Does your happiness depend on someone else’s affection and presence in your life? Are your thoughts consumed by another person? If so, the relationship has become skewed—get help before it becomes a prison! Through thirty-one daily readings with reflection questions and practical action steps, Ellen Mary Dykas helps you to strengthen your relationship with Christ—embracing him as your true refuge—and to cultivate godly relationships with others from a place of confidence and peace.
In the 31-Day Devotionals for Life series, biblical counselors and Bible teachers guide you through Scripture passages that speak to specific situations or struggles, helping you to apply God’s Word to your life in practical ways day after day.
Ellen Mary Dykas (MA, Covenant Theological Seminary) is the women’s ministry coordinator at Harvest USA and the author of Sexual Sanity for Women as well as several mini-books.
“With a counselor’s wisdom and a friend’s sympathy, Dykas brings readers to passages of Scripture that . . . point again and again to the gracious comfort that can be found in Christ alone.”
