Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Women

Angie here with my suggestion for your first devotional of 2010 is Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Women.

Why?

It's all about comfort, encouragement, and inspiration. It's so easy to be battered and broken in today's world. We all need to start the day with an encouraging, inspiring word. It builds confidence and courage in the face of all our problems.

It's broken into sections on different topics like faith, motherhood, relationships, illness, parenting... need I say more? :-)

I like the short stories, but I really like the short prayers. I've found several over the last few days that have really been exactly what I needed. I'll share one with you now and then you can look for others in your copy.

Here's quoting from page 25 in the Faith section:
Dear Lord,
help me to understand the troubles and triumphs you put before me. Remind me to throw down my sorrows unto you... because you are the only one capable of catching them. Lead me back to you when I have gone astray. Draw me closer to your love and take me under your wing.
Amen

I don't know about you, but I sure needed that rich prayer :-)
Angie
