Jesus Calling - A Review
I recently received a copy of Sarah Young's devotional book Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence to review from Book Sneeze.
I've never reviewed a devotional before, so it felt slightly odd to me reading more than page at a time. I'm such a rule follower that I felt a bit like I was cheating reading page after page. That of course says more about me than the book - a friend told me once I'd make up new rules just so that I could have more to follow.
As I started through the first few pages, I marked a day that particularly spoke to me, meaning to quote it in my review. Flipping through a few pages later, I moved the marker to another page, then again. This book, with the passage written as if it were a direct message from Jesus to the reader, is full of wonderful words for daily living.
Most importantly, the message inside was beautiful and really spoke to my heart. As a side note I'll also like to say that this particular edition is gorgeous in appearance also. Its leather cover, attached ribbon bookmark, and wonderful message make it a great gift idea. Or certainly it would be something worth getting for yourself and having the daily reminder of God's goodness, grace and mercy.
