Life is a journey. Along the road, do you ever ponder the big questions: What is the meaning of life? Where did I come from? What happens when I die? Where do you find the answers? Do you wonder: Are there no maps, no GPS systems, no road signs at the crossroads? Are there no yellow warning lights or guardrails on sharp curves and narrow bridges?
If there is a God, would he be so cruel as to leave us to flounder and wander and lose our way? When we are overwhelmed, when troubles surround us, when we’re sinking in the quicksand of life, is there no one who hears our desperate cries for help? Is there no one to send out a search-and-rescue party? These are questions that, if left unanswered, can and will leave us lonely and hopeless, fearful and confused.
The good news is, there is a God, and he has a message for you. His message is so big, clear, safe, and strong that it can radically and permanently change your entire life.
God is not a distant God. He is near and kind and wise and good. Of course he cares about your personal journey, because he cares about you. No one has or ever will love you more.
Solomon asked in Proverbs 31:10, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.” Throughout the Proverbs Solomon defines the virtuous woman. Debbi Bryson has carefully searched through the Proverbs to ferret out those definitions.
I believe that this research by Debbi, which has been put into an easy-to-read daily format, will be a spiritually enriching addition to any lady’s devotional reading. I highly recommend it to any lady who is seeking to become the woman that God would have her to be.
I believe that it will provide valuable understanding as to a biblical definition
of a virtuous woman.
Wisdom for Women was birthed on an ordinary day in Juneau, Alaska. That morning I went for a walk to the glacier with my friend Lisa. As we walked, she shared her sorrow that women are often confused, discouraged, and sidetracked.
Hard situations or bad choices cause painful life consequences. Then she stopped and said, “Debbi, write something for us. We’ll put it on the radio up here.” Quite to my surprise, by the time we got back to the house, Wisdom for Women had a name and a plan. Before long it began airing on the radio.
God truly does work in surprising ways. It then took several years to write and record 365 audio devotionals now heard on stations across the nation and as far away as Belize and Israel. “Let’s sit down and talk” is the heart and tone. QR codes on the back cover and throughout this book allow you to scan and listen to the audio devotionals as you read each day.
