For years, the Daily Guideposts has been a fountain of spiritual aid and inspiration. The 2015 edition continues the long-standing tradition of offering up a daily dose of the divine. As with previous editions, each yearly edition has a theme. The theme for 2015 is "Filled with Joy," and it aims to show that God's love is forever being refilled, and that he willingly offers guidance to anyone who seeks it.
The Daily Guideposts 2015: A Spirit-Lifting Devotional is a devotional organized around the days of the year. You have about one page devoted to each day of the year, and both the month and the date for each devotional is provided to help keep you on track. For each day you are provided with a short passage from the Bible, usually no more than one line. These passages are followed by a first person account that illustrates that days passage in action. These true, first person accounts are friendly reminders of how God touches our lives, and they are both inspirational and thought provoking. Following these first person accounts you'll find a short prayer that will help you focus your mind and your heart for the day. And, for those that want to delve deeper into that day's message, there is a 'Digging Deeper' section that provides pertinent portions of the scriptures that will reinforce the lessons learned from that day's devotional.
The Daily Guideposts serves not only as a daily devotional, but also as a reference and comfort that you can refer to when times are difficult or when you are simply looking for some spiritual direction or for some uplifting inspiration. If you are already familiar with the Daily Guideposts, you will find that many of the writers who contributed to the 2015 edition are old friends, as well you'll also meet some new friends in this edition. If this is your first introduction to the series, be prepared to meet some very nice writers whose conversational styles of writing will make you almost feel as if you are sitting across the table from an old friend as you discuss scripture.
Best of all, this large print edition of Daily Guideposts 2015 contains the same text as the standard print edition, including the book's indexes that make it easy for you to find a beloved author or a specific message. In addition, this large print edition is printed in a 16-point font that will not only make reading easier for those that need a large print edition, but also for those with tired eyes at the end of a long day or early in the morning when you want a quick dose of inspiration.
Each day's reading should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete if you read both the day's devotional and the related Biblical passages. However the feeling of joy and inspiration that you will get from these readings will last you the entire day, and they can be used to help 'jump-start' further study and contemplation on the day's message or simply on the love of God that permeates this book.
Ideal for personal use and gift giving, the Daily Guideposts 2015 is a must-have book for those seeking to grow spiritually.
