He Holds My Hand: Experiencing God’s Presence And Protection – Book Review
Have you ever received an out-of-the-blue phone call that would forever change the course of your life?
Carol Kent knows what that’s like. Several years ago, she and her husband were awakened in the middle of the night with the news that their only son – a US Naval Academy graduate who had never been in trouble with the law – had been arrested for murdering his wife’s ex-husband.
As you can imagine, disbelief, shock, and grief consumed Carol and her family as they tried to make sense of what had happened. As Carol tried to lean on the Lord for comfort and rely on His guidance during this difficult time, she began to listen for His voice in a new way. She began to meditate on Scripture and to write down the words that she believed He was saying to her as prayers over her life. During this process, she began to experience greater intimacy with the Father than she had ever known.
It was out of this trial – the trial of watching her beloved son sentenced to life in prison, yet choosing to trust in God and draw closer to Him in spite of the emotional turmoil that she experienced – that He Holds My Hand: Experiencing God’s Presence And Protection was born.
He Holds My Hand contains 365 dated devotions that open with an inspirational quote, a themed devotion that is written as if God was speaking words of comfort and protection directly over you, and a Scripture to meditate upon.
He Holds My Hand has something encouraging to say to each and every one of us as we go through our daily trials. If you’re looking for a devotional that will help you to experience the love of God in highly personal way, I recommend this devotional to you!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
