My Review:  This is a small, not pocket sized book, that is filled with discovering the loving arms of God's peace.  31 days is about one month so there is a read for each day of the month.  Each chapter is headed by a number; for example, Day 2 . . . with a title underneath the number. . . "He Can More Than Satisfy Me."  Each chapter is about two to four pages in length giving the reader a scripture reference and then Ruth Myers expounds on the title/thought.  Day 2 has the scripture, "This is real love,' we read in John 4:10. 'It is not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins" (NLT).  Ms. Myers then expounds on the real love of God.  I love this from Day 2, "If we want real love, ideal love, perfect love, God's heart is where to find it.  It's the only love big enough to meet the deep needs in your life and mine."  Love that thought!  
There is also a mini story about a widow and her children.  Ms. Myers uses this mini story as an illustration to go along with the verse.  
Ms. Myers draws form her intimate life with God.  Drawing from her well of deep thoughts and prayers she extends to us the ideal love . . . the true love of our Father.
This is a wonderful 5 star book for a devotional to go along with your daily Bible reading.
This is one of those books that makes a perfect gift for Valentine's Day or to place in an Easter basket.  It would also make a wonderful "encouragement card" for a lonely or suffering person in your circle of friends.
Take time to draw near to God and He will draw near to you!
