Right away, Fixing My Eyes on Jesus by Anne Graham Lotz grabbed my attention. One of my prayers is to fix my eyes on Jesus, to see and seek Him alone. This is a year-long devotional. One short devotional entry for each day of the year.
The devotional for each day starts out with a Bible verse. Then a short, encouraging devotional that helps you focus on Jesus. Usually there's a practical application for you to think about your own life and see how you can seek God.
As a busy mom, I find this devotional e-book perfect for me. It is short and helps me keep thinking about what I have just read throughout my day. Many times the day that I read encouraged me. Lotz doesn't include a short prayer at the end but it is easy to add that yourself. I usually pray and ask God to help me or to thank Him for being God and loving me.
I started reading this from mid-April to now (May 16). My favorite entry was from May 10. I will share with you a short excerpt.
Is God Looking for You?
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.
God is looking for a few good men and women. Men and women who are willing to go against the current of popular opinion, to hold firm convictions in a world where "anything goes," to speak the truth when it's not politically correct, and to walk with God when everyone else is running away from Him.
God is looking for those who believe that what He says is more important than what anyone else says. He's looking for people who know that what He thinks is more important than what anyone else thinks and that what He wants is more important than what anyone else wants. God is looking for those who believe His will is more important than their own....there's more but you'll need to get your own copy.
