I wanted to take a minute to share with you my absolute favorite devotional resources that have helped me to keep a regular quiet time with God. Whatever we go through, happy or sad, it is critical that we constantly invite God into our experience. God is our beginning and our end, the one who can lead us through every moment and set us up for ultimate success in life, love, family, careers, EVERYTHING. Spending daily time with God is the way to ask God to join us on that journey. So I wanted to share my top ten favorite devotionals in case you want to check them out!
1. Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. This is hands down my favorite devotional…EVER. I cannot explain how completely awesome this devotional is. I know Sarah was led by God to write this because so many people I know read this and feel that each reading is right on target for their needs that day. Jesus Calling provides 1 devotional reading for each day of the year. Even cooler? It’s available as an app you can download to your phone or tablet also! WIN!!!
2. & 3. Boss Women Pray/Boss Men Pray by Kachelle Kelly. If you are an entrepreneur or in leadership in any form, this is a great devotional prayer guide for you! Kachelle Kelly connects so easily to the deepest yearnings and needs of entrepreneurs and leaders. Each day provides a prayer, devotional, and supporting Scriptures to help you engage the Holy for success in life and business. It’s AWESOME! (I’m working through this one, right now!)
4. Enjoy The Silence: A 30 Day Experiment in Listening To God by Maggie and Duffy Robbins. This devotional is everything. I love it because it takes you through the process of lectio divina, an ancient practice of reading and meditating on God’s word and allowing it to speak to and transform us. The devotionals in this book are so powerful! They realy allow you to truly sit quietly and reflect on Scripture passages. It is amazing what happens, and what you will encounter and experience.
5. Streams in the Desert: 366 Devotional Readings by L.B. Cowman. This is an AMAZING devotional. Okay, I know I’ve said that about all of them, but this is one of the best selling devotionals of all-time. It was written by one the world’s most incredible Christian writers while she was standing through her own personal storm of the declining health of her husband. She tells of her experience of how God provides streams in the desert, hope in the midst of absolute despair. Bonus: It’s available online for free at Crosswalk.com and Christianity.com. (WIN!!!) (**The only downside to this one is that it does not use inclusive language for people and utilizes exclusively masculine pronouns for God.)
So these are a few of my favorites. Feel free to google them and check out the best place to purchase if you like. I will do part two very soon, so stay tuned!
