“I highly recommend Gaylyn’s treasures taken straight from the Scriptures! Gaylyn’s compilation of the Word of God with applications on ‘How God Sees You’ is vital for each of us. As you and I spend daily time in this resource, we will be reminded afresh of who we are in Christ. The result will be evidenced in our lives by greater cleansing, intimacy and power with our Lord. You will relish the time you spend sitting with Him and pondering these passages and principles. Get ready for wonderful times of refreshing from the Holy Spirit!”
—Camilla Leathers Seabolt. Former Executive Director for Community Bible Study (1997–2013)
“I truly believe in the utmost importance of spending daily time with the Lord in prayer and in His Word. The Surprising Joy of Discovering How God Sees You is an incredible resource for seeking and connecting with the heart of God during those daily times. Filled with Scripture, insightful thoughts, and probing questions, this book will deepen your understanding and awareness of God’s love for you, help you discover who you are in Him, and guide you in “walking out” that identity from day to day. Every page of Gaylyn’s work is, as always, marked with her wisdom, encouraging spirit, and genuine love for the reader. This is a book I will be coming back to for years to come.”
—Dick Eastman, International President of Every Home for Christ (from the foreword)
“Until we understand our true identity as a child of God, we will never feel whole. Working on this book gave me a new appreciation for who I am in Christ. It taught me that God is the missing piece to everything that we lack. To the fatherless, He is a father. To the weak, He is strength. In this way, the book can be useful to anyone who feels inadequate in some form or another. As a teenager in this world of media and persuasion, I often feel less than. By learning my birthright in God’s kingdom, I realized that I have access to everything that He is. My power lies in Him; therefore I am capable of anything.”
—Kacie Linamen, Teenager and College Student
“Gaylyn Williams presents in this book an eternal treasure chest of who God is and how He desires to spiritually refreshen us. It’s a great book to encourage you on your walk with the Lord.”
—Steve Koeppen, President, Living Way Ministries, Colorado Springs
“As ever, Gaylyn’s newest guide to applying specific Scripture portions to life is both practical and specific. Use these daily devotionals as a guide for your quiet time with Jesus or as a script for a small group studying the Bible together. Keeping a journal of your responses could be useful for later reference. However you choose to use it, this book of devotionals is bound to bless you, those you live with and those you minister to.”
—Sandra T. Auer, Cru Human Resources Specialist and Counselor
“Just being able to do the research and looking up verses allowed me to finally realize who I am in Christ. The biggest benefit was just that, knowing who I am in Christ based on what the Word said. Another benefit was doing the research knowing that all of this was going to be put into a book. It allowed me to dig into the Word more.”
—Rubin Paxton, Ministry Partner
