Publisher's Summary

Jesus Calling is a devotional filled with uniquely inspired treasures from heaven for every day of the year. 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. It was awkward at first, but gradually her journaling changed from monologue to dialogue. She knew her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, but journaling helped her grow closer to God. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her messages. 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 with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.

Just like Jesus is writing just to me!

What did you love best about Jesus Calling?

Love how this book is written in first person. Jesus gives me direction each day. Then the Bible verses of where the "advise" comes from. The book has inspired me to begin a daily journal in which I write a letter back to Jesus about the daily direction he has for me and the verses. As a follow up, a group of friends and I send each other a short summary from the daily devotional like..."It's hard to fall down when you are holding hands with Jesus!˝ It's so encouraging. You should try it!

So Disappointed in audio presentation

This devotional book is absolutely wonderful--a daily meditation accompanied by several Bible verses to connect the devotional. How disappointed I was that the audio devotional does not include the reading of the scripture verses. I try to read "Jesus Calling" every morning while I sit at my makeup table. Especially days that I work or have early morning commitments, I hoped to be able to listen to the narrated meditation INCLUDING the scripture verses. I guess it is more important for me to read and meditate instead.

Changed my everything

I never knew how much I was dwelled into myself. I kept complaining about how empty and sad I felt . I felt horrible witnessing sinful and corrupted acts in the world. I've grown weary and tired I told my Father. I told him I hate seeing this happening to the world. I couldn't find happiness in anything I used to love. I was in self-pity. This story encouraged me to trust in my Father . To trust that my footsteps will be lighter when he is at my side. Though life can distract or pull me down, God was always there to lift me up. I became aware of his existence and how much peace I have by having my Lord as my daily companion. He is more than I want in a friend or a boyfriend. I don't any different companion to hear me talk about anything . Because I know he would love to hear anything I have to say. His time was always for me . My trust soothes his ache and pain of the world. He became my everything. Everything I can't live without. Everyday I yearn for this oxygen that kept me breathing . Sustaining happiness and serenity that kept encouraging to keep living for Him. " When Christ is the reason to live, there is no reason to give up." I learned so much more about Him. Bless Sara Young for sharing this magnificent story. Thank you God for sending me these amazing messages you wanted me to hear. I trust in you Jesus. Never let me be separated from you.

Um Jesus was my favorite character...so...

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the month of January the best.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I tried to, but I had to break it up into parts. Its great to listen to as you wind down in the evening.

Jesus Calling

Any additional comments?

I am not conventionally religious but I am spiritual. I blend the teachings of several spiritual paths -- including Christ Jesus. I find that this selection of Jesus Christ quotes and/or paraphrases go straight to the heart, to the what I think Jesus really wanted to tell us -- love and faith, that Spirit, God, whatever you need to call It IS right here -- all the time! They are the universal truths that actually matter, do not divide one religion from another and for me -- consistently bolster and support my work to stay in love and faith.I prefer the original version of the book -- without all the added in preaching -- though I realize that might be just right for others. I don't care for the typically "religious" semi-pompous, 'I'm so holy and lofty' voice but I can take it ;) because what's being said/read is so right on.For me, this book gives wonderful support and strengthening to my spiritual path and connection and . . . to Jesus. Some days it feels like salvation.

suggestions and comment!

Would like the to be able to easily pull up the individual dates from my audible. Would like the scriptures at the end of each day read in the audible. I love Jesus Calling and I appreciate Sara Young's work in giving us her interpertation of the scriptures.

Jesus calling Review

I have enjoyed the audio of Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. My only critique is I wish it read the full Bible texts (KJV is my preference) and not just where the verses are found. If I'm on the run, I can't stop and look up the verses. Let me know when you can do this. Thanks
