Winfred, the author, has written a series of daily devotionals which are intended to draw the reader to the "Near Side" of God. He has taken every day events and placed them alongside spiritual truths to make for a compelling reading. His application of truth is plain and simple and calls for a closer walk with the Heavenly Father. His approach is an ideal way to see in daily situations a way in which the Father's plan unfolds. His heart is for each Christian to have a daily quite time; and in doing so, each day can become a tranquil voice heard above the din of noise the world generates.
David Fisher--Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church Haynesville, Georgia
Is a daily quiet time that important? I would say, "Yes, it is." We are taught in the scriptures the significance of drawing near to God. Every day becomes an opportunity to have an intimate time with the Lord. Whether it be in the morning, at noonday, or at night, each moment is a turning point to heed the call of the Holy Spirit to come into the presence of the Lord. In the "Near Side" daily devotional, each day is spelled out with a challenge to take a look at life and see God in the minute details. He has a plan and purpose for life, and He invites us to come boldly but humbly before His throne of grace and find help in time of need. Join me in the journey that will take us through an entire year of encouragement and sustainment.
