Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

I blog for Booksneeze and really appreciate receiving this book.  This is a 365 day devotional and is excellent. I hesitated ordering it, because I have so many devotionals but this is unique.  It is written as if Jesus Himself is speaking directly to you.  It offers words of hope, encouragement, comfort, and reasurrance. I would just feel peace come over me as I read each page. 

Here is a sample from May 21. “I, The Creator of the universe, am with you and for you.  What more could you need? When you feel some lack, it is because you are not connecting with Me at a deep level. I offer abundant Life; your part is to trust Me, refusing to worry about anything. It is not so much adverse events that make you anxious as it is your thoughts about those events. Your mind engages in efforts to take control of a situation, to bring about the result you desire. Your thoughts close in on the problem like ravenous wolves.  Determined to make things go your way, you forget that I am in charge of your life.  The only remedy is to switch your focus from the problem to My Presence. Stop all your striving, and watch to see what I will do. I am the Lord!”

I was comforted from reading each day’s devotion and I plan on giving this book to family and friends for gifts. I am so thankful that Booksneeze gave me the opportunity to read it. I will be using it for years to come.
