Have you ever read a book that not only sets your soul on fire but also tickles your taste buds? Nope? Then you need to get yourself a copy of Savor. It is unique in the sense that the author combines her love for food, with the word of God and her personal experiences. Reading this daily devotional, kinda made me feel like I was having breakfast with my bestie…EVERY MORNING! I promise you, quiet time was never this lit!
In her book, Shauna Niequist encourages us to really be present in the now! To savor the goodness of this moment and enjoying the pleasures of today! She challenges the reader to identify God’s holy fingerprints in our everyday situations… causing us to become aware of His presence.
Many times we find ourselves living on the sidelines of our own lives. Or is it just me? I was on this “gurrrrl get yo life” mission when this book confronted me with so many truths that had me questioning my motives, and doing so… allowing the Holy Spirit to redirect my path. It’s weird how we only celebrate and feel “happy” when we have accomplished something. Once we think we have arrived! All the while we look pass the small celebrate-worthy moments in life! This book has given me so much appreciation for life, MY LIFE! And I’m totally nuts about the tag line “living abundantly where you are, as you are”. So yes, u guessed it… you don’t need to work your dream job to be happy!! It’s all about enjoying your journey and not letting life pass you by.
Whenever I’m on a book, it goes all over with me. Hence the cover is a bit dirty seeing that it is covered with fabric and meant for your bedside table as a daily devotional to be used during your quiet time. Last week I took mine to work to read during lunch time and guess what… It got stolen!! Like in for real, it was gone! That is how awesome and pretty it really is. The good news is, I got it back and I invited the perpetrator to take part in my very first GIVEAWAY and stand a chance to win a copy of SAVOR!
