I love devotionals! I have several of them that I use for my daily reading. They’re the perfect way to jump start my day and reflect on God’s will for my life. They also address the everyday problems we all face by covering an array of of topics. A sampling of addressed topics usually include reclaiming your share of joy when you’re feeling angry and discovering a new perspective when you’re feeling a tinge of jealousy to turning stress into serenity and gaining clarity when you’re feeling distracted.
For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards the paths of justice, And preserves the way of His saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, Equity and every good path. – Proverbs 2:6-9
That’s why I believe it’s as just as important for children to implement devotionals in their daily lives as well. The purpose of devotionals like The Plans I Have For You Devotional is help children have the desire to seek God’s heart on a daily basis. The Plans I Have For You Devotional is a 90-day devotional that’s wonderfully illustrated, inspirational, and has varying fonts to captivate the attention of young readers from 8 – 12.
It’s broken down into 6 different sectors: I’ve Got Big Plans for You!, I’ve Given You a Purpose, I Don’t Do Things Small, There’s Nothing You Can’t Do, Find That One Thing, and What I Created You to Do. Each sector shows how them how God has a plan and a purpose for everyone of us. The accompanying journal will also help encourage children, while also giving them the opportunity to express themselves. Overall, my son is very pleased with these books, and have been using them everyday!
