Jesus Calling for Christmas
By: Sarah Young
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Most of us find ourselves over-extended during the Christmas holidays and if you are like me, you find you often let your devotional time slide or be shortened with the promise to yourself…”I will do better tomorrow”. When I received this little Christmas Devotional I was blown away with it being written as though Jesus was speaking directly to me. It made me feel as though he and I were having a personal one-on-one conversation. This will make a huge impact on my devotional time during this coming holiday season! Not only are the scriptures and words uplifting, but the pictures are stunning and peaceful. I am excited to know that I can spend quality time with God’s word during the holidays with this little book. It has been hard to put it aside to wait until Advent to finish it. (I probably won’t wait as I never get tired of hearing the Christmas Story). My only wish for the book is that all scripture was labeled with the translation they were taken from.
The book is hard-cover, small and easy to carry with you so you can even use it during your lunch hour or while waiting in the grocery check-out line. It has 50 devotions all related to the season. In addition to the devotions you will be able to read the story of Christmas too! If you have never read one of Sarah Young’s “Jesus Calling” books you have no idea what you are missing. I would recommend giving this one a try. I am sure once you read it…you will be buying another to give as a gift.
