Drawing Near to God

31 Days of Drawing Near to God is a devotional written by Ruth Myers.  In the introduction, Ruth gives her testimony, and let me just say, it is powerful!  I would give the book five stars if her testimony were all that were in it!  She is a devoted woman of God who has allowed her trials to bring her into a deeply wonderful relationship with the Lord.

Each of the thirty-one devotionals is a look at an attribute of God or a specific way He loves us or we can love Him.  It takes about 5-10 minutes to read through each devotional, and she also includes a prayer and some Scripture to read through.  Sometimes I wondered how the Scripture she listed related to the devotional passage, but that is where reflection and meditation on the Word comes in.

As with any devotional or spiritual exercise, you get out what you put in, but if you are looking for an uplifting devotional, 31 Days of Drawing Near to God is a good choice.  You can pick up a copy at Amazon.com or BN.com.

I received this book for free as part of the Blogging for Books program through WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for a fair and honest review.
