Streams in the Desert is a great classic devotion by L.B. Cowman initially published in 1925. Mrs L.B. Cowman was a missionary in China and Japan between 1901 and 1917. Streams in the desert was inspired both by this time, and as she looked after her dying husband for six years.
Streams in the Desert is renowned for being perfect for helping you when you are spiritually dry and when you need to draw closer to God. It is not just L.B. Cowman’s writings though, and comprises daily reading taken from the bible, hymns, poems and the writings of many Christians.
As with the other classic devotions that are still read today, it is beautifully rich and certainly not “bible-lite”.

Here is an excerpt from the 1st January:
All our supply is to come from the Lord. Here are springs that shall never dry; here are fountains and streams that shall never be cut off. Here, anxious one, is the gracious pledge of the heavenly Father. If He be the source of our mercies they can never fail us. No heat, no drought can parch that river, “the streams whereof make glad the city of God.
