Introduction

These studies began from the overflowing sense of  awe that whelmed up as a result of my personal quiet-time and meditation in the Word of God. Because I am a visual learner, I found that the more I feasted on the Scripture, the more I desired to apply God’s Word into my life by documenting future lessons for a more in-depth study. It goes without saying that God soon gave me a desire to share with others the magnificent treasures I had gleaned.

Consequently, the Deliberately Living Life Devotionals began.

These devotionals are written in a bible study format and explain precept upon precept and line upon line. They are geared to aid you, my dear readers, as they have aided me in my pursuit to embrace each day with purposeful godly living. Because of our confession of faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the manner of our living matters.

It is my prayer that these short devotionals will encourage you to use all the experiences which you have encountered, both good and bad, as a transparent testimony through which you can share the Good News of Jesus Christ!

What People are Saying!

Pat Fenner says…

What I most appreciate about this book is the gradual progressive nature of the concepts. In Day 1, the reader is extended an invitation “to taste”; by the end of 31 days, however, we are being encouraged to “tell the world”! In between are lessons and reminders to “Guard Our Minds”, “Come Out of Our Comfort Zone” and “…Hang in There!”, among others. And sprinkled throughout are additional Bible verses to memorize that will help us get moving. None of the chapters are discouragingly long or difficult, making this a great book to use if you are just getting into the habit of daily Bible reading and devotional time. But each chapter does pack its own “punch” and carries with it the weight of Truth…

Cindy Lemay says…

Can I stop the habit of just hearing? Of course! But as Yolanda Shanks points out in her devotional study “Not Just a Hearer but a Doer” I have to be DELIBERATE about it. It won’t just happen, I have to make it happen.

One way to start is to use Yolanda’s devotional guide. In 31 days I will be challenged to look closely at me (ugh), then it will be my choice to follow through with what I find.

Each day begins with a paragraph to open up the topic, followed by a scripture verse. The background of the verse is given along with a detailed explanation of a specific part of that verse. At this point an application is made and other verses to study are given. Then there is a section where I can write my own personal application. That is the hardest part for sure! It’s easy for me to be filled up with knowledge, but then acting on that knowledge is where I stumble!

I really like how the author lays this out step by step using scripture as the foundation. I can’t be a doer of the Word without knowing the Word of God now can I!

MGKerri says…

The thing I love most about Yolanda’s book is that she breaks down Scripture by defining the key words, making it easier to understand, and follow. She even goes back to he original Greek or Hebrew, which is THE BEST way to understand Scripture. I love that she, like me, understands that LIVING is a verb, and we are meant to actively live out the Word of God.
