Be Blessed Tonight

Feel the concerns of your day fade away through the reassuring promises of God. These blessings offer refreshment to your soul and a biblical perspective to your thoughts.

"May the Lord show you His favor and give you His peace."

"I cannot recommend Susie Larson to you highly enough."--Ann Voskamp, bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts

It was exactly what I was looking for. I listen to Susie Larson every day on Christian radio, and I am on Facebook with her. So I read her 'Blessings for the Evening" every night. I print them off, but it's fantastic to have it in book form. I will need to order another copy as I have given on away as a birthday gift, and will be giving me copy to a friend as well.

A Must Have Sept. 23 2013
By Kat - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Susie's Blessings for the Evening is a must have for the coffee table. Each page is decorated with beautiful pictures, on the left page a Bible Verse, on the right are Blessings which contain deep theological truths of God's promises and character. At first, I read Susie's blessings day and night via facebook, it sounded to good to be true. But as I dissected each promise that she wrote, I realized how Biblically true they all were. It is so important to know and believe in God's goodness in order to see yourself through the eyes of God. This book, when meditated on, will reveal who God really is, His goodness, His love, and His amazing involvement in your everyday life. I cannot go to bed without reading and meditating on one promise. It is a book to be read over and over again, and/or to give to a friend going through a hard time.

What a wonderful book! Nov. 5 2013
By Tammy's Book Parlor - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful book! The pages are loaded with pictures of nature, people and animals.
The pictures are bright and colorful and then the words are printed "on top" of the pictures.
This is not a sit down and read it type of book. It's more of a type of book. It's relaxing book.
There are prayers, scriptures and short/very short devotionals. It's not a deep book and therefore, it makes for a great before I go to sleep read.
I love all the pictures but one of my faves is on page 111. There is a beautiful picture of a sunset with a long walk out to a lake. It is entitled, Purpose in Every Step.
This is a great encouraging "read."
I'm going to give this book as a get well card to those who need encouragement when they are ill.
It would also make a great gift!

Blessings review Nov. 2 2013
By Jan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have been listening to Susie Larson on the radio for several months and was looking forward to the release of this book. I was NOT disappointed! I ordered one for me and 2 others for friends who are struggling.
This book is the perfect size to sit on my night stand or to tuck away in my purse. It is of great quality and feels "solid" in my hands.
Susie combines the truths of Scripture on the left page and her blessings on the right. Each of these are pasted upon beautiful backdrops of pictures of creation which are very refreshing to behold. She has a way of playing with words to create passages full of encouragement and strength. As God is known to do, each passage seems to be just what I need.
The book is priced so well. It is definitely affordable to give as a gift.
Love this book!!

Great devotional Nov. 12 2013
By Angel - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I admit that I didn't read this book one blessing per night, partly because I tend to read several pages of any book at once, and partly because I wanted to get it read for this review. I do plan to go back and reread one blessing per night, though, since I think it is a nice way to end the day.

Each night's reading in the book has one scripture reading on the first page and one blessing that corresponds to that scripture. The words are printed over gorgeous nature photography. There is an index in the front, which is nice for finding particular words of encouragement. Titles range from "A Thankful Heart" and "Let God Carry the Load" to "Christ in Focus." There are also a few season-specific blessings at the end of the book for Thanksgiving, Christmas, grieving, etc.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a soothing and empowering read. It would be a lovely gift, too. I highly recommend this book.

I received this book from Bethany House for the purpose of writing a review, but all opinions are my own.

simple and nice. Dec 10 2013
By Emily - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a nice looking hard back book. Small enough for your bedside table. It is full color with pleasant pictures on every single page. Facing pages make one big picture. They’re the sentimental type, fields of flowers, beaches, serene images to keep you nice and calm in the evening. There’s a brief bible quotation on the left facing page and a simple prayer on the right page. This book seems simple and enjoyable enough for Christians of any denomination. Doesn’t particularly seem conflicting with any tenants of faith. They’re simple, common day prayers and thoughts. This is a good way for someone to begin with prayer if they haven’t had a particularly detailed or fulfilling prayer life. It’s also a great addition or companion for the person who is quite comfortable with prayer. It’s not very in depth or particularly thought provoking for the deep, contemplative praying person.

I received this book for free from Bethany House Books.
