I am reviewing Rhythms of Rest 40 Devotions for Women on the Move through Our Daily Bread Publishing and Netgalley:

In Rhythms of Rest we are reminded that essential parts of the spiritual life, but many Christian women find both elusive in the middle of lives busy serving families, churches, businesses, and communities.

The word Selah appears in the book of Psalms 71 times, and it often is repeated in a single Psalm. It also appears in Habakkuk three times. Delay means to pause.

In Rhythms of Rest you are provided a respite for you to be still and spend time with the Lord.

These 40 meaningful devotions from leaders in Black and multicultural communities and churches invite you to pause and reflect on Scripture as you ponder topics like soul-care, sisterhood, seasons of life, and Spirit led living.

In Rhythms of Rest you will find daily sustenance and strength from the personal stories, reflections, questions, quotes, and Scripture passages shared by your sisters in Christ.

I give Rhythms of Rest five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
