One of the trends today is to pick one word and focus on it for the entire year. That is somewhat of the premise of this devotional. In the introduction Mr. Morgan tells us how reading 1 Peter 5:7 began his journey of studying the word all, in all of the scriptures. I know that most skip over introductions but in this case don’t, you will be doubly blessed by what he has to say.
The format is simple. Each day is numbered so you can literally start at any point in the year, be it January 1st or July 27th. There is a suggested scripture passage and then a highlighted verse that contains the word all. Following that there is a devotional that pertains to the subject of the highlighted verse.
Mr. Morgan has a very conversational style of writing that I think most will find enjoyable. It would make a nice reading companion at the beginning of your day or right before you lay your head down. I for one enjoy carrying a small Bible and devotional book in my car with me. Like most wives and mothers there are times that I get stranded waiting for a family member. This book was wonderful to read and ponder during those moments.

Robert J. Morgan in his new book “All To Jesus” published by B&H Publishing Group gives us a year of devotions.
From the back cover: Spend 365 Days — All Year — in the “Alls” of Scripture
You’d be surprised how often the word “all” appears in the Bible—thousands of times, actually. With each description of God’s all-encompassing promises and blessings, with each loving appeal for our full and total surrender, His reputation grows larger before our eyes.We see again what He can do. We see again who we can be. Now remind yourself of these life-changing truths every single day.From the acclaimed author of Then Sings My Soul comes this choice daily sampling of God’s immeasurable power and His keen attention to detail. Truly, He is all you need. All year long.
Why do we need a new daily devotional? Most of us need help to focus our attention. There are so many things that vie for our attention and we juggle so many that, sometimes, we lose sight of what really is important. So we need this devotional to help calm and center us. We can use this in the morning to help focus us on God and His plans for us rather than our plans for the day. We can use this in the afternoon to help re-energize us when the activities of the day have drained us of our energy. We can use this in the evening when we are weary from the world’s battering and we need rest and peace in God. “All To Jesus” is not a time-consuming read. Each day starts with scripture, followed by the devotional. They are only a page or less in length but they are oh so helpful to properly channel our energies in the right direction. If we use these daily devotionals correctly we will all be the better for it.
