Powerful Devotional

Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young, is one of the finest devotionals I have ever had the privilege to read. The entries are both powerful and compelling, but succinct enough to easily fit into a before work schedule. It is so nice to begin my day with this book. It feels as if God is talking to me personally. Many times it has served to calm my anxious thoughts and point me in a right direction. 
Here is one example of how this book re-aligns my thinking ;  "Rest in My Presence, allowing Me to take charge of this day. Do not bolt into the day like a racehorse suddenly released. Instead, walk purposefully with Me, letting Me direct your course one step at a time." So often I get hurried and miss being attentive to Jesus.

I am so thankful to Book Sneeze for allowing me a copy of this book to review. I have much enjoyed reading it and hope to be able to read often in the years to come.
