In the book The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, a little girl discovers a garden long left neglected. She finds a key to this garden by accident and the hidden door under an overgrown creeper leads her into a garden of mystery and delight. She comes to know herself in the garden. As she brings it back to life with the help of friends, layers of her own brokenness are uncovered and she comes to a new place of self acceptance and healing.
God has a secret place for each of us in the garden of our hearts. This is a place for only God and us. We have been given the unique key and God wants to spend time with us there. We go on an adventure of discovery in this secret garden, where Jesus communes with us and leads us into deeper intimacy and healing. We grow in greater dimensions of love in this place of devotion.
The devotional book "Catching the Light" embraces the process of reflection and spiritual growth. Each of the 51 devotions are accompanied by poems for contemplation and scripture readings to open up times of prayer.
This devotional will be a journey with God through the areas of brokenness you have experienced in your life as you walk with hope into new beginnings. There are seven chapters starting with Broken, Forgiveness, The Desert, Waiting, Prayer, Listening and finally New Beginnings. Catching the Light is available as a Kindle e-book at Amazon.com.
