Peace in His Presence: Jesus Calling by Sarah Young {Devotional Bundle Review and GIVEAWAY}

Pin It

As a Christian, I know Jesus is listening and speaks to my heart, but have you ever had one of those days when you need a little extra encouragement from Him? I know this happens to many, if not most Christians at some moment in their life. It's nice to be able to pick up the Bible and read the Word, knowing that a message just may be waiting for us. Then there are additional resources that offer a little extra motivation and guidance – a book, for instance, like Jesus Calling.




ABOUT JESUS CALLING:
After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior's voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her—and many others around the world. In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope. Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace.

Jesus is calling out to you in the same way. Maybe you share the author’s need for a great sense of “God with you”. Or perhaps Jesus seems distant without you knowing why. Or maybe you have wandered farther from Him that you ever imagined you would. Here is a year’s worth of daily readings from Young’s journals to bring you closer to Christ and move your time with Him from monologue to a dialogue. Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. Do you hear Him calling?


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Sarah Young’s devotional writings are personal reflections from her daily quiet time of Bible reading, praying, and writing in prayer journals. With sales of more than 15 million books worldwide, Jesus Calling® has appeared on all major bestseller lists. Sarah’s writings include Jesus Calling®, Jesus Today®, Jesus Lives™, Dear Jesus, Jesus Calling® for Little Ones, Jesus Calling® Bible Storybook, Jesus Calling®: 365 Devotions for Kids, and Peace in His Presence -- each encouraging readers in their journey toward intimacy with Christ. Sarah and her husband were missionaries in Japan and Australia for many years. They currently live in the United States.


This is one devotional book that I just can't seem to put down. The title of this book is fitting, since the words are written in such a way that Jesus is actually speaking directly to you. It's truly amazing how the author accomplished this – you can definitely tell Jesus was speaking to her and her heart as she wrote this.

The book is on the more compact side, so not only can you read it at home, but you can bring it along with you wherever you may go. There are 365 devotions inside, one for each day of the year. The daily messages are short and sweet, but if you're like me, you'll find it a bit difficult to stop on just one day. Each message has such a powerful impact that you'll feel as though Jesus is actually sitting right there with you, offering you advice and peace for the day (or night). What an amazing feeling!

If you've been following my blog for the past year, you may remember my review of Jesus Calling for Little Ones, which is a preschool-age version of this amazing devotional. Even better, Sara Young had also created another version of Jesus Calling, especially made for older children. Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids is very similar to the adult version, offering the same inspiring messages each day, but wonderfully adapted to accommodate a younger reading age.



ABOUT JESUS CALLING: 365 DEVOTIONS FOR KIDS:
Devotions written as if Jesus is speaking directly to a child's heart. Based on her original Jesus Calling, this version has been adapted in a language and fashion that kids and tweens can relate to their everyday lives.

After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down what she believed He was saying to her through Scripture. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her devotionals. They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers, and now young readers, with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.


Jesus Calling offers a reading experience like none that I've ever had. Accompanying this with my Bible readings really provides that extra bit of quiet one on one time with Jesus. I also look forward to gifting Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids to my son when he gets a bit older, so that he can enjoy the same uplifting reading experience for himself. For now, he gets to enjoy Jesus Calling for Little Ones.

I am happy to announce another wonderful giveaway that I am hosting! One winner will receive both Jesus Calling and Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids! This comes as a bundle pack, so the winner will be receiving two books.
