Pebbles is a wonderful, reflective collection of devotionals with modern-day parables suitable for readers in their mid-teens written by one of our Write2Ignite bloggers, Leah Meahl. Girl readers in particular may be more inclined to draw similarities between their everyday life situations and the parables. It is particularly helpful to Christians who desire to apply and learn deep spiritual principles to their walk with Christ.
One of the most memorable parables was the twist on the parable of the sower and how God cares so deeply for each one of His children. It gave me a deeper appreciation of how we as believers need to keep walking and persevere in seeking God. One of the lessons I learned from this parable was that God is patient with us and even when we fail him through our own weaknesses, he is still in full control of our lives. In addition, the comfort that God is watching over us to enable us to succeed and fulfill the calling that he has placed on us as believers.
Another interesting parable is the story of how a boy is treated by two brothers named Fear and Terror and the insights that are offered about how to overcome these fears. 2 Tim 1:7 is a verse that was mentioned in the scriptural reference. I hold onto that verse dearly especially in the fight against fears that our invisible enemy throws at us. I think this aspect of dealing with fear is one that believers struggle with but can overcome through relying only on the Holy Spirit’s power.
There are many lessons to learn and apply from these devotionals as they are important reminders to stand firm and trust God in the middle of challenging circumstances. There are application questions at the end of each devotional which draw the reader deeper into the main spiritual lessons and biblical references.
