God Glimpses from the Jewelry Box :  Becoming Jewels God Can Use

   
Author: Michelle Cox, John Perrodin 

What is in your jewelry box? A love letter, lock of hair, watch, or safety pin? Did you know that God’s fingerprints—evidence of His presence—can be found there as well? We can uncover some amazing spiritual lessons tucked between our pearls, earrings, and silver bracelets.
 
Sometimes we act as if God is distant, but God glimpses are present in every aspect of our lives. We just have to look for them. Take a trip through thirty items in a jewelry box and discover encouragement, inspiration, and confirmation that God is so close we can reach out and touch Him.
 
Be bling for the King. Look for God glimpses in your jewelry box and shine for Jesus.
 
Review:   
From the time I was a tiny girl, I had a fascination with jewelry. I spent hours going through both my mother and my grandmother’s jewelry boxes—each piece telling a story. Michelle and John have captured just that, the reminiscent feeling of pouring through those boxes. I will not be able to look at my own jewelry box the same. Instead of glitz and bling, I now see the fingerprints of God and my life story. This book will be my go-to gift for all my girlfriends. This is a “curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee” feel-good book. Now I’m going to accessorize, accessorize, and sparkle for Jesus!

God Glimpses from the Jewelry Box is a lovely collection of devotions designed to help readers find the jewels hidden in everyday life. I especially like the "Jewelry Insurance Inventory Form” at the end of each chapter that asks readers to consider where their treasure is, and encourages them to store up treasures in heaven—those that will never lose their value. A jewel of a book!

If there is one thing I hold dear in my heart, it's the heirloom jewelry in my jewelry box ... not necessarily for the monetary value, but because of the stories my mother shared with me as she showed them to me back when they took up residence in the velvety recesses of her own jewelry box. But even more important than the jewelry passed down from great-great grandmothers, great-aunts, grandmothers, and my own mother is the legacy of being a woman after God's heart, which they also passed on to me. Within the words of this book, Michelle Cox has brilliantly woven the joy of the bling with the truth of the jewels, and the high value of God glimpses from the jewelry box.

My friend, author Michelle Cox who wears “bling for the King,” has written a sparkling new devotional God Glimpses from the Jewelry Box that will perfectly fit anyone who loves to shine! Dig in and discover the treasures that are sometimes hidden under tarnished heirloom silver, or the tossed aside strand of priceless pearls. Though you wear your charm bracelet every day, did you ever think of each charm as a memento of God’s faithfulness? Cox takes us through thirty different kinds of jewelry, inserting fascinating stories and prompting us to ask questions of our heart and soul in the process. Who knew that a pocket watch and earrings could spur us on to greater commitment to God who is the Creator of all true jewels? I greatly enjoyed this devotional and highly recommend it for those who, like me, fill half our luggage with statement necklaces!
