"God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea" by Rose Chandler Johnson

Devotionals are wonderful companion books for your Bible, or wonderful to have available for the times you are waiting. In her new devotional, "God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea," Rose Chandler Johnson helps her readers to "experience God in the midst of everyday moments."

This book has a great title. It lets readers have a glimpse of what is inside. The book is about each person's relationship with God in everyday settings. Just as an iced cold glass of iced tea quenches thirst, studying God's Word quenches our thirst for more of Him. This devotional contains many wonderful topics with Scripture readings, questions, journaling ideas, a prayer with a prayer focus, and "a sweet iced tea moment." An example of that is, "Don't give up, your labor is not in vain." Examples of the devotions are: "Stop Complaining," Your Adversary the Devil," and "Train the Children."These short, thoughtful, and encouraging devotions will become welcome refreshment for readers everywhere.

I wanted to read this book simply because of the title, and then it came! My book came gift wrapped with a hand-written note from Mrs. Johnson. What a joy those touches brought and then I started to read and study. I love that Mrs. Johnson uses different versions of the Bible (labeling each) and is thoughtful with the devotions. They truly are for the everyday moments. I think my favorite is "Reality of the Indwelling Christ." If you are looking for a new devotional, or simply enjoy reading new ones, this book is for you. It will also make a wonderful gift. I was privileged to receive my review copy for participation in the LItfuse Blog Tour.
