Exciting News!

This week, instead of my usual post, I want to announce some exciting news for those who have not yet heard. For over a year, I’ve been working on writing and publishing my first book and I’m delighted to say it will be available within the next week or two! The title is Rivers of Living Water – A Devotional Journey to Intimacy with GodIt is a daily devotional, 428 pages in length, and is published by West Bow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Publishing.

The daily readings were taken from several of my personal journals that include Scripture meditations and prayers, and God’s responses back to me. It is filled with words of encouragement, comfort, and gentle correction that can apply to any believer, regardless of age, gender, or whatever stage you are at in your personal walk with God. I believe this book will inspire you to go deeper in intimacy in your own relationship with Him.

This book is the fulfillment of a life long dream I’ve had. I am so grateful for the Lord’s grace to enable me to accomplish it. I am also thankful for those who prayed for and encouraged me along the way. In addition, I am greatly appreciative for my wonderful husband, who believed in and supported me throughout the process.

I’ve included an excerpt below to give you an idea of what the book contains. It will be available to order through the website of West Bow Press, my own personal website (coming soon), and any retail book store. I will post further details on how to order once it is available. I encourage you to get a copy, give some to friends/family (Christmas will be here soon!), and share it with friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors, etc. And I would love to hear your feedback as well!

Day 52

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, mayRivers of Living Water cover give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better. –Ephesians 1:17

Thank You for the spirit of wisdom and revelation, Lord. I ask You to pour it out on me, saturate me in it so I can have full knowledge of You, for You are the one great desire of my heart and I want to know You more.

Yes, My beloved child, and you shall indeed know Me more as you continue asking and seeking My face. It is My great delight to reveal more of Myself, for being sought and pursued by My children gives Me such great pleasure. My heart is ravished with the simple reach of a heart towards Me, though many see their efforts as weak and feeble. My passion for those who are Mine is so much greater than you are able to comprehend, but you will have all of eternity to discover and plumb the depths of it! I will give more to all who continue to ask, to seek, and to knock, for I reward all who diligently seek Me. You will surely find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.
