31 Days of Drawing Near to God by Ruth Myers
In each of the thirty-one devotionals, Ruth Myers both reveals herself and reveals God. She had refreshing authenticity and wisely chose to tell about herself at the very beginning of the book to connect herself to her readers. She succeeded.
As I was reading this book, it felt “rich” with wisdom. The author truly knew the Lord, not just about the Lord, and this fact shown through brightly. She also did not have a “bed of roses” life which also made this book “rich” with experience.
It was not at all about performing for God or about earning His love. Instead it was about, resting securely in His delight—as the subtitle says—or resting securely in His love.
I loved every prayer she included and read every single one out loud as my own. I also looked up every scripture verse recommended and I would recommend that any other reader do the same. Those two things greatly enriched the experience—the experience with God.
I felt like I would have really liked Ruth Myers if I had ever had the chance to meet her and felt led to look her up online. I was greatly saddened to learn of her passing from this earth just a few months ago. Such a loss for earth and such a gain for heaven. I truly thank God that much of her godly wisdom is preserved in her earthly literary contributions. I am going to purchase some of her other works.
