Each page of this book is a snapshot of life stories that have impacted a Christian woman. Robyn Bradley is a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, friend and Bible study group leader and mentor. She grew up in suburban Sydney, taught at various country schools in NSW, married and acquired four sons and a foster daughter who, in due course, married and provided her with a number of delightful grandchildren.
From this background of life experiences (hers and others) she has written how God has been her guide and sustainer through life. Taking each day of the year, with a few special days added, she starts with a Bible verse and takes the reader into a different facet of life as a Christian. The joys, the struggles, the highs and the lows are laid out for the encouragement of those who read. Within each of these experiences, Robyn shows how the faithfulness of God is paramount in his dealings with believers.
Robyn encourages her reader to trust in a mighty God who has provided salvation through Jesus Christ and, by his Holy Spirit, enables the believer to live a godly life.
The Christian life is not a monotone of any one feeling or emotion, but is a kaleidoscope of experiences, overlayed with the certainty of God’s love, forgiveness and constant guidance. Robyn has captured many of the situations that we all face and, in ways that are both thoughtful and provocative, challenges us not to give up but to continue to grow our faith in God.
While written by a woman for women, these daily devotions are neither gender nor age specific but will be an encouragement to all, men and women, young and old, to recognise that their times are also in the hand of God for he alone offers eternal hope.
