The Goodnight Book
An Evening Devotional
Our busy, action-packed days can make ‘winding down’ difficult in the evening. Fear of what tomorrow may bring, pressures on the marriage, in the workplace or family; major decisions looming ahead, the heaviness of grief – all can linger in our minds and keep us from being rested.
It has been observed by many that the last thing we think about at night tends to stay with us and become a part of the subconscious, our dreams, and thus affects our mental and emotional health. So here is a devotional for the evening! Designed to help you with edifying thoughts at the conclusion of the day. 123 evenings of devotional material.
“My friend has prayerfully selected his favorite stories, poems, hymns and scriptures, and created a priceless little collection of encouraging insights that will shape your nighttime dreams and enhance your evening reflections. It’s just the sort of thing you want to read before you pillow your head. Thank you, Richard, for placing The Goodnight Book by my bedside. It will, no doubt, make my night a good one!” — Joni Eareckson Tada
“The Goodnight Book is helpful in using phrases and words that sharpen the mind to be more God-focused in times of adversity and it provides plenty of opportunity for self-reflection. It also gives practical suggestions on how to cope with the stresses and strains of postmodern life.” — Evangelicals Now
“This is a most marvellous book, full of one page messages which seem to fit in with every situation in my life. Some will bring tears to my eyes, other pages will even make me smile. All to the glory of God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Richard has the knack of putting words together beautifully. Thank you Richard.” — Maureen Todd Davies
