Too Blessed to be Stressed Inspiration for Every Day is a small daily dose that challenges one to look on the brighter side of life. Written in a way that speaks directly to the reader, it’s like the author becomes your best new pal who’s primary goal is affirming how much our Papa God loves us! The days can be dark but this little book will get one looking to the light and finding the joy in our everyday moments.
In having a very rough year myself, this book has become a breath of fresh air to fall upon during my day. It has just enough in each devotion to put my mind in the right place in the morning. It’s a simple boost of God’s goodness, so to speak. I know some say they take 15 or more minutes in the morning to read and pray to start their day but some of us just don’t have that amount of allotted alone time ( especially with little ones in the home).
In the introduction, the author mentions and jokes how specific titles she’s written have become bathroom books and often men have picked one up to read just because it was there. With that being said, this book like those offers a practical prayer that can be applied to the lives of not just women but men too. The introduction most certainly lets you know what you are in store for when it comes to this authors writing/storytelling and sense of humor.
Each devotion features the date, a title, Bible verse of inspiration, a short story, and prayer/thought to apply to our lives on that set date. There’s a ribbon bookmark bound into the book to keep ones place until the next reading. The back of the book features a scripture index that list scripture used in the devotional alphabetically by each book found in the Bible. I like that the book isn’t too big. It fits nicely on my bedside table but also would be a good fit for a bathroom shelf, office desk, or in a living room dedicated space for books to be intended to read daily.
This has been a nice devotional to get me going each morning. I think it would make a fantastic gift for a girlfriend or family member that needs that extra boost of God’s goodness throughout the day too. One of my goals for the new year was to be more joyful and not sweat the things I can’t control. This book is helping me keep that mindset. I certainly do recommend it!
