Jesus Always is Sarah Young's latest book. She's previously written quite a few other books, including the popular Jesus Calling devotional, but this was the first book of hers that I have had the pleasure of reading. The book description reads:
"Sarah Young’s first 365-day devotional since Jesus Calling.
With scripture and new personal reflections, the #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah Young, brings Jesus’ message of joy—for today and every day. Experience true joy—now and always.
Life today is full of difficulties—loss, sadness, fear. In the midst of these challenges, joy often feels impossible or out of reach. But Jesus has more for His followers than a life of striving, pain, and discontent. He offers life abundant, life to the fullest, life brimming with joy! Jesus Always, the new 365-day devotional from bestselling author Sarah Young, was written as part of Sarah Young’s exploration of the promises of joy in scripture. Written as if Jesus Himself is speaking directly to the reader, Jesus Always invites you into a new way of living—a life of joy.
Reaching out with joy-filled reminders from the Word of God, these devotions will intimately and gently connect you with Jesus—the One who meets you where you are. Draw near to Him in Jesus Always."
I read a lot of devotionals, but this one was definitely special. It's a small, attractive hardcover book that perfect for slipping in your purse to read on the go. It's a 365 day devotional, with one page for each day. The devotions are short but full of meat and very in depth for their length. Several Scriptures are included at the end of each day for further reading on the theme for the day. This is a wonderful, uplifting way to start your day. I highly recommend this devotional to anyone who wants to deepen their walk with the Lord.
I received a copy of this book in order to provide my honest and unbiased review. All opinions are my own.
