Way back when, one of the items on my 24 Before 24 List was to devote myself to a devotional. I want to tell y'all about the one I've been using - God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea.
The "teaser" for this book is "God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea is a deeply personal collection of spiritual treasures designed to help readers experience new mercies each morning. Seasoned with insight and grace, this tender devotional points to the divine presence of God in everyday moments. God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea will help readers develop a daily habit of turning to God in those quiet moments of reflection. "
I'm really picky about devotionals, because I feel like they can get a little fluffy. There's nothing wrong with fluff, but it's just not my style. What I love so much about God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea is that it feels like a conversation. You feel like you could be sitting on the porch swing chatting about life and Jesus with the author, Rose Chandler Johnson.
I love structure, so I also really enjoy the way that this devotional is laid out.
• A short devotional
• A few verses of suggested reading
• A couple of journaling questions
• A prayer
• A daily "sweet tea moment" for reflection
• A prayer focus (This is my favorite piece because it really reminds me every evening just how fortunate I am.)
The biggest thing for me with this devotional is that I was able to relate to it. Sometimes when I read books about big cities or far away places, I really have to use my imagination. I don't know what it's like to take a subway to work or to have a Starbucks within walking distance. I've lived in Northeast Tennessee all of my life, so I really relate to the "Southern" element of this book.
If you have any questions about this devotional, I'm glad to answer them in the comments section or via email! Do you have a favorite devotional?
