God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea {Rose Chandler Johnson}

god me and sweet iced tea devotional
In the South, nothing is more refreshing than a glass of sweet iced tea. Nothing, that is, except experiencing God in those small, everyday moments. God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea is a deeply personal collection of spiritual treasures designed to help readers experience new mercies each morning. Seasoned with insight and grace, this tender devotional points to the divine presence of God in everyday moments. Whether purchased as a personal resource or given as a heartfelt gift, God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea will help readers develop a daily habit of turning to God in those quite moments of reflection.

My Thoughts:
I love a good devotional, and this book does not disappoint.

In this devotional, Rose Chandler Johnson has taken some of those most comment things that we struggle with every single day, and addressed them with a quick and to the point reminder that God has everything in control. From struggling with forgiveness, to dealing with our fears, we are reminded that we are God's children and that He is going to take care of us - we just have to trust in Him.

Each time I opened this book, it seemed like it fell to a topic that I needed guidance or reassurance with in that exact moment. The entire book reads that way and just seems to speak to me on so many levels.

Each daily devotion is followed by a scripture recommendation, a daily prayer, and a suggestion for journaling topics. It concludes with the Sweet Iced Tea Moment that serves as the takeaway for the day - something to remember as we go throughout our days.

I really enjoyed this devotion and recommend it to anyone looking for an easy, but powerful reminder of what God does for us.
