If you are needing a good devotional, this is it! My mom bought this for Eric sometime ago & some others I know really like it also. I had to wait a couple weeks for Mardel's to get any in because they were out for awhile.
It is written by Sarah Young. "After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to "listen" to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. It was awkward at first, but gradually her journaling changed from monologue to dialogue. She knew her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, but they were helping her grow closer to God. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her messages. They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless you with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure."
The book is worded as if Jesus is saying the words to you. Every day the devotion is so fitting for me, especially on topics of trust & faith. There are 2-4 verse references at the end that relate to that day's devotion. Its short & sweet & to the point. There is also a journal that goes with it if you wanted to go more in depth.
I highly recommend this to have at work, travel with, or have it at home to reference daily.
Eric & I were married in Sept 2008 and we live in Tulsa. After a long 3 years of waiting, our sweet Baby Jack was born May 30, 2013. He is our best buddy & has brought so much joy to our family. We have a Shih-tzu, Capone, who is very spoiled & we adore him :) We are loving life and the everyday joys that go with it! God has truly blessed us and we are so grateful!
