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.

Jesus Calling, a 365-day Journaling Devotional, by Sarah Young, Thomas Nelson, 2010, Hardcover, 400 Pages, ISBN-13: 978-1404187856, $16.99

Sarah found truth and a greater intimacy with God while she studied with L’Abri, a Christian community in a “tiny” French village in the Alps. There, surrounded by God’s magnificent creation, Sarah opened “…her heart…” to her Lord and Creator in the “…panorama of unbroken beauty…” around her.

It was there she first uttered the words, “sweet Jesus,” an involunt

This is a daily devotional book. I read it daily and find great comfort in the words written and the bible references that back up the reading. The daily devotion helps me get off to a great start in recognizing the day and the good things to come from that day only, never fretting about yesterday, just learning and moving on. As for tomorrow? I may have dreams, biut they can only be realized if I do what is best today without worries, and work on tomorrow tomorrow.

This is the first time I've read a daily devotional from January 1 to December 31. Jesus Calling was a relatively easy, encouraging read, and it positively impacted my daily walk with Jesus.

This book literally changed my life. I can't recommend it highly enough. It took me quite a while to get used to the format, but the insights kept drawing me back and the beauty. Oh, the beauty.

This book was given to me by a friend. I have never stayed with a devotional book as long as I have this one. I received the copy that has space to journal. This has been very useful. I do not journal every day, but many days devotions are relevant to what I am going through either spiritually or within life and it is good to write my thoughts for that day. It often seems that Ms. Young has been inside my head. Awesome book that I would recommend to anyone.

My friend bought this for me knowing my love of journaling. I've been through it more than once adding comments dating with years. I may have to buy another copy soon! Everyday it felt like that devotion was written specifically for me. My friends and I would send messages as we saw meaning in each other's lives. I have bought this devotional many times for people I know and it is always the same response!

I like the idea of a daily devotional with space for private notes, but after awhile the devotionals just got too repetitive for me. I think I've read about two thirds of it, but I'm going to call it done. I may return to it later, but haven't quite decided whether or not I'll fill out the rest of the entries.

This daily devotional book was given to me as a Door Prize at a ladies group meeting in March. I'm ministered to every time I read a day's reading. Love it and definitely recommend it to everyone, no exception....

A wonderful way to start my day for a year, in fact, I like it so much, I'm going to do it again. Making the morning commitment using a combination of devotion, Bible passage and journaling changes the way I approach my day.

This is a daily devotional written as God speaking with you daily. As I kept my daily private time with my Father, I found each day's topic encouraging and timely. God inspired is how I label Sarah Young's work. This book is definitely a lifetime treasure. Those I've gifted it to have agreed.

“MY PEACE is the treasure of treasures: the pearl of great price. It is an exquisitely costly gift, both for the Giver and the receiver. I purchased this Peace for you with My blood. You receive this gift by trusting Me in the midst of life’s storms. If you have the world’s peace—everything going your way—you don’t seek My unfathomable Peace. Thank Me when things do not go your way, because spiritual blessings come wrapped in trials. Adverse circumstances are normal in a fallen world. Expect them each day. Rejoice in the face of hardship, for I have overcome the world. MATTHEW 13:46 NKJV; JAMES 1:2; JOHN 16:33” 5 likes
“JANUARY 26 GIVE UP THE ILLUSION that you deserve a problem-free life. Part of you is still hungering for the resolution of all difficulties. This is a false hope! As I told My disciples, in the world you will have trouble. Link your hope not to problem solving in this life but to the promise of an eternity of problem-free life in heaven. Instead of seeking perfection in this fallen world, pour your energy into seeking Me: the Perfect One. It is possible to enjoy Me and glorify Me in the midst of adverse circumstances. In fact, My Light shines most brightly through believers who trust Me in the dark. That kind of trust is supernatural: a production of My indwelling Spirit. When things seem all wrong, trust Me anyway. I am much less interested in right circumstances than in right responses to whatever comes your way. JOHN 16:33; PSALM 112:4,” 3 likes
