Melissa said it so well. Sometimes reading the posted devotional is the highlight of my day. A few I read and re-read. I've talked to people who keep certain ones on file for later use.
One of the great things about these pieces of writing is that the writers are usually very open about their struggles and this helps me not to feel so alone. That by itself is uplifting, confidence building.
Although verses of the Bible are referred to, these are not intended to be Bible studies. They are words expressing the writer's thoughts and feelings, with comfort and/or a solution, practical or spiritual. Here you will NOT find words minimizing your pain and suffering, or simple answers that just make you feel worse.
When you have read the particular devotional, you can make a comment about it, which is also posted. Often the comments are as inspiring as the article itself. And, many of the writings have a way in which you can contact them directly.
