Consider the Lilies is a 7X10 softbound, matte cover Scripture study journal that is thoughtfully written and beautifully designed. Every day of this six week study provides Scripture to get you started and notes for further Bible reading. You will find a daily devotion, some thoughts to consider as journal, and a prayer prompt to dovetail with your reading. There are generous pages for writing and art journaling. Step by step, day by day, these words console and bring clarity to the hard days.
Maybe this is a difficult season in your life—you’re overwhelmed by the burdens weighing you down, the crosses the He’s asked you to carry. You look heavenward and all you feel is… abandoned.
It is full of the consolations of the Holy Spirit. Here, you will find a guidebook to what God is saying, how He is encouraging you to lament, to pour out your grief and your fears and your anger. This journal acknowledges that in this broken, fallen world we do suffer.
Or maybe you’re in a sweet spot. Life is really rather good right now. You’re not feeling any particular strain.
In it, you find the words you need to console a friend, to empathize with the people around you who are suffering. I promise you, they are suffering. You are daily surrounded by people who bow low under the weight of grief, often without any outward sign of dismay. This study makes you a better friend to woman next to you, to the growing child who aches, to the spouse who despairs. And it buries words into your heart so that they are there, waiting, when the rain begins to fall. Because it will fall.
This study is for all of us. We’re all in it together.
