My Spiritual life has been suffering so much lately.. I won't go into details, but I haven't been to church in well over 6 months. I have been missing and longing for that connection with God. When I cracked open this devotional, from the first page, every verse has been so helpful. Tears ran from my cheek as I read the very first devotional. It is exactly what I needed. There is a devotional for each day by date. I never can seem to read them that way. I always seem to start with Jan. 1 even though it's almost June. Mrs. Young really speaks from her heart and has done a beautiful job writing this devotional. It reads the way I would personally talk to God. I think it is absolutely wonderful. 5 stars... buy worthy.

A Great Devotional Jesus Calling Seeking Peace In His Presence By Sarah Young This book is a devotional to be read throughout the year, but I cheated and read a lot of it over the last few weeks. Normally I don't like gift books because they tend to be superficial and useless, and deviotionals have left me flat as well. This book excels in both areas and was a great surprise. For starters, it's beautifully made and should last for generations if cared for. It feels good in your hand and is small enough to read, but the type is nice to look at and large enough to read easily. The text is written in the first person, from the person of Jesus. I'm not sure what I think of this to be honest. I'd be scared to do it. But Young claims that these messages came to her during her daily quiet time with Jesus and the messages are theologically sound, backed up by Scripture. And it works for me. Each message reinforces what I know from Scripture, but having it presented to me as if the Lord were telling me these things makes reading each day more profound. It's hard to explain but I look forward to reading it each day. I reccomend this to someone looking for an excellent devotional or even as a gift to someone that wants to understand Scripture more easily. (This was a promotional copy from Thomas Nelson. That said, I give honest reviews.)

This is a wonderful daily devotional, a little book that is amazingly spirit-filled with the Lord speaking deep into your soul! It brought me deep peace and joy. It is beneficial and exciting to first read how Sarah Young came to write JESUS CALLING, how her daily discussion with Christ turned into dialogue. Read this slowly and purposefully, as she suggests. Great gift book!

If you've ever just wondered, "How can God expect me to get through this day?!" you need to get this book. It's a devotional book that will teach you about the bigger plan God purposed in His heart for all people to seem Him, His love, and then spread it through a fallen creation. It's full of praise, prayer, and petition to God for a discerning mind and heart throughout the year. Daily lessons are short enough to read on-the-go, but encouraging and inspiring enough to help you make it through your day with a cheerful and thankful heart. Read the introduction if you get this book - it's meaningful to the context of her words.

This is a very encouraging, gentle devotional. The 365 daily devotions are written in first person - God speaking to the reader and encouraging them to put aside their worries and concerns and focus on Him. Each day contains a brief 2 paragraph devotion with 2 - 3 Bible references lists (verse references only, not the text). This devotion is particularly suited for someone who is experiencing difficulties or stress in their life (eg illness, relationship or family difficulties etc). The tone is very warm and creates a very comforting and calming feeling for readers, encouraging them to focus on connecting with God and experiencing his peace in the midst of the chaos of everyday life. This isn't a challenging devotional, but rather one that reminds readers that God is faithful even in times of trial and that the peace of His presence can be experienced even in difficulty or hectic times.

This book is an inspiration. As a Christian, who has felt short at times of what God has planned for my life, I needed this book. I am glad that I read it.

This book was recommended to me as a daily devotional that would change my life. It has been certainly true. I look forward to each day to hear what "God is saying to me." It has fit the situations in my life that cannot be explained by coincidence.

Jesus Calling is one of the best for inspiration! It is consistently encouraging and helps me to think in different terms and from different points of view and adds great meaning and inspiration in my life. If you ever feel that you are alone in this world, read this. You will be amazed how many times it speaks directly to you. This book challenges you to slow down and remember who is in charge and where to place your faith.

From page one its touched my heart. It starts out with my favorite bible verse that alone to me is a sign from God that I was meant to read this book. I know that I've been feeling an emptiness that only God can fill and just reading the first days already makes me feel closer to him in a way that I haven't felt in a long time.

This is an awesome daily devotional. Every day it seems to speak to exactly what I need. Bible verses are included with each section that back up what is written in the daily devotional. I have bought so many of these books to give away to friends because I have found it to be so good! Check it out, you won't be dissapointed.

I love this devotional. I'm not a "devotional" type of person, but I do love reading this little book. It reads just as if it were written to me personally!! I would encourage all to begin (or end) their day with spending a few minutes reading this wonderful book.

