I do believe that the Author is anointed by Christ. This devotional reaches me on levels that I have not experienced through other devotionals. Jesus speaks to me personally through 'Jesus Calling' and I feel as if He is speaking directly to my circumstances... What a blessing it is to share fellowship with Jesus through these daily devotions every morning. Thank you!!
I purchased this devotional 5 or 6 years ago and have given it to many friends who have enjoyed it tremendously. The encouragement I have received from this book is priceless. I have read the reviews finding fault with the content and can only say that we can sometimes "overthink" the intent and the content. It is written as though Jesus is speaking directly to us, but these thoughts were written by Sarah Young. I believe her intent was to lift the reader's spirit and to provide encouragement reminding us that we are not alone and that our Lord is with us as He promised us He would be. The devotional gives daily reminders that Jesus is aware of ALL of our difficulties and has helped me to be more patient with my circumstances and to remember that God is in control which takes the focus off of my meager efforts. Each daily devotional is accompanied by Scriptures pertinent to the thought for the day. I can only sum this up by saying that these readings have helped me to set a positive tone for each day and to put my focus on Jesus instead of my troubles. I highly recommend this devotional and will continue to enjoy reading it daily.
