Why Should I Be Bound? is a 30 day devotional written to remind the reader that trials, struggles, and even doubt are a part of our human condition. We are not alone and with God’s promises, we do not have to be bound by life’s distractions.
Each daily reading contains seven (7) components that provide the reader with an opportunity to realize life’s challenges paired with the comfort of God’s Word. These components include:
• background Scripture
• key verse
• a hymn
• the devotional text
• a prayer
• Scripture text, and a
• space to journal your reflections or prayers
An additional element includes original poetry strategically placed throughout the devotional, which expresses praise, worship, and an emotional connection to the Scripture.
Integrated with personal experiences and lessons from Scripture, this devotional reminds readers that life is universal—we all have visible and invisible scars. Yet, God’s grace and mercy is far-reaching and accessible to each of us.
