AT THE FEET OF JESUS by Joanna Weaver


You were made for more than serving God; you were made to know Him.

Intimacy with God-to know Him and be known by Him. It is what our hearts desperately need, but somehow life conspires to keep us busy and distracted.

For anyone who struggles when it comes to daily devotions, At the Feet of Jesus extends an irresistible invitation to set aside your duties and find the amazing peace and incredible joy that come from time alone with Him. Drawn from Joanna Weaver's beloved Bethany trilogy, each reading in this 365-day devotional includes a Bible reading passage and reflection question. All-new material and "Going Deeper" sidebars are also woven throughout.

Discover for yourself the riches that come from spending a portion of each day alone with God. At the feet of Jesus-where true life begins!

Includes a unique One-Year Bible Reading Guide.

I don't know about you but my life get incredibly insane sometimes. Take for instance this week. I was scheduled to write my review on this book a couple of days ago but do to circumstances out of my control I had to reschedule my post. 

One of the things I like about devotionals is they allow me to slow down for a couple of minutes and take a breath, pause and reflect on the wonderful things and aspects of God. 

Joanna Weaver has written such a devotional. At the Feet of Jesus: Daily Devotions to Nurture a Mary Heart. Take today's devotional reading for instance: the first verse is: "Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep." Luke 15:6. Then she takes a page from one of her books she has written, and for today it is from Lazarus Awakening. You will have to read November 1 to know what it says. Then there is some verses to read and a something to reflect on. This days' is "What does it mean to you to realize that Jesus would leave the many to find the one who is lost?"

What a thought to reflect on! Now throughout my hectic day that question will go through my mind and allow me to give thanks to the Great Shepherd who found me and give more thanks to the sheep He will find today.

One of the things I really enjoy about this devotional is it's simplicity; yet at the same time the questions posed at the end of each one allows for deep thought throughout my busy day. 

Just as in her Bible studies, Joanna Weaver has done an outstanding job in putting this devotional together. Her style of writing makes for easy reading and her heart for Jesus is poured out in this book. Her desire for women to truly have a Mary heart in a Martha world is evident in this devotional. 

I would recommend this devotional to all women who need to take a breath, stop and reflect on the saving grace of our Lord. That includes me!
