Streams in the Desert - A Review

I enjoy using a daily devotional as part of my personal time with God each day. The best one I’ve found, and have been using since 1997 is, Streams in the Desert, by Mrs. Charles Cowman. This devotional classic was first published in 1925.

Letty Cowman and her husband were missionaries to China. Her husband was diagnosed with cancer and they returned to the United States where she cared for him six years until his death.

Streams in the Desert is the result of that difficult period. Letty’s rich wisdom and a compilation of the many encouragements received during that time, speaks to the depths of what every person struggles with when walking through the hard places.

My copy of The Stream’s Edge is underlined, highlighted, dated in the margins and falling apart in the binding—A true testimony of its value in my walk with the Lord.

I highly recommend this timeless resource. It will add a rich dimension to your discovery of God’s presence and work in your own life’s journey.

Do you have a source for daily devotional reading each day? How has it encouraged you during a difficult time?
