Previously released as The Satisfied Heart, 31 Days of Drawing Near to God is aptly subtitled Resting Securely in His Delight. I enjoy the personable way that the author, Ruth Myers shares from her life as well as from the word of God, so I was happy to see this book listed as one of the selection choices for review. With 31 short chapters this book was easily incorporated into my daily devotional time as I learned from this older Titus 2 woman about resting and delighting in the delight God lavishes on His own. I can be so quickly caught up in two the busyness of life as I care for my little ones, feeling so exhausted and overwhelmed, and this particular writing encouraged me to see myself as the Lord sees me. I’m so hard in myself, often seeing only my shortcomings and imperfections, but He sees me as His Bride and Purified one. What humbling compassion!
This book is highly recommended for women of all ages (and men, too!). The writer is engaging, thoughtful, refreshing, and gracious. The theology and teachings are sound and honoring to the word and glory of God. She and her late husband served in Asia with the Navigators and she now resides stateside in Colorado.
