My regular readers know I'm a fan of Dr. Charles Stanley, Southern Baptist pastor in Atlanta, Georgia, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention, author, and photographer -- to name just some of his accomplishments.
One of his books is Every Day in His Presence, a daily devotional that takes the reader through every day of the year. I love this book.
Each devotion is only one page in length and explains a verse from the Bible with great practical applications. Nearly every morning when I pick it up, I read something of value to me on a very personal level. Dr. Stanley addresses all sorts of problems, questions, and just out right conundrums that perplex me. I look forward to what God has to say to me through His Word and this man every day.
If you are looking for a devotional book to start off your new year, look into this one.
