Do you ever feel like life is moving so fast it's about to spin out of control? Do you rush off to work or to take the kids to school every day, plow through your never-ending daily tasks, dash home in time to make a quick dinner and clean up, and then stay busy until you fall, exhausted, into bed? If this sounds like your routine and you're feeling like you're missing something in the midst of all this activity, the devotionals in this book are for you. Each one will help you slow down, reflect on God's goodness, and find peace, refreshment, and energy for tomorrow. Looking Back, Looking Up includes 150 devotionals, enough for almost six months of daily readings-and each offers a fresh view of God. You'll travel from the prairies of North Dakota to the Andes Mountains and beyond and get a glimpse of the combination of suffering and blessing experienced along this journey with God. You'll meet people-all very different-whose lives display God's glory and care. And your faith will be strengthened as you share the author's experiences, thoughts, and insights. Most of all, your view of God will be enlarged as you reflect on all He does in the lives of those who love Him. Meet our Creator and Redeemer in the garden, at the cross, in a battered vessel, or in the image of fellow travelers, and see His goodness and faithfulness in new ways. Slow down, settle in, and get to know God better.
