I am His by Rita Platt
I am His, is an 8-week devotional Bible study book to help women get a deeper sense of the Father’s love, comfort and care for them. There were definitely plenty of scripture verses, personal stories, prayers to pray, and little exercises to fulfill that goal.
Quite a few of the suggested things-to-do were completely new ideas for me. I can’t imagine anyone not being able to at least glean a few choice morsels from this comforting book. Even if you think you have a strong healthy relationship with the Father person of the Godhead, who couldn’t use strengthening in that area? I know I can! I intend to go back to this book several times to make sure I put into practice quite a few of the suggestions.
What was just a little bit bothersome to me, was that it was not clearly laid out in an 8 week format. Oh, there were 8 chapters all right, but it was not clearly divided into a day-by-day reading or thing-to-do. The author could definitely improve this book, if she were to clearly spell out what to read and do in a 5 or 7 day- a- week manner.
Even though it was not divided into daily portions, there was way too much information in there to read the book in one setting. To do that, would be to miss much of its richness. At a minimum, you need at least one day per chapter to benefit from it.
A lot of women go through their wholes lives not getting close to the Father. Oh, they are “in” with Jesus, and even at least a little bit familiar with the Holy Spirit, but sometimes we neglect our relationship with the Father portion of the godhead. Since this is true, if you are a women’s Bible study leader, I recommend this book to introduce this sometimes neglected topic of study to your group.
