“BESIDE STILL WATERS: Finding Rest, Refreshment, and Restoration for Your Soul” by Leonie H. Mattison
He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss. That’s where he restores and revives my life. He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness so that I can bring honor to his name (Psalm 23:2-3 TPT).The hurt, the pain, and the trauma experienced as a result of abuse can be detrimental to one’s life, and cause revolving toxic patterns. Leonie H Mattison knows too well the results of living a life of abuse. Being a victim was once her story. But now victory is her reality. Having discovered her personal power within, Leonie learned how to conquer what once conquered her. This devotional is a 21-day journey to freedom. It is a retreat to find your true self, who you were created to be. Break the cycles of abuse and their effects by coming to the still waters of liberation. The world will try to convince you that you are a victim, helpless and powerless, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The Holy Spirit in you empowers you to overcome every obstacle and walk in freedom from your past. Turn the world off, if only for a moment. Draw closer to God and watch the chains fall away as you immerse yourself in the still waters of God’s love. Be empowered by the Holy Spirit to find rest, refreshment, and restoration for your soul.
