Praying and Loving God’s Word Everyday

I love to study God’s Word. The Bible is so dear to me. I want my relationship with the Lord to grow daily as I journey through life.

Along with the Bible, I have a few other books that are so important in my life and I want to share them with you.

First, my little black book. I carry it with me in my purse.


As I’m asked to pray for someone or if I see a need, I record those names in my little black book. Then, during my devotional time, I lift them up in prayer. Prayer is the best gift you can give anyone! If I’m having an extremely busy day, I lift the whole book up in the air to the Lord and ask him to bless the names in the book.


I also love my JUMBO CROSSWORD PUZZLE book! I try to work a Puzzle everyday. It challenges me to learn Bible verses. I bought it at Wal-Mart for $3.98.


My very favorite devotional book is MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST by Oswald Chambers. I’ve read it over and over for years and journaled in it since 2004.


These books just enhance my devotional life, as I have my quiet time in the morning. I study my Bible and then I use these three books. It has become a habit! When my quiet time is finished, I always feel refreshed and loved by God. I’m ready to face the day knowing God is in control and will guide me. It doesn't get any better than this! Got to go—I have a meeting with my Lord! “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” James 4:8

  1. Those are all great books. Especially the Bible, of course. My Utmost is one of my favorite too. I think you gave me my first copy in college. Keep me on top of that prayer list! I love you Mom.
