When an author writes from her own spiritual relationship coupled with being a licensed counselor, you get an authentic perspective with thought provoking guidance. Meredith McDaniel discusses the book of Exodus as the Israelites journey through the desert. It is not necessarily a Bible study on the book of Exodus, but more of a side by side comparison. She uses guided journaling to help you see how to let go of the tight grip we have on our plans and let God be our provider. Just as God would provide “manna” from heaven daily to feed the Israelites, she focuses on finding the “manna” in our own lives. Learning how to recognize God’s hand in the daily circumstances.
I really enjoyed the way in which this book is laid out for the reader. It leads you through the journey as though you are sitting with a trusted mentor who doesn’t just tell you the answer but leads you to it. It’s not a surface level read as it will make you take pause and think deeper. It has many thought provoking questions throughout, scriptures for you to meditate on and songs to use as a resource. It’s a book that I will go back to as a guide when I need to be reminded to look for the “manna”. Enjoy this read and discover the Creator and how He provides for you!
