To You; Love, God: A Year of Daily Guidance and Inspiration Straight from the Source, by Will Bowen, is a different type of devotional. It is a 365 day devotional which is like many, however, the main difference is that Bowen has taken the liberty, not saying that’s bad, of writing a love letter from God to us. So, what if we woke up to a daily love letter from God which encourages us through the difficulties of life. That’s the premise of this book.
The book is an easy to read book. It is written in a very poetic manner which should helps bring hope and encouragement to the reader. The book is written in 12 themes. Each month has a different theme. The twelve themes are:
January - Awaken,
February - Love,
March - Release,
April - Believe,
May - Do,
June - Transform,
July - Intend,
August - Transcend,
September - Cultivate,
October - Flow,
November - Appreciate, and
December - Flourish.
The main criticisms are the fact that the subtitle suggests the inspiration is straight from the source. The source must be God. I can see how the book inspired the author to write this. Yes, maybe that’s a little nit-picky, but it bothered me. The other comment is that the devotion does not include scripture. I think it’s a great devotion, with great thought, but to add scripture to help the reader see where the encouragement is found in the Bible would have been great.
Nonetheless, this is an excellent devotional.
