Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
"Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young is filled with spiritually practical, simple steps for the mature Christian or babe in Christ. Each devotional ends with a scripture or scriptures. This addition of scriptures to the author's thoughts always helps me in a better meditation. The scriptures are like a memory tool for me.
The devotions for each day and month are reality based. For example, we shouldn't expect a perfect day everyday just because we have chosen to live the way that the Lord has chosen for mankind. Some days are horrible. Sarah Young calls these days "the sludge of the fallen world." Sarah Young in "Jesus Calling" gently guides us in ways to share an intimacy with God. I look forward to growing and changing through the use of this devotional. It is a God sent gift.
Also, the book is small and very attractive. That means it can go with me anywhere. It is just one more added benefit.
