Each daily entry is an inspiration using scripture as the foundation and relationship with Jesus as the goal. Sometimes it's hard to remember that a human being (under the direction of the Holy Spirit) has written these alluring words that call us and not Jesus Himself. We are directed to a deep closeness with the Savior. It touches so many areas of our weaknesses that keep us from a full relationship with God to the healing touch of Jesus Himself. Sarah Young is a gifted writer using scripture so effectively. This is one of the best daily devotionals I have ever used. I am reading it with a new Christian lady 83 years old, who is disabled and unable to read it herself . She is loving every word.
I gave as a gift and so I really do not know because I did not read it myself. However, I normally do not order books without first reading reviews so I will say that it is a wonderful gift for those looking to help others get into the routine of having devotions
The book I ordered is a very deluxe version of the same book a friend has, who introduced me to Jesus Calling. It has always amazed me when reading a devotion that is so spot on with what I might be experiencing.
I have been reading this devotional book daily for about five years, and still find it new and meaningful for the day. I have given it as gifts, and my husband and I read it together each night. It reminds me of the song "Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace."
Amazing book! Has touched my soul every time I open it!

I was given this book as a gift and was immediately astounded at how deeply it touched me within the first few pages. I have not stopped reading it yet I start every morning with it and feel so much closer to Christ by doing so! It seems to be written to me personally and I am more than thankful that I was given a copy! This book is exactly the blessing I needed in my life right now!
