Speaking to the Heart

Currently, I'm doing a short devotional from the book by Julie Zine Coleman called Unexpected Love: God'd Heart Revealed in Jesus' Conversations with Women. The book unpacks Biblical encounters between Jesus and several women of the first century revealing His heart for all women. Each chapter ends with suggested Bible readings, devotional prompts and journaling suggestions.

Leading up to Resurrection Sunday, it is a great reflection on the love Jesus had for me, so great that he would lay down his life and call me his friend. The book is available now at online retailers. It is also a good reminder that even when life beats us down, we are daughters of the King and he treasures us.

I was given the book in exchange for an honest review. I encourage you to grab a copy and a mug of coffee and spend nine mornings or evenings basking in His love.
