About the book

Powerful Encounters With the Heart of Our Savior For Every Day.

Do you long for more of God's presence? Do you ache to see Him at work in your life? Do you desire His peace and rest? Renowned worship leader Darlene Zschech invites you to gather with her around the Word of God. Born out of her own yearnings that she poured onto the pages of journals, these meditations and Scriptures reveal Jesus and speak of His finished work--how He tenderly cares for you and wants you to know Him.

Honest, raw, and beautifully written, these devotions will inspire your journey and encourage you in every season. Come, sit at the feet of our Lord, be strengthened in your weakness, embrace His love for you, and breathe in His peace.

My Thoughts

For this particular book, I had decided to do a few weeks of devotions in order to get a feel from it.    So on May 1st, I embarked on a discovery on who Jesus is in my life while reading the daily devotions included in the book.    Each devotions encourages you to dig in the Bible while reading the scripture at the top of the page.  The scriptures included are from different versions of the Bible.   I decided to check out the NIV and NLT when I read something that was different to what I am used too.   Then the author shares about the theme of the day in a one-page devotion.  At the end of the page, you will find a small prayer to help you connect with God.  This prayer can become a stepping stone for a deeper connection with your Father in Heaven.

I have enjoyed going through this devotional during the weeks I used it.   The perspective of the author on various theme like requesting from God, Joy in our lives, worshipping and so on, gives you a fresh look on well-known scriptures.  Each month covers a new side of Jesus that we might have missed or forgotten.  This devotional book reveals various aspects of Christ and how he can be real in our lives even today.    I particularly love her fresh tone and openness in sharing in the devotions.  

Even though it’s a year long devotional book, I think you can pick it up anytime during the year and discover Jesus from that part of the year.    Though I find that this book would make a marvelous Christmas gifts for women in your life – whether it’s a mom, mother-in-love, sisters, sisters-in-love, friends or mentors.
