"Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young

This little book is a devotional book for each day of the year written from the journals of a young modern day missionary by the name of
Sarah Young. The book is in hard book form with a very appealing cover and is small enough to carry in your purse or a book bag. It is 382 pages long with an introduction from the author explaining how and why this book was written. This book came to be as Sarah went about her day to day travels and became aware of her Savior talking to her in a still, small voice on a daily basis.

I really enjoy this book as part of my devotional time because it demonstrates a God that does know us intimately. It is written in the context as if Jesus himself is speaking directly to me. Many of the writings are pertinent to events in my own life at present. At the end of each day is scripture context that go along with Sarah's writings for that day. This scripture context is particularly helpful if you are interested in scripture memorization or if you just need a Word of encouragement for the day.

Not only is this book a great addition to your own daily devotional reading but would make a great gift for that special someone.
