Review of "A Confident Heart Devotional" by Renee Swope

This week I had the privilege of reading and reviewing "A Confident Heart Devotional: 60 Days to Stop Doubting Yourself" by Renee Swope! This is an awesome devotional, especially for anyone who has ever dealt with negative self talk. Each day contains a key Bible verse, a story or small snippet to read, a prayer and a "I say...." but "God says...". There are 60 days' worth of devotionals to read through and most of them range from 3 to 5 pages.

There is also an index in the back to help you keep track of the key Bible verses and the "I say..." but "God says..." points.

I think my favorite part of the whole book were the "I say..." but "God says..." telling me what God says about the lies I tell myself. How we say that we are not worth loving and God says that we ARE worth loving. Along with each one of God's promises, is a Bible verse showing us where to find it in the Bible.

Essentially, we are speaking God's truth into our lives. Which is so important, especially when we read them aloud. I remember going to a class called "Life Skills" years ago and they often spoke about the importance of doing just that. Reading God's Word aloud helps to eliminate the negative feelings and lies that the world tells us about ourselves, and helps reitterate God's promises to us.

I think this is a wonderful book, and is excellent to read not as just as a devotional! I rate it as 5 stars!

Available November 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a divison of Baker Publishing Group.
