Daily Devotionals

If a Survivor is to heal properly, the most foundational thing they can do is to get to know the God of Scripture, for that is where the Source of healing lies, and that is where the deep wounds are attended to, and the deep questions are wrestled through and answered.

 

An important part of that process is spending time drawing close to the One who Himself went through the most profound of abuse and betrayal, felt the sting of abandonment, the soul-crushing sense of walking in a god-forsaken wilderness, without any answers. And, along with regular time in Scripture, a personal daily devotion can help with growing deeper in your walk and your understanding.

 

The following are some recommended devotionals, with samples of what you will find within their pages. They can easily be ordered or downloaded on the internet.

Swindoll ('Chuck', as he likes to be called), he has been serving as a source of reliable Biblical truth for years.
