Customer Reviews of 365 Devotions for Finding Rest

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Way to Start or End the Day What a timely topic for a devotional. 365 Devotions for Finding Rest will encourage readers to slow down and focus on refreshment, even if only for a moment--something everyone needs to do. I love how beautiful this book is. Every page is pleasing to the eye, with an attractive font, pretty ferns spotting the corners, and a soft blue color as the background to each page. The devotions are sorted by date (starting January 1). Every month begins with a short verse. Each devotion is easily consumable; one page each, making it the perfect devotional to start every morning. Each devotion has a verse, short (about 3 paragraphs) reading, and sentence-long prayer. I wish the devotions and the prayer were a little longer, but this book is meant for a quick start read, and I think the message might be contradicted if it took a long time! Each devotion ties into the theme of "rest;" sample titles include: -Rest from Productivity -Delight in Today -Rest in Being Uniquely You -Connect With God -Bitter Into Sweet The book is hardcover and small but thick (comes in around 400 pages). It also has a ribbon marker to hold your page as you go through the devotions and a "to/from" presented page should this be a gift. At the end, there is a scripture index to show where each passage is referenced (helpful if you want to find a devotion appropriate for a specific verse). It also outlines which edition of the Bible the verse comes from (MSG, CEV, etc.). I wish there was a topic index, but since this devotional is arranged by date, I think most readers would go by date rather than topic anyway. Through every devotion runs a similar vein; something I think many of us need to acknowledge and add to our lives. This is an important message, and I'm so glad a devotion like this exists. The topic of this book merits a spot on your table--the appealing design will guarantee it stays. I also found out there are other devotionals done in this beautiful style; 365 Devotions for Peace and 365 Devotions for Hope. I'm happy to know that after I'm done this book, I can try one of those. Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
