A Year of Tenacity by Janet Sketchley

About the Book

365 Daily Devotions to Warm Your Spirit and Encourage Your Heart

“Tenacity” is persistence. Holding on. Not giving up. It’s a quality we need as Christians, and the beautiful thing we discover as we spend time with the Lord is the depth of His tenacity toward us. We may falter, but His hold is sure, His love unshakable, and His grace without limit.

Like the wild rose thrives with its roots anchored in the cleft in the rock, we find life and security when we abide in our Rock.

A Year of Tenacity is a compilation of the best devotionals from the author’s blog, “Tenacity,” freshly updated for this book. Some are short, others fill a page, but each of these conversational-style insights and heart-sharing moments will bless and inspire.

Entries are numbered by day, not by date, so readers aren’t tied to a calendar year and don’t have to play catch-up if they miss a few days.

Honest, engaging, and uplifting, these devotionals are ideal for both long-time Christians and those just finding their way.

 

Book Excerpt

Day 1

Our Good Shepherd

He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth. And he will be our peace… Micah 5:4-5a, NIV

This seems to be one of those prophecies with different stages. Ultimately, Jesus will return. Every knee will bow, and every tongue acknowledge the sovereignty of God (Romans 14:11). The world will know Jesus is Lord.

But today, He rules in Christians’ hearts and lives. He stands — a warrior who cannot be overcome — and shepherds us. He stands in strength, majesty and power. Despite our circumstances, our hearts can be secure — we can live securely — because He is shepherding us.

And He will be our peace.

Be my peace, Jesus, even in the storms. Nothing can separate me from You, and You’ll never abandon me. Strengthen my faith to trust You.