God's-love-in-a-book! One page each day is all I need to set my course, and focus my attention on the Lord. I keep this gem in my purse! The best money I've ever spent on a book.

I've found this book to be the perfect devotional. I'm so impressed with it that I'm planning to purchase it for my friends and family members as gifts for Christmas this year. Each day is thought provoking. Not shalllow. Yet they are short and the scripture references give you guidance to study if you choose.

I Love devotionals and usually have a stack of 2 or 3 by my bedside table stacked on my Bible. Since recieving this one I have gotten rid of the stack and now I just let the words of this book work into my heart and soul and set free the chains of this present darkness. Cheers to Sarah Young for listening to a King Who still speaks!!! All Glory to the King of Kings!!!!

A friend gave me this book at a time when I needed it most. Several friends had talked about how good it was..."I gave this to my husband, and after reading it, he said it spoke to him. but why did I like it? I told him it spoke to me too!" was one quote. The first day I read it it hit exactly on what I needed. It has been that way every day! I have to hold myself back from reading ahead. It's like my little reward every morning; I can't wait to read it first thing! Thank you for writing it.

This book was a gift to me at a time when I was going through several hardships and also looking for a church where I could worship and find fellowship with believers in Christ. This is the best devotional book I have ever read. I cannot start my day without it. I really feel as if Jesus were talking directly to me. Each daily devotion brings me such comfort, hope and peace. I anxiously look through my bible to read the scriptures at the bottom of the daily devotion. I have had this book for three years now and continue to read it every day. I have shared this book with several co-workers and they now have this book. I will be sending one as a Christmas present this year to a close friend who is going through cancer treatments. God Bless you Sarah Young for this life-changing book!

"jesus calling" is a very special devotional it was put together by sarah young who is a life long missionery and this bestseller came about from her prayer journal and she felt God calling her to publish it and that it could help others. what makes this remarkable is she is still doing missionery work with this book because it will truly help someone who might be hurting. this would make a great gift for a family member or friend or soldier who is serving over seas and its small enough to take with you and its not that expensive.

This book called me to our LORD! The Love that pours through Sarah Young’s devotions was instrumental in guiding me, a firm non-believer, to the LORD — to pray to and talk to Him, to study His Word as prompted by scriptural references the author includes below each devotion — portions of which she italicizes within the text. Deeply inspiring, uplifting, and God centered. This book called me home. Thank you Sarah Young.

I have read many devotionals in the past but this one makes me feel as if it was written for me. I can't say that everyone will take the same from it that I have but I do highly recommend to everyone to give it a shot. I don't think you will be disappointed.

This is a great daily devotional! I received this book as a gift in December of 2012. I have enjoyed reading it everyday since. I have given this book as a gift to many women, since receiving it. I purchased this second book because it my first Jesus Calling is falling apart and I thought the leather like cover will hold up better. I also purchased this copy because it has bible verses that correspond with the days reading. Another feature to note is it has easy to read print, although not a reason I purchased. I would highly recommended this devotional!

From the start I could hear Jesus talking to ME. I truly believe that Jesus put the explanations in Sarah Young's heart (as stated). I did not read one page per day BUT FIVE PAGES DAILY. I wanted to read what God wanted me to know and repeated consistently....that I should put my entire trust in him, allow him to guide my days and behavior and not be in control of my life because I'm really not. Slowly but surely, I gained the confidence I needed to know him on a more intimate level and trust all his daily decisions over my life. I planned my day but also allowed him to put people and circumstances he needed for my life. I recognized that I should not have other idols before him. This book has made a profound impact on my life and I wholeheartedly recommend its reading to all.

I received this precious little book as a gift 3+ years ago and my husband I been reading it ever since; during our daily devotional before our day begins. It has always amazed me, no matter how many times we have re-read it, it always speaks directly to whatever is going on in our lives that day. Over these past 3+ years, I have purchased a couple of dozen and have handed it out to friends, family and complete strangers. I highly recommend this book!

I have been a devout Christian for nearly seventy years. Other than the Bible, this book has made more of an impact on my life than any other book I have ever read. The author writes nothing new or sensational. Yet each page is as if she knows my circumstances and my thinking, and then tells me what I need to do that day to 'fix it'. Only the Holy Spirit could have inspired these writings. I highly recommend this book.

I've found that each day I receive a personal message, sweetly and directly written seemingly just for me. It's available in hard cover and for a Nook. I've been able to stick with this day by day better than any other devotional. It's one I have no hesitation in recommending. Take the time to look it over!
