I See God in the Thorns-n-Thistles by Shirley Kiger Connolly
When your heart is burdened and you're experiencing times of trial, where do you turn? When you're challenged by the complexities of life, the afflictions, the tests, and the tragedies, do you run to or from God? If you run toward Him, do you try to see what He's teaching you? God remains with you not only in the simple circumstances but also during the toughest times of your life. You're never alone, and I See God in the Thorns~n~Thistles offers you, in independent devotions, a way to make the most out of the troubles, a way to draw closer to God because, and oftentimes in spite of, your pain. Life-changing lessons like these not only help us on our personal journeys, they teach us to have compassion for others who we learn need it more. Isn't that what life's all about for the believer?

Easy reading at night before its time to go to sleep. I See God in the Thorns n Thistles shows the reader how to find her way through a trial without being consumed by it. I like this book because you can go through it individually or in a small group setting. Either way, there is lots you can gain from it. Plenty of scripture references. And good reflections. I recommend it.

I loved this book. I had a chance to review one of the first copies of Ms Connolly's book. It takes us on the next level from her Simple Things devotional. Since my life is full of thorns and thistles, it hit home for me in so many places. I'm going to purchase more for my friends.

What a blessing this was. Such insight and brought forth in such a unique way. If you havent read this book yet, you need to. Lots of scripture, wonderful prayers, good challenge questions, and the devotions, each one, really minister to ANYONE.
