Today, I want to share one of my favorite resources when you’re in a season of suffering.
I’m forever grateful to friends and family who shared books and resources with me. I had no idea what to expect in grieving or single parenting or helping kids navigate their own grief. I suddenly had a voracious need for books that could speak to our situation. I didn’t want candy-coated platitudes. I needed two things: the truth of God’s Word and the testimonies of others who had walked through suffering and could declare that God’s promises are true.
Enter Streams in the Desert. A dear friend gave me this book because it had been such comfort to her family in their own time of deep suffering. Isn’t that how it should work? To pass on to someone else the comfort that has so helped us?
Streams in the Desert is a 365-day devotional mix of prayers, Christian writings and promises from God. Every year, it continues to be one of the best-selling devotionals. I think this book speaks to so many because it was written from a place of suffering to the person walking through suffering. It’s chock-full of scripture, poems and application that provide solid hope and encouragement “in the barren wilderness” of need.
So I’d like to bless one of you with a new copy of this devotional. I’m giving away one new hardback, updated edition of Streams in the Desert. You can enter two ways: 1) by commenting on this post and 2) by commenting or liking the Facebook post about this book. Enter both ways and you’ll have two entries. 🙂
