Day by Day Through the Gospel of John Book Review

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Day by Day Through the Gospel of John is a compilation of 365 devotions and meditations written in the second half of the nineteenth century by Charles Spurgeon, Alexander Maclaren, Joseph Parker, Hudson Taylor and others, edited by Lance Wubbels.

These meditations of insights go verse by verse through the gospel of John. While not all of the verses in John are covered in Day by Day Through the Gospel of John, most are. Some of the verses are covered by several authors.

As with any compilation, there were some authors’ styles I resonated with more than others. One thing which could be said for each devotion, regardless who wrote it, is the meditations in Day by Day Through the Gospel of John are not light or quick reads. Each of the devotions requires the reader invest thoughtfulness into the reading.

You’ve Got This Book Review

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

You’ve Got This (because God’s got you) by KariAnne Wood is a tiny book filled with 52 powerful devotions full of scripture, short stories, and prayers written to uplift and encourage.

Just my kind of book.

In her devotion titled, “Hello Goliath”, KariAnne tells of a time her son’s baseball team was scoreless until he hit a home run. She emphasized the fact baseball “seeds” planted over years of games led to that particular harvest.

What I appreciated from this particular devotion, is the following:

Sometimes the harvest isn’t for us. Sometimes we sow seeds, not knowing if they’ll ever grow … sometimes we never see the seeds bloom. But that doesn’t mean we stop planting. We simply need to plant and water and nurture our seeds in the soil of today.

And trust in the god who’s got tomorrow.

 

If you could use a bit of daily encouragement, and who couldn’t? then pick up You’ve Got This (because God’s got you).
