Book Review - He Holds My Hand by Carol Kent


When Carol Kent’s son was sentenced to life in prison without parole, Carol was consumed with grief, sadness, and despair. She was distraught wondering why God permitted this to happen. She had prayed for her son since he was a small child. He had been raised with biblical principles and daily prayer. As Carol tried to make sense of everything, she couldn’t help asking, Where’s God when it hurts so much?

In the middle of her sorrow, Carol turned to the place where she had always gone for comfort—the Bible. She was desperate to hear God’s voice. She soon discovered that the best way for her to “listen” to His voice was to meditate on…

Each and every devotion in this beautiful book speaks to my heart! I have always loved the writing and speaking of Carol Kent and this devotional is extraordinary.

She writes from the point of view of God speaking to us. Each devotional is Biblical and encouraging. There is a theme for each day, an encouraging quote, the devotional and finally the Scripture the devotional is based on. 

October 30th’s devotion really spoke to my heart. It’s on Tenderness and she shares how when others hurt us we put a wall up so we don’t get hurt. However, sometimes we can extend that wall against God and not allow Him to get close either. He understands our hurts though and wants us to hold His hand through our road together. This is based on James 5:11. Isn’t this just so reassuring and comforting?

The whole book is like this. I have highlighted and made notes throughout this devotion and I very rarely do that with my other devotionals. This one is just that special.

I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
