Comfort and Grace - Giveaway and Review

I find myself drawn to the Psalms of the Bible for pure inspiration. Perhaps its a difficult time in my life and I find myself drawn to David's grief while stumbling through a faith issue in his life or just praising God for creating me to become a perfect masterpiece always in His eyes.

I had the rare opportunity to review a book from Connie Arnold called Comfort and Grace. It's a collection of poems that Connie herself has written that fall in line with today's modern day psalms. There are poems that seek God's presence, looking at glimpses of His grace, looking at what is really important in our lives, slowing down and taking time to enjoy our lives, and a section on comfort and hope for those dealing with difficult storms in their lives.

What a breath of fresh air is was to be able to enjoy these each day a little at a time as though God was speaking to me through the words I found in them. Connie is truly a gifted poet in her ability to not only touch our souls but to show us the love of God in our daily situations.

I was provided with a signed copy of her collection of poems compliments of Connie Arnold herself to review, and I must say I truly love having them next to me each day. I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars! She has even been so gracious to extend this blessing to a follower of mine to enjoy a signed copy of her book as well.

  5. Thanks for the great giveaway. My favorite psalm changes with what is going on in my life. David expresses himself so clearly in the psalms-seeking forgiveness, wanting revenge until he sees God's mercy in his own life, praises, etc.
