Divine Direction
By Benecia Ponder
Genre: Non-fiction Inspirational
Release Date: 28 February 2022

Divine Direction is a collection of stories of ordinary people who received extraordinary guidance in their lives. Whether it was a career or life change, a relationship in trouble, or a crisis, each of the authors found a way to listen to the Divine and let Him steer them in the right direction at just the right time.

The stories are often raw and vulnerable, reflections on the human experience in all of its messy yet perfectly aligned beauty.

Readers are encouraged to approach this book in whatever way feels right. The stories can be read in order and from beginning to end, or at random. Either way, take time to pause and reflect on the story and its message before moving on to the next chapter.

The authors’ journeys and revelations will help you gain insight into the messages and lessons you’ve received in your own life, providing clarity and inspiration as you endeavor to find our own divine direction!

My Review

The Divine Direction was a nice, short read. It's full of personal stories of people that had gone through hard times and felt the light and love of God or a higher power in their lives. Many of the things people said I could really relate to. Other things were so inspiring to me to look at things differently. 
Here are some excerpts from the book...

“Awareness is very powerful. It restores our power and control over our lives and our futures.
It’s the gift of being conscious -- in the moment -- that we all have a choice about how we want to show up, and what impact we want to have, because we’re always having an impact, whether we know it or not.” -Lady Rayven

“As the poet and mystic Rumi once said, “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” When you feel like you are failing miserably, just focus on the next baby step. Know that if you stumble, someone will come along to take over for you or will carry you over the finish line. You will grow stronger with each baby step. Let your higher power carry you. Let the light enter your wounds. Refuse to be shamed by your trauma. Don’t claim the shame. -Karen Robinson

Another nice thing about this book is that each story has a passage of scripture and a prayer that follows. The chapters are short enough to pick one up and read it before you start your busy day. This is a good devotional book for those looking for a spiritual uplift in their lives.
