This isn’t technically a book, but since I’ve noticed there are many releases of various journals, Diaries, and notebooks I wanted to see if this journal would be useful. As I mentioned, I’ve seen several journals like from Harry Potter, Twilight,Veggie Tales, lol I’m surprised I haven’t seen a Sponge Bob journal yet. Of course this isn’t just some paper with a binding and a cartoon logo on the cover. This arrangement is a devotional journal where one can both ponder scripture and write down things at the same time. The God’s Promises Devotional Journal was arranged by Jack Countryman.

This journal has a page for every day of the year from January 1st until December 31st; although February 29th is not included… Everyday there is a passage of scripture at the top of the page. In the middle, there is also a quotation from a Christian pastor/author like Max Lucado, Sarah Young, Billy Graham, Dr. John MacArthur, Dr. David Jeremiah, Sheila Walsh, etc. At the bottom, there is a devotional question one can ponder after reading the verse and quotation. Obviously I did not ponder this for the entire year, but for the most part I liked what I had read. I feel the scripture, quotation, and devotional question fit together fine. However, as someone who likes to write, I was disappointed by the amount of space for some of the questions. For an example there is the June 29th question: ‘Do you believe in Satan, or is he a fictional character to you? If you believe in him, do you fear him, or do you trust in the power of Christ in your life?’. It is a great question along with a great passage of scripture and a great commentary by John Hagee, however the question is longer than the space they provide for you to answer! Otherwise this is a good devotional journal for anyone from teen to adult in my opinion.

Book Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
