The One Year Book of Encouragement by Harold Myra

Harold Myra
The One Year Book of Encouragement

The light rail stopped at the Denver Auraria Higher Education Center. The students were pushed this way and that at the light rail, we were all expecting to be taken on home Arcadia.  A place without the tinge and pain of decay and the agony of death.  
Our hopes were high, but these hopes have been pushed this way and that. People have lost faith in a turning around and stand still watching the sand granules slowly slip through the hourglass.  Americans are beginning to feel discouraged. 
Harold Myra published the book The One Year Book of Encouragement, in order to provide a life line from the traumatic state in the United States today.  Myra sees that Christians need “refreshment …in the deep authentic rivers of our Christian Heritage.”(v)  He sees the insight of our Christian Heritage as authentic because the truth from these authors was “hammered out on the anvil of life’s realities.”(v)
The book succeeds in providing encouraging and challenging thoughts for people amidst the tension of today’s economic recession.  The author includes scripture verses that encourage the reader to look deeper into the word of God.   Also the author models a prayer each day that will encourage your prayer life.  
This book is a keeper and a definite cluck.
Personally, I look forward to starting my day each day by reading an encouraging word from this book.   
I received this book free from the publisher through the Tyndale review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
