Book Review: “Awakened for 90 Days with the Speaking God”

“Good Choice!” The Devotional Book That Will Awaken You Every Day

Are you looking for a devotional book that can help you grow spiritually and deepen your relationship with God? Then look no further than Priscilla Shirer’s “Good Choice!: How to make the right decision every time”.

With its 90 devotions, this book can awaken you every day with fresh insights gleaned from Shirer’s experiences and the Spirit of God. Shirer, who is a mom, wife, encourager, and a friend, shares her personal stories, struggles, and victories, which can inspire and challenge you in your faith journey.

One of the things that make “Good Choice!” an exceptional devotional book is how it reflects the author’s heart for God and for people. Shirer is not a distant theologian or a celebrity preacher who is disconnected from reality. She is relatable, approachable, and humble. She writes as a fellow traveler who understands the daily struggles and joys of ordinary Christians.

Another reason why “Good Choice!” is a good choice is its biblical soundness. Shirer doesn’t just offer her opinions or platitudes; she grounds her insights in the Word of God. Each devotion is built around a Scripture passage and unpacks its meaning and application. Shirer doesn’t shy away from difficult or unpopular topics, but she approaches them with grace, truth, and discernment.

The devotions cover a wide range of topics, such as fear, doubt, anxiety, forgiveness, obedience, prayer, gratitude, and mission. Each topic is explored from different angles and illustrated with vivid analogies and personal anecdotes. Whether you are a new believer or a seasoned one, you will find something in this book that resonates with your heart and challenges your mind.

What makes “Good Choice!” even more engaging and compelling is the author’s writing style. Shirer is not a dry or academic writer who puts you to sleep. She is a lively, witty, and creative writer who knows how to use language effectively and imaginatively. She mixes humor with truth, poetry with prose, and simplicity with depth. She creates word pictures that stay with you long after you read them.

Here’s an example from the devotion “Bridges and Bumper Cars”:

“When we pray, sometimes we come to a bridge— a point when we must choose whether to cross over to the other side of God’s will or stay on this side of our comfort zone. Sometimes it’s a small bridge, like a little stream that we can hop over without getting wet. Other times it’s a big bridge, like a long and high suspension bridge that sways in the wind and makes us dizzy. The question is not whether there are bridges in our lives, but whether we are willing to cross them.”

Or this one from “Let God be God”:

“We can’t control everything or everyone, thank goodness. Can you imagine if you had to orchestrate the universe? If you had to make sure that the sun rose and set on time, that the rain fell where it should, that animals behaved predictably, and that people followed your plan? It would be exhausting and impossible. But God can do it. He does it every day. He’s not only sovereign, but He’s also good. That means He has the power and the wisdom to order our lives in the best possible way, even when we don’t understand or like it.”

You don’t have to read “Good Choice!” in one sitting or follow it in a specific order. You can read it according to your schedule, your mood, or your need. Each devotion is self-contained and can stand alone. You can read it with a group or by yourself, in the morning or in the evening, in peace or in chaos.

But one thing is for sure: if you read “Good Choice!”, you will be awakened to God’s love, grace, and power, and you will be challenged to make good choices every day. You will discover that God’s Word is not only relevant but also practical, not only inspiring but also transforming. You will experience how God can speak to you through His Word and through the voice of His Spirit. You will be reminded that you are not alone or helpless, but you are a beloved child of God who can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

So if you are looking for a devotional book that can awaken you every day, strengthen you in every way, and help you make good choices, then make a good choice and get “Good Choice!: How to make the right decision every time.”
