Word Writers does not disappoint! The gentle devotions Denise shares are insightful and encouraging. The study questions are challenging and thought-provoking. Her prayers at the end of each day's reading are both beautiful and meditative.
But by far there are two aspects of this study which firmly set it apart from almost every other Bible study available —
1. Denise did not include the biblical text in the book. I LOVE THIS!! I love the encouragement and necessity of looking up the Scripture for myself. Whether in my physical Bible or on my phone, it is a good exercise for all of us to remember the Bible is the primary text for believers.
2. Writing the Scriptures out by hand every day. While I've always written out verses in my journals as I studied sections of Scripture, I've never written out a whole book of the Bible in this way before. It's such a powerful way to continue to meditate on the Scriptures and to soak in the truth they contain. I know I'll be adding this practice into any study I do from now on.
I can't wait to start the next Word Writers study (and the next one after that!). If you are looking for a way to dig deep into the Word and you want a wise and thoughtful guide, these studies are just what you need!!
Suffering from CRPS, a flare-up of that whilst reading this book, allowed me to read the book and Philippians through a lens of pain and need for comfort. Paul neither dismisses suffering nor gives it centre stage, he reminds me to make choices. It is a choice to be joyful, the strength to live it out comes from God not me and each day I can walk in obedience no matter the circumstances. Denise surrounds this truth, sometimes harsh, in love and real-life examples of how to do it and the consequences of not.
"The words joy and rejoice appear 16 times in four brief chapters. Paul's letter to the church in Philippi reads like a "personal manifesto on how to live a life full of joy.""
"Joy is anchored in the unshakeable belief that something good - Someone good- lies beyond our present circumstances."
"We discover joy as we accept the limits of our situation and trust the Lord to work beyond them."
"Leaving well frees us to love those who become a part of our past as well as those who become a part of our future. We take our character with us everywhere."
"But true harmony is only possible when believers are walking in integrity, when their manner of being is consistent wherever they go."
The 20 steps towards a life of deeper joy I will be carrying with me, writing out and setting to memory. I loved the translation to the practical every-day life that Denise creates in this book.
