Book Review: God's Promises for Tough Times by Jen Sheppard

I collect devotional books. God's Promises for Tough Times is the newest addition to my collection. It's an easy & encouraging read! There are 34 devotionals in the book. It covers various promises of God about different issues such as peace, patience, treasure, rest, prayers, fear, faith, love, grace, trust, worry, comfort, and more. The author is realistic and insightful. She offers hope and encouragement from God's truths. Each devotional is short and concise. She gets to the point; there's no sugarcoating. I really appreciate her Biblically sound messages. At the end of the book, you'll find a great list of comforting Bible references for life's problems such as Afraid, Anxious, Depressed, Discouraged, Grieving, Lonely, Anger, Envy, Temptation, etc. I'm glad she also warns readers about the false gospel of the "Word of Faith Movement". She encourages readers to trust God totally, rely on Him completely, and rest peacefully in His presence, power & promises. God cares. God understands. God loves you. God is with you and for you always. Are you going through tough times or do you know someone who is? Check this devotional out and rediscover the beauty of God's promises!
