be the center of your life goals? Are you willing to let Him use you? Ask God today to take over every area of what you do. He will do a marvelous work with your life too.

Whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him (2 Corinthians 5:9).

This I Believe

You can never go wrong putting
God first in everything.
