Devotions for Life

New Ideas from Old Ways

Author(s): Bruce C. Swaffield

Book Description

All of us wrestle with the trials and difficulties of life. Everywhere we turn these days there seems to be frustration, heartache, and disappointment. We want to know how to persevere when we face adverse situations that constantly threaten to knock us down. This collection of devotions will help you build your faith and strengthen your trust in God. You will discover dynamic new ways for dealing with the same old problems.

There are hundreds of inspirational meditations that can be read individually, in series, or randomly. Each one is based on parables, lessons, and scriptures from the Old and New Testaments. You will be able to relate to these stories because the author has written out of his own experiences. In fact, many of the devotions were composed as he was dealing with personal obstacles.

The 12 chapters are divided into common themes and will help you in all areas of your life: Facing Fear, Disappointment, or Anxiety; Suffering Trials, Pain, and Difficulties; Growing in Patience, Love, and Understanding; Letting Go of the Past or Present; Feeling Insecure, Lost, or Alone; Needing Peace, Strength, and Protection; Changing Ourselves and Our Lives; Seeking Forgiveness and Wholeness; Following God’s Purpose, Will, and Direction; Being More Thankful and Grateful; Looking for Renewal, Help, or Hope; and Increasing in Service, Faith, and Trust.

Throughout the book, you will discern practical values found in the Bible and learn how to apply the principles to your own life. As a result, you will gain a deeper appreciation of God’s word while, at the same time, understand how scripture can enable you to overcome your daily struggles.
