As my daughter is nearing her eighth birthday in only a few more months, I’d been seeking age appropriate resources to help guide and grow her faith in the Lord. She’s getting older and more childish things seem to be passing away in her life. She’s beginning to ask a lot of questions and thinking about what her purpose in life could be.
My search however was proving a bit difficult with most books and magazines being geared more toward older pre-teenagers. Things like boyfriends, cellphones, and fashion which most other devotions are filled with didn’t really fit her criteria.However after I came acrossThe Plans I have For You Devotionaland Journal set by ZonderKidz my search ended!
The hardcover 160 page devotional is meant to be gone through over the span of 90 days. It’s based upon the Bible verse Jeremiah 29:11 ” For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”. There are six sectors; I’ve Got Big Plans For You, I’ve Given You a Purpose, I Don’t Do Small Things, There’s Nothing You Can’t Do, Find That One Thing, & What I Created You To Do. Each sector focuses on something different that all ties together beautifully.
The illustrations throughout the book are awesome! The text and devotions give one something to think about. There is always a Bible verse for each day and questions to go along with each devotion if you pick up the corresponding journal. My daughter has seemed to enjoy this devotional and feels that it appeals perfectly to girls around her age. I personally think it’s wonderful that it is not overwhelming to her. She’ll pick it up all on her own and really contemplate and share her thoughts whether with me or in the journal. It’s growth in her walk that I am so very proud of!
This devotion overall guides the reader through their present each day and encourages them to look to the future in discovering God’s purpose for their life. In turn, they will find peace, security, and the love and acceptance that we only can receive from the Lord. I highly recommend getting the journal and the devotional together!
