My hidden thoughts seen transparently and answered by Jesus

An awesome encouraging daily read. The things I've thought or worried about are common to all men. Jesus, the lover of these weak and self sufficient children that we are, speaks to the issues we face. He always answers in a sweet convicting uplifting way.
Great, concise meditations and prayers based heavily on biblical references. Very relatable and accessible for readers.
"From your heart's deepest cry to life's joyful praises, you can bring every thing to Jesus! come confidently into His presence. Find out what He has to say about your situation." Very good read.
Wow. I love what God is doing in my life fresh and new during and after reading Sarah Young 's books. New perspective is definitely causing new growth in me.
A beautifully written devotional drawing upon Scripture and drawing me to Scripture...conversation with my God.

“Beloved, it helps to have an eternal perspective. If your life on earth were all there is, it might be reasonable to run from adversity and seek a life of pleasure. However, your earthly lifespan is miniscule, compared with the Glory that awaits you in heaven. A large part of learning to trust Me is viewing your life through this big-picture perspective. Your openness to accepting adversity as blessing shows that you are indeed learning to trust Me more. Your anticipation of good outcomes in the midst of hard times is a profound form of trust. Remember that the evil one attacks you continually with burning arrows of accusation. If you use your shield of faith skillfully, you can stop those missiles and extinguish their flames. Even if some of the arrows find their mark and wound you, do not despair. I am the Great Physician: My loving Presence can both heal your wounds and train you to trust Me more.” 1 likes
“Instead of striving for a predictable, safe lifestyle, seek to know Me in greater depth and breadth. I want to make your life a glorious adventure, but you must stop clinging to old ways.” 0 likes
