An Encouraging Devotional!!

The new devotional by Sarah Young has a specific purpose and totally accomplished its goal.  Jesus Calling: 50 Devotions for Encouragement, is a short but very powerful devotional.  There are 50 different devotions in this short book.  Each devotion is easy to read, taking maybe 1-2 minutes, yet they are very powerfully written.

In this devotion, Sarah Young writes this devotion as if Jesus, Himself were talking to the reader.  She writes from the perspective of Jesus speaking to the reader, using "I, Me, Mine, My" when Jesus is speaking.

An example of one devotion which I found powerful was ~
I Am Christ in you, the hope of glory.  The One who walks beside you, holding you by your hand, is the same One who lives within you.  This is a deep, unfathomable mystery.  You and I are intertwined in an intimacy involving every fiber of your being.  The Light of My Presence shines within you, as  well as upon you.  I am in you; and you are in Me; therefore nothing in heaven or on earth can separate you from Me!
There was one more paragraph which followed and that is it for the day, but it's powerful writing and if the reader is willing, should draw you deeper and closer to Christ.

Overall, this is a powerful devotional.  I highly recommend it.

I received this book from booklookbloggers in exchange for an honest review.
