Trusting God by Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith, Mary Southerland
This is a thoughtful and interesting book written by three women as a devotional and bible study. The authors are Girlfriends in God. They share stories from their lives openly in an engaging and conversational way. Almost like talking with your girlfriends. Their stories tell you about who and what they are about, and more importantly, about the One they trust.
In a twelve week format, each week has five devotionals that start with a truth from scripture, then a short thoughtful devotion, and ends with a prayer. The sixth day is the bible study part. There are questions for reflection and space to write your own thoughts and insights. The devotions seem light and easy reads until you get to the questions the Girlfriends in God ask. The reflections of day six are, at least for this reader, heavy-duty, thought-provoking, sometimes very difficult questions to ponder.
I found the devotions were short enough to read in just a few minutes yet left me with much to think about; where I have been, where I am, and where I want to be in my experience of trusting God. And as I said, the study part takes some work. Work worth doing.
The book can be read simply as a devotional or you can include the sixth day “Now It’s Your Turn” as a bible study. However you decide to use Trusting God, as a personal time with God, sharing with a friend or prayer partner, or in a small group study you will learn a lot about yourself and why you can trust God.
Trusting God was sent to me free of charge by Waterbrook Multnomahin exchange for this review.
