If you’re like me, you don’t know who Babbie Mason is. It’s okay. She’s a teacher, a songwriter, a gospel singer, and the author of this book, Embraced by God, a 21-day devotional book created for women who want to “celebrate who and whose you are.” It’s that simple.
I love the tone of this book. It’s soft and flowing, like engaging in a conversation with a dear friend you’ve known forever. The words will be embraced and help growth through investing in the reader’s spiritual growth. It’s about Christ, your identity within Him, and how it all translates into your life.
One of the things that made me sit in awe and reread was when Mason shared that even if I were the ONLY person in the world, God would have still sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die for me.
My heart swelled with so many emotions as I read this book and grew closer to my God, His promises, and the reality that everything ends and begins with God’s love. Truly a John 3:16 moment.
Mason takes the scriptures and shows you how they apply in everyday life.
There are seven promises that Mason covers in her book, Embraced by God:
- God’s passion for you is unconditional
- God’s picture of you is beautiful
- God’s presence in you is perpetual
- God’s provision for you is immeasurable
- God’s plan for you is exceptional
- God’s power in you is accessible
- God’s promise in you is incomparable
This great devotional will have you rediscovering love in all things.
