Pause for Power

I have tons of pictures and lots to share about our Christmas celebration, but I'm going to put that off for a few days.  I know that many people are looking for fresh ideas and resources to use during their quiet times for the new year and I have been blessed to review some amazing resources that I would like to share with you over the next two or three days.

Karen Davis with the B&B Media Group sent me a copy of Dr. Warren Wiersbe's Pause for Power:  A 365 Day Journey in the Scriptures.  This devotional covers fifteen different books of the Bible:  Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter and 1 John.  The insights are taken from Wiersbe's BE commentaries.

I especially liked that the readings are blended.  You may read a scripture passage from the prophet Isaiah one day and the next find yourself challenged by Paul's writing in Romans.  Each day the reader is given a scripture passage to read followed by Wiersbe's insights into that passage.  Each day's devotional ends with a question and short prayer of reflection that purposefully helps the reader to commit their heart and mind to God's direction.

Dr. Wiersbe doesn't talk over your head, but shares deep truth in bite-sized portions.   I know with little ones at home, I don't always have large amounts of time to spend reading.  I found Weirsbe's devotional to be very practical and "doable" as a busy mom.  It is also very appealing to know that over the course of a year with this devotional there is the opportunity to study fifteen books of the Bible.

I can highly recommend this devotional resource. The devotional can be purchased at Amazon by following the link provided.
