Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing - Sally Lloyd-Jones

Amazon labels the book’s age range as six to ten years. One reviewer suggests you could buy it for yourself if you sneak it out of the shop in a bag.

But don’t hide this book in a carrier bag. Because what ever happened to entering the kingdom as a child? (Luke 18:17)

I have enthusiastically thrust Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing into the hands of more ‘grown ups’ than any other devotional book. No carrier bag required.

Here’s why.

God’s greatness

In each devotional Lloyd-Jones reminds you of God’s character. His loving, fatherly care. His awesome, creative power. His forgiveness of us in Christ.

God is great and deserving of our praise (Psalm 145:3). This book will cause you to put it down and do just that.

All about Jesus

Lloyd-Jones beautifully tells the whole story of the Bible. Reflecting on Psalm 73:26 she writes:

BUT GOD! When everything looks like it’s over, when there’s no hope - But God! Adam and Eve left the garden. But God whispered a promise to them. A flood was coming. But God remembered Noah. We were helpless, but God showed his great love for us by sending Christ.

These beautiful truths are enough to make our hearts sing. But Thoughts goes one step further, illuminating each beautiful truth with a beautiful illustration. 

Go bag-free

When I feel tired and weary and need reminding of what Jesus has achieved for me, Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing does what it says on the tin.

So carry your copy bag-free. Maybe even go wild and buy a copy for a kid or two.
