Background to Divine Appointments

More editions coming!

As you may know, the SPRING edition of my devotional book based on the Jewish calendar is available in time to start using in correlation with the first month of Nissan, coming up on March 14.

I’ve had inquiries about the rest of the editions so need to explain that the SUMMER, AUTUMN, and WINTER editions are not yet published but will be coming in plenty of time to use them before that season actually occurs. A complete edition of all four seasons is also in the works, including a hardcover version for those who like books on shelves. 

This book began when I was introduced to the impact of the Jewish months back in early 2017. It was the beginning of Nissan, the first month, and I was visiting my sister’s church in Regina. There was a short blurb in the church bulletin and it was also mentioned briefly in the announcements. There is a lot more to the story, but suffice to say, I was intrigued and started doing some reading and research.

I don’t want to sound overly dramatic, but I felt like my mind was blown! I had never really considered any of this, let alone knew anything about the topic. It was like a whole other world was opening up to me. It was a defining moment and I was changed. 

Fast forward a couple of months. A heart attack and subsequent by-pass surgery also changed my life forever. Looking back, I can honestly say I have never felt closer to God than during that time. During my convalescence, I had nothing but time to continue my research and to put into practice the things I was learning. I began journaling about my experiences, following each month’s revelations as I did so. The next year I wondered if I should compile some kind of devotional book. Another year went by as I searched for scriptures to go with each day in the month. And so it went.

Now, four years later, the book is complete. As I say in the introduction, I am not a theologian and I do not claim to be an expert on this topic. I am simply offering what little insight and encouragement I have been given and hope those who choose to dive in will be likewise encouraged.
