“Jesus Calling” give-a-way

“Beware of seeing yourself through other people’s eyes. There are several dangers to this practice. First of all, it is nearly impossible to discern what others actually think of you. Moreover, their views of you are variable; subject to each viewer’s spiritual, emotional, and physical condition. The major problem with letting others define you is that it borders on idolatry. Your concern to please others dampens your desire to please Me, your Creator.

It is much more real to see yourself through My eyes. My gaze upon you is steady and sure, untainted by sin. Through My eyes you can see yourself as one who is deeply, eternally loved. Rest in My loving gaze, and you will receive deep Peace. Respond to My loving Presence by worshipping Me in spirit and in truth.”

{ Hebrews 11:6}  {John 4:23-24}

–Sarah Young “Jesus Calling”

When my mornings start off like this, it tends to be a better day.

As you probably know by now, I have not found a more real devotional book for me than “Jesus Calling” and so I want to share it with you.

Just leave me a comment of when you like to take time to be alone with God.

Is it in the morning, before you start your day?

Is it in the afternoon, to refocus yourself?

Is it at night, thanking Him for all His blessings throughout the day?

I’ll randomly pick a person from the comments over the weekend and get you the book, so you can start enjoying it, too.

  1. This book is hitting home deeply – thank you sister! Yesterday, Kirk was in a dark place over the job situation and we were both emotional and struggling to trust God, then I read the devotional (my time is at night, before bed). I read it to Kirk and he just smiled – duh, God – you are SO in control!!!

  2. Seems strange, but I find my time with God while I’m driving. Usually, its driving to and from school (Piqua). For whatever reason, this is my time to reflect, give thanks, and ask for forgiveness.

  3. I love to be alone with my Father in the mornings, after Pete has left for work and the house is quiet. (I, of course, have no little ones to interrupt me :() My only problem is keeping it to a certain amount of time. I can easliy get lost in Him and make myself late… But after all, it’s better to soak in His presence than to be early for a meeting, right? I’m so glad you’ve found a devotional book that fits you well and in the right season. Thanks for asking and thanks for sharing. Love you, girl!

  4. My time with God has always been at night. There’s a quietness in the house, Jim and the boys are usually fast asleep and it’s “God and me” time. When I talk with Him, I remember hearing one of my childhood pastors say that we should always thank God for at least 3 things before we start asking Him for anything. I’ve always remembered that and NEVER feel right if I go full-steam-ahead into me, me, me. God is always awake — whether it’s 9 p.m. or midnight — to talk with me.
