I recently had the opportunity to review Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. This book is a collection of writings from her time spent as a missionary. Sarah started writing down what she believed God was saying to her. As a result of this she created this devotional. It contains a devotion for every day of the year.
The book is titled Jesus calling because each devotion is written as though Jesus is speaking to you. The devotions are short and easy to read. Sarah also lists the verses in the Bible which relate to that days devotion.
I have enjoyed reading through these daily devotions. It seems as though each reading relates to me or is something I needed to hear. When I start the day reading a devotional and the accompanying Bible verses, my day seems to go so much better!
This is the first devotional I have ever used aside from those they give me at church. However, if you are looking for a devotional, this would be a great choice. I think this book would also make a great gift for someone.
