Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace In His Presence. Sarah Young. Thomas Nelson. July 2010. Imitation Leather. 400 pages.
Jesus Calling is a 365 day devotional written by Sarah Young. As she set aside time each morning to just listen to God, Sarah wrote everything she felt He was telling her in a prayer journal. Those journal entries were turned into this beautiful devotional, now available in deluxe edition. Written in the first person, with "I" "me" and "mine" referring to Jesus, it is as if He is speaking directly to you. And just to clarify, Young adds in the introduction, "The Bible is, of course, the only inerrant Word of God; my writings must be consistent with that unchanging standard." Each devotion is brief, about a paragraph or two, ending with a scripture reference so you get right back to God's Word. This devotional is so different from any I've ever read before. I love it when the topic for the day is exactly what I needed to read. The promises in scripture are made more personal through this small, inspirational book. With it's leather engraved cover that just adds to the beauty of this entire devotional, this would make a perfect gift for any occasion.
