Wisdom for Life – Book Review

Are you like me? We buy a book of devotionals that looks like it is exactly what we need and four or five days in we give up and find something new to read because it wasn’t what we thought it was. I found Wisdom for Life by Gail Purath to be exactly what I needed and wanted.

If you want to gain a deeper understanding of the Psalms and Proverbs this collection of 100, 1-Minute readings, gives direction on how to use Biblical principles to direct daily life.

If you’re dealing with discouragement, depression, or discontent you will find how the psalmist dealt with these tough issues. Are you wanting a more joy-filled, positive outlook? You’ll find some answers here. Have you wondered how to praise our God more effectively? She gives some excellent suggestions on how to give thanks in the mundane activities of daily life.

I love her style! When an issue is important to understand how the Holy Words apply to our life she wastes no time in explaining the errors in our thinking. Many of these very short, daily writings spoke to me about the people and this crazy world around me. Each devotion ends with a short section that helps us dig into the subject more deeply and use it more effectively in our own life situations.

This book will be available for you to read on February 21, 2023. You can pre-purchase it here (Wisdom for Life). It is definitely worth your time!

Sunday Psalms – 11

Psalm 11

I will hide in my GOD.

He gives me safety from the evil around me.

He is everywhere watching and seeing everything.

He tests the righteous and the evil.

Because He is righteous, He loves those who make the right choices and they will see Him.

Cookies and Cheddar – Food Friday

It’s a cloudy, cold, winter day in Northwest Ohio. Perfect for comfort food and baking cookies. My sister gave me this recipe and it is yummy. I’m always on the lookout for recipes that do not have wheat, milk, or refined sugar. It’s a personal commitment to my own health. Give it a try!

If you choose to eat the cookies first that’s OK by me. I often wonder why we save the best for last. (?) Here’s an easy and yummy dinner recipe. It’s good as both a main dish and a side dish. Once again, it’s healthy and good for you.

Add a slice of ham and a nice, healthy baby spinach and strawberry salad with a balsamic splash and you have a meal fit for a king. Yummo!

This post is shared at Food Friday 16 Linky Party. I hope you’ll jump over and check out some really yummy recipes.

Sunday Psalms 10

Psalm 10

Father, why do You hide from Your people? Evil is everywhere. Seize those who are scheming and dishonest, prideful, saying there is no God. Why do You let people prosper who curse You, are dishonest, arrogant, deceitful, oppressive, full of lies, sinners, murderers of the helpless and innocent? Why do You let them think You don’t see them?

Father, we need You to act! You see everything. Stop the evil! Take control!

Other nations will die out, but You are the Alpha and Omega! You will always be King!

I know You hear. Strengthen us! Let Your law and justice rule our land and this (Your) World!

Come join us at Grammy’s Grid Food Friday (one of my favorite linky parties). This recipe is one of my easiest, favorite meals. My hubby, Ray, likes it served with peanut butter sandwiches. You can find more ideas for meals and recipes on the Dinner 4 2 page.
