New Devotional Book!

God's Promises of LoveGod’s Promises of Love: 30 Christian Devotions about God’s Love and Acceptance

I have released my second book, God’s Promises of Love.

God understands your pain.

We go through so much difficulty in our lives — stress because of work, anguish from our relationships, negativity from our self-hatred and judgment. We wonder how we’ll ever cope.

God promises love and healing in all our circumstances. God sees every single thing that happens to us — our every worry and concern — and is right by our side in what we go through. There’s no situation that God can’t manage. He’ll help us when we’re distressed. He’ll help us when we’re not coping. He’ll help us when we can’t help ourselves.

God’s Promises of Love is the follow up to Mona’s successful first devotional, The Nature of God. Continue your journey on the path to discover God’s true love and acceptance.

Christmas Decorations

Merry Christmas everyone! I know it’s a little early, but I’m certainly looking forward to it.

Mona Hanna Devotions has a new look! I’ve updated the blog theme, because I felt it was due for a change. All the same features are there, just set out differently.

I’ve set one of my popular devotions to music: What God Has Done With His Love. You can view this on Youtube.

Thanks everyone! Love, Mona.

God is Our Closest Friend

I’m an ordinary person. Sometimes I’m selfish and unkind. Sometimes I want to put myself first. When I work, I want to succeed, and my entire focus will be on my work at that time. I don’t always want to give. My heart isn’t always pure. I’m an ordinary person. And my heart is ordinary.

God isn’t disappointed in me, because of this. God looks at me fondly. He looks at me with love and kindness. He isn’t disappointed in me, wishing my heart were purer, wishing I was kinder and more selfless. God loves and accepts me as I am.

I’ve lately thought of God as a best friend, not just a loving parent. If you imagine a best friend, they sympathize with what you’re going through. They won’t say: “You should be more selfless. You should think about that differently. You’re not good enough.”

If your best friend spoke to you that way, you wouldn’t want to be around them anymore, because they wouldn’t be offering love and support. God isn’t like this. He sits with us, and, like a true friend, completely understands our heart and soul. He understands when we’re hurt and frustrated. He understands our desire to be selfish sometimes. He understands, and doesn’t judge us.

God loves us, completely. When we realize God is completely loving, accepting and kind — when we realize he loves us, as we are — we feel so much closer to him. When we feel closer to him, we naturally want to do things to make him happy. Becoming a kinder, more giving person doesn’t come from guilt, or being told we should be different. Becoming kinder comes from our heart. Comes from our heart, when it’s filled with love. God’s love.

Don’t ever feel God’s standing over you, wishing you would become more selfless and behave differently. God loves and accepts you as you are. He sees everything we’re going through — every single detail — and is completely understanding and sympathetic. Even if we’re going through dark things. Even if we’ve done dark things. God will never walk away from us. He never would, and never will.

God loves us, as we are. He understands. He forgives every bad thing we’ve ever done. He’ll never leave us. He loves us.

The Nature of God Released in Paperback!

The Nature of GodA book that will bring your heart closer to God.

The Nature of God contains 50 Christian devotions, focusing on God’s true love and acceptance of us. The devotions portray God’s kindness, sweetness, grace, mercy and forgiveness.

These devotions break down the notion that God judges us, and has strict requirements for how we should think, feel and behave. Mona’s stance is that God loves us like a parent loves their child, with the same intimacy and compassion that a loving parent would have. Immerse yourself in heart-warming declarations of God’s love, and remind yourself of the true nature of God.

Reviews

God’s Love For Us ***** This book of devotionals will offer solace to those who feel confused, lost or separated from God. The author speaks from her heart, making each entry sound genuine. She promises God’s presence and ongoing love in any circumstance and presents her views in a well-written manner that makes them easy to understand and believe. I came away with the feeling that God’s love is not dependent on my behavior – good or bad. I especially liked her statement that God loved me first, before I became a Christian. I’ll be reading this book of devotionals more than once.” Diane Adams, Amazon.com
