Do you ever struggle to feel loved? I know I have, whether it is my own insecurity or guilt that plagues me as young women I struggled to feel loved by God. Maybe you know what I am talking about because this is something that you have struggled with yourself. Or perhaps you have thought of God as some ruler maker in the sky that is keeping a list of those who are naughty and nice like Santa Claus. However, this could not be any farther from the truth. God not only loves us, He is love.
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. – 1 John 4:8 ESV
Do you truly deep down in your bones beyond a shadow of a doubt know that Jesus loves you? Sometimes it is difficult for us to comprehend the great love of God, and if this is something that you have ever wrestled with then the new Zondervan devotion by Lindsay A. Franklin entitled, Adored – 365 Devotions for Young Women is the perfect devotion for you.
The King of the Universe adores you! #Adored
The fact is, God doesn’t just love us. He adores us. And maybe we struggle to understand that because we look in the mirror and wonder why the great big God of the Universe would look at us and think, “Yes. She is my adored, beloved daughter.” But make no mistake: no matter what our insecurities try to tell us, God does delight in us, his beatiful creations. – from the introduction of Adored
I fell in love with this book from the moment I saw it from the deep rich blue dreamy cover to the beautifully designed devotional pages within. It is a hardbound book that can easily fit into your backpack or sit out on your nightstand. There are 365 days worth of devotions, and they are not dated so you can start whenever you like and work your way through. There is room at the bottom of each page to record a note, a response, or a prayer.
Each daily devotional is focused on God’s great love for us coupled with a short scripture memory verse and a daily devotional that address the ups and downs of everyday life but also explores profound spiritual truths. Adored addresses difficult topics that girls face like self-worth, bullying, social media, friendships, and dating. The overarching theme of this devotion is to show girls and young women how greatly loved and adored they are by the King of the Universe.
This is wonderful little devotional is out just in time for the holidays and would make the perfect gift or stock stuffer for any young woman in your life!
