Jesus Always: Embracing Joy In His Presence by Sarah Young – Book Review
Are you looking for a daily devotional that’s designed to increase your joy and strengthen your relationship with Jesus? Are you tired of squinting at tiny print and would enjoy a luxuriously designed devotional with print large enough that you can comfortably see?
I’m always on the look-out for both, so I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when the Deluxe, Large Print Edition of Jesus Always: Embracing Joy In His Presence by Sarah Young arrived in my mailbox!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Sarah Young’s previous books, you are in for a treat. Sarah is one of those gifted devotional writers who meditates on the words of God – lets them soak into her spirit – and then writes devotions in the form of Scriptural messages that come from God’s heart straight to you. No pithy sayings. No sentimental stories. No things to add to your to do list each day. Just a devotional that speaks God’s Word into your spirit – followed by Scriptures that illuminate the devotional message for the day.
If you have never experienced this form of devotional, think of it as receiving a personal message from God each day. These devotions speak life into your spirit. They uplift you. They meet you where you are. They truly bring you into the presence of God and help you to connect with Jesus and experience His joy.
Here’s the opening of yesterday’s devotion, which was just what I needed to hear:
COME TO ME, and rest in My Presence. I am constantly thinking about you, and I want you to become increasingly mindful of Me. Awareness of My Presence can give you rest even when you are quite busy. An inner peacefulness flows out of knowing I am with you always. This knowledge of Me permeates your heart, mind, and spirit – and it can fill you with deep Joy.
The Deluxe, Large Print Edition of Jesus Always comes in a beautifully embossed, imitation leather that is a joy to touch and hold. The book opens comfortably to 365 dated (“January 1”) devotions and a ribbon marker to help you keep your place. I’m not sure what the exact font size is for the text, but the print is large enough that I did not need to use my reading glasses to read this book!
Jesus Always is the perfect devotional to start and end your day with and the perfect book to give to someone you care about.
I highly recommend this wonderful inspirational devotional to you!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
