At the Feet of Jesus: Daily Devotions to Nurture a Mary Heart - Blog Tour

If you are anything like me, you have purchased many devotional books throughout your lifetime.  I am constantly on the look out for these books to help me with my walk with God.  Most of the time I will use one for a week or so before placing it on the bookshelf next to the other books that just don't fit into my life. 

I have, over the years, found a few that seem to inspire me.  These are the ones that fit my life and speak directly to me on a regular basis.  I particularly enjoy the devo's that make me want to write a little note about how it touched me in some way.  Many times the passages slapped me more than touched me.  I have one devotional book that has so many notes, from several years, in the margins that I have no room to add my current thoughts.  I think the thing I enjoy most is reading something that I have written from a previous year that I feel like I finally obtained victory over that struggle.

At the Feet of Jesus:  Daily Devotions to Nurture a Mary Heart by Joanna Weaver, already has notes on several of the pages.  This is a one of those rare devotionals that I will find myself using for several years.  I wish that they had left more room for notes and thoughts at the bottom of each page, especially since they ask such thought provoking questions. 

My husband accuses me of being a Martha.  I work in a church and at times become overwhelmed with the "business" side and forget to be still.  This devotional speaks to me directly and offers me guidance.  I need to be still and listen to God.

Because this book is a daily reader, it will be the first book that I have not read entirely before posting the review.   I am very confident that this book will be covered in notes, as I have skipped around reading different dates.  I highly recommend this book to my readers that struggle to find a good devotional.
