The Cactus Devotional
By Suzanne Thomas
The cactus is one of the world’s toughest plants, built to withstand any sort of heat. In The Cactus Devotional – Facing All Conditions With God, author Suzanne Thomas uniquely compares the cactus to that of our spiritual lives with forty powerful lessons.
We are living in spiritually dry and uncertain times in a world that is becoming more and more focused on self. The humanistic culture advocates ‘the self’ as the answer to all of life’s passions, problems and pursuits, with self- belief replacing belief in God. The cactus is a tough plant that God has uniquely designed to survive hard and hostile times and there are many lessons we can learn from this tenacious plant.
These 40 spiritual lessons remind readers to focus on God in the midst of a changing and challenging terrain. Each lesson is rooted in God’s truth and the Biblical worldview as we look at facing tough times, contentment, meaning, hope, beauty, thorns, wounds and belonging together with the Lord. Every lesson includes relevant and encouraging Bible verses and digs deeper questions to support readers to reflect on their own lives as they grow and mature spiritually.
