Deeply Loved by Keri Wyatt (Final Thoughts)

Deeply Loved: 40 Ways in 40 Days to Experience the Heart of Jesus by Keri Wyatt Kent

(I received this book for review purposes.)

Product Details

I have enjoyed the past 40 days.  I have become more at peace with myself and I have become closer with Jesus.  Here are my favorite thoughts from each day.

“Chapter 1: An Only Child”

  • God is always saying, “I sure do love R…”

“Chapter Two: Walking with the Jews”.

  • Pretend Jesus is with me all day long and He gives me peace and security

“Chapter Three: Slow Down”

  • Can I slow the pace of my life?  My family doesn’t participate in a lot of activities outside of the house.  We could work on spending less time with technology.

“Chapter 4: Review of the Day”

Where did I see God?

  • I saw God with my children’s kindness towards each other.

“Day 5: Waking”

  • I need to always wake up in the morning and pray.  I need to ask Jesus to be with me during the day.

“Day 6: Through the Day”

  • I need to set up times throughout the day to pray. 

“Day 7: Prayer of Adoration”

  • I need to use some verses from Psalms to help with prayers of adoration, like Psalm 8.

“Day 8: Companion”

  • I need to find a person to grow spiritually deeper with. 

“Day 9: Alone”

  • I need to be still and quiet with Jesus for an hour, no technology.

“Day 10: Quiet”

  • Knowing how to be quiet will help me become a better listener.

“Day 11: Meditate on the Promise of God”

  • My favorite John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you.” (NIV)

“Day 12: With”

  • I needed to read the Gospels.

“Day 13: Distracted”

  • What distracts me from Jesus- technology and worry.

“Day 14: Show Me”

  • This relates to Mark 9 and desperate situations.  Fortunately I do not have a desperate situation in my life right now.

“Day 15: The Blues”

  • Psalm 42 is a great psalm for those who are lamenting and needing Jesus right then in their lives.  I did not have anything to lament about.

“Day 16: Creation”

  • I need to pay more attention to nature in the city as much as I do in the country, because I need to find the joy in creation.

“Day 17: Direction”

  • What decisions I am needing to make and how I can weigh the pros of each. 

“Day 18: Intercession”

  • I needed to make a list of people who need praying for and pray for them.

“Day 19: Simplicity”

  • I like simplicity and I want to pass it onto my my family.

“Day 20:Self-examination”

  • Galatians 5:22-23- from these verses I know we need to have love, peace, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

“Day 21:Confession”

  • I need to give my kids more grace for their mistakes.

“Day 22: Gratitude”

  • I need to always find all the little things and be grateful for them and more.

“Day 23: Listen”

  • I know Jesus’ voice and I recognize it, because it is my head, nudging.

“Day 24: Vulnerable”

  • Jesus wants to protect us, He prayed for me, Jesus used his life to reveal God,  and Jesus protected the disciples.

“Day 25: Hurry”

  • Lord, help me focus and have patience.

“Day 26: BFFS”

  • I would love to feel love and peace from Jesus.  To be able to have a great relationship with Jesus, I need to actively read his word and get rid of things in life, like technology, that are preventing me from having a full relationship with him. 

“Day 27: Sabbath”

  • My husband, children, and I actively participate in the Sabbath.  It is a wonderful day for recharging ourselves and enjoying what God has provided for us.

“Day 28: Trust”

  • I am grateful for my family, the sun when it shines, precipitation, spring coming, the Sabbath, books, freedom, and homeschooling.  These are just a few of the things I am thankful for.

“Day 29: Beloved”

  • There is no risk in being God’s beloved. 

“Day 30: Redeemed”

  • God promised everything for us, we need not ever worry.

“Day 31: Remember”

  • I need to work on memorizing the Lord’s words, it shall begin with Psalm 27. 

“Day 32: Daddy”

  • I need to pray to God to thank him for my parents and to help me be the parent I need to be to help my children grow properly.

“Day 33: Serve”

  • When I go through a day of serving people secretly it makes me happy and it makes them happy when they realize when something was done for them.

“Day 34: Doubt”

  • My doubt comes in the form of tithing.  I always feel that if we give away our money then we won’t have any money to pay bills and buy food.  I know that isn’t true, but it is an area where I have great doubt. 

“Day 35: Pray”

  • I have read Psalm 5, the required reading, and I have since changed my mind.  I can pray using the scriptures!

“Day 36: Ambassador”

  • I did what I could to think of others, by putting them first and helping them in the way that Jesus would.

“Day 37: Abide”

  • I have noticed that when I abide in Christ, I treat others with more kindness and love. 

“Day 38: Restore Our Sight”

  • I read Matthew 20:31-33 and I would like Jesus to give me peace. 

“Day 39: Mystery of Growth”

  • I have enjoyed this book immensely.  I do feel that I have grown.  I am now more patient.  I also pay more attention to Jesus and what he is wanting me to do.

“Day 40: Celebration”

  • It is now time to celebrate the end of my journey!  There are many ways to do it.  I am not sure how I am going to do it, but I think I will begin by being with Jesus more!
