Embraced: 100 Devotions To Know God Is Holding You Close – Book Review
When certain women speak, I pause and listen to what they have to say, as their words always seem to resonate truth and bring clarity to the parched places within my soul.
Lysa TerKeurst is one of those women who have helped to light my way, and her latest book, Embraced: 100 Devotions To Know God Is Holding You Close offers us new ways to connect with God and His Word as we surrender our daily struggles, doubts, and insecurities to our loving and merciful God.
Embraced is a beautiful book to give and receive – the cool aqua theme carries through the entire book. The devotions are divided into four sections:
- Embracing the Pursuit of Him and His Direction
- Embracing the Fullness Found Only In Him
- Embracing Him In The Midst Of Hurt & Heartbreak
- Embracing His Call To Be Transformed
Lysa’s devotions follow the standard format of a Scripture to meditate upon, the devotion itself, and a prayer, but what makes them so special are that each devotion contains a personal, relatable story from her life that exemplifies her ability to connect with her readers and to relate her struggles and ours with the life-changing love and grace that God offers us through His Word.
She also includes 31 verses at the end of Embraced that you can and will want to personalize and make your very own!
If you’ve never read any of Lysa’s books, Embraced is a great place to start. If you are a fan of Lysa’s or a devotionals, you will definitely want to add Embraced to your collection.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
