When I was a teen I watched a Christian television program called the 700 Club with my mom. I always loved listening to Sheila Walsh speak with such compassion and encouragement.
When I struggled through infertility, Sheila’s book, Life Is Tough, But God Is Faithful: How to See God’s Love in Difficult Times helped me through that rough time in my life.
I’ve read a lot of short devotionals and found many of them aren’t deep enough to leave a lasting impact. 5 Minutes With Jesus: Peace For Today, was just what I hoped it would be: profound and deeply encouraging!
This book is well made with a heavy cardboard cover and thick pages inside. The design is lovely with the same border on the cover throughout the pages in the book.
Each devotion begins with a brief story or thought on a Bible passage, followed by a powerful quote. The scriptures at the end use several Bible translations that I thought added to the devotion and made me want to dig deeper.
Sometimes the daily busyness of life can rob our peace. These external peace robbers can be the daily stress of raising children, bills to pay, jobs to maintain, deadlines to meet, chores to do. They can also be internal peace-robbers like fear, bitterness and exhaustion.
These devotions are geared to give you some peace in your daily life.
“Jesus want us to know peace, to receive the gift of peace He has for us, to live with “peace of mind and heart. The key to knowing Jesus’ peace is spending time in His Word.”
I am leaving with you a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27
After reading Peace for Today, I would love to read the other 5 Minute Devotionals she’s written including,
5 Minutes With Jesus: Making Today Matter and 5 Minutes With Jesus: A Fresh Infusion of Joy
How about you? What are your external and internal peace robbers?
