{Zondervan Bold Tour} Unglued Devotional, 60 Days of Imperfect Progress by Lysa Terkeurst

Book Description:  This companion devotional to the bestselling book Unglued provides encouragement to help readers handle emotional struggles. Including a daily opening Scripture, Thought for the Day, devotion, and closing prayer, this book helps readers begin a 60-day journey in learning to positively process raw emotions, such as fear, anger, and regret.

My Thoughts:  When I saw this devotional, Unglued, 60 Days of Imperfect Progress, by Lysa Terkeurst, I knew this devotional was written just for me!
As a mother, a pastor's wife and a teacher I feel that I am coming Unglued at times.  You know, those little things that don't mean much to anyone else but can make you, well, come unglued!??!  
I also was impressed by the subtitle, 60 Days of Imperfect Progress.  Yeah, um, that's me!  Imperfect by trying.
As I was reading this devotional and came to Day 32, p. 101, Procedure Manual Step 5, Your Reactions Determine Your Reach,  the scripture from 2 Chronicles 20:29-30, is given at the top of the chapter. And then the Thought For the Day:  "My  reactions testify to the kind of relationship I have with Jesus and the kind of effect He has on my heart."  Oh!My! Just what I needed for the day!
I then prayed the prayer at the end of the chapter:  "Dear Lord, in times when my happy gets bumped, help me to add to the authenticity of my love for you, not negate it.  In Jesus' name. Amen."
This is a great devotional for those of us traveling the road of life.  And, yes, we are imperfect and will have days we come unglued but He is there for us!  
If you're feeling unglued then grab this devotional today!  And join us as we seek His way!
