Love this devotion. I've used the book for years. Awesome to see it in digital form!! It would be great if there were more options for sharing a specific devotion such as through messenger or message!

Re Streams in the Desert ...

simply trusting....

PLEASE, PLEASE do something to ALLOW ME TO SHARE THE READINGS AT CERTAIN TIMES, WITH OTHERS....who really are helped and blessed by this reading/s!
I’m greatly disappointed that you do NOT enable the reader to SHARE the blessings.
I have a high rating for Streams, ...but it loses its value to me when I am not allowed to SHARE.
Yes you DO have the share button, ...but it is NOT able to come up with the ACTION of sharing/ sending.
Thank you.

Hope in this season

God's teardrop

This is exactly what I need to read as the season I am in is the desert. It helps with changing my perspective.
