Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

Enjoying Peace in His Presence

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.

My Review:
While I was in the hospital (for seventy days, following two surgeries) a friend visited me and gave me a copy of this small book. It is a perfect devotional--especially for someone with a limited amount of ability to concentrate.

Each day, one page represents Jesus speaking to the reader, with verses taken from the Bible and translated into modern language.

I give this one a BIG thumbs up!
