Perfect Love

This book is filled with gold nuggets.  It is not a book you can read quickly, it is more a book to use as part of your devotions and prayer.  The chapters are quite long and it is not a book you feel drawn to because it's very serious and makes us think about how we view God and His love for us.  I don’t think most of us really want to neither think as deeply as the author nor stop long enough to let it sink in. 

 Ruth Meyers shares her life experiences intimately so you get to know her both personally and spiritually.  As she shares her weaknesses, you see yourself.  Then she shares God’s Word in ways that make it easy for us to praise Him and go deeper in our relationship with Him and to try to comprehend how great His love is for us.  The prayers at the end of each chapter are worth copying for your own prayer time.  I have so many highlights and notes – and I’m sad that I only have this e-book for 60 days but thankful to Waterbrook Multnomah for allowing me to review it.
