Hope Your Heart Needs – Book Review

I am a total fan of Holley Gerth’s work.  Her writing is always spot on for what I need.  Her new devotional is no exception.  There are 52 delightful and encouraging short stories about life and one of God’s many names with a verse and prayer to match.

This small sized book (It fits in my purse!) is jam-packed with just enough theology, just enough humanness, just enough transparency, and just enough of life’s joy, triumph, sorrow, and pain.

5 Favorite Quotes from Hope Your Heart Needs:

  • …rest is not simply the lack of activity but the presence of trust, because trust is a kind of inner leaning, an intentional reliance on someone else. pp. 209
  • Bread of Life, You are the only one who can satisfy the hunger in our lives. pp. 23
  • …He has specific assignments for us during our time on earth… They are original and only for us. pp. 71
  • Faith is not about what we want to happen; it’s about Who we’re trusting in no matter what the future holds. pp. 85
  • When we find our refuge in God, we can be who we are, do what we’re called to do, live without shame and guilt and fear.

And now,  I will go back and read the whole book again.  This time, one day at a time, savoring, sharing, and sensing the life-giving words on these pages.

Thank-you, Holley Gerth!  What a blessing this has been!
