This lovely new devotional from Philippa Ruth Wilson focuses on just a 5 word Bible verse each day, "Little Nuggets of Glory," as she describes them, for those who are going through troubled times.
The devotions in this book are short, encouraging, and a reminder of the light when everything seems dark. Philippa Wilson has begun each chapter with a five–word Bible phrase that is easily memorised and ended with a prayer. Beautiful illustrations by Rebekah Lesan make this an ideal book to give to friends who are struggling.
It’s a wonderful book! I am partway through it and have felt it to be extremely encouraging! Philippa writes so beautifully about what the Bible says about God’s never–stopping, never–giving–up love, how He sent Jesus to show us the depth of that love and forgive us and bless us more than we could have ever hoped. She takes eternal truths from the Bible and breaks them down in to small, bite–sized, 5–word phrases that I could even teach my kids! She seeks to apply these truths in life’s difficulties, and she writes in a very tangible way that helps me apply these truths to my own life. I have been encouraged to grow in my faith, to believe that it’s not about what I can do for God, but it’s about what God has done for the whole world, and for me, and how He has done, is doing, and will do everything necessary to secure my deepest joy in Jesus, both now and forever, even in the midst of trials and suffering in this life. There are a month’s worth of daily devotionals, plus some extra material. I know you will be blessed by it. Buy one, or buy lots! They’re a nice size and great to have on your bedside table, and to give away to friends.
A great concept of focussing on short, five word, passages of scripture. For those who are in a deep pit the shortness of the verses means they are easy to meditate on, and the inclusion of a prayer and complementary hymn was a real tonic.
This is a lovely book to read – a gentle reminder of our dependence on God and his great love for us. It is a book that nourishes with a short reflection on a bible verse, some words from a hymn and a prayer to help us, too. Thank you.
