Day 14: Jesus IS Calling.

Like a lot of other great things in life, my mom was the one that introduced me to a small devotional book entitled Jesus Calling. At the time she gave it to me, I had no idea the impact it would have on my life and my relationship with The Lord. As I walked through the uncertainty and even the certainty of what my journey would entail, I was reading the devotions marked out for each day. I was continually amazed at how the scriptures and the content of the devotion were exactly what I needed for that day. It was as if I was being called to bring all my fears, my anxieties, my insecurities into His Presence so He could show me that His grace would bring me through it, no matter the outcome of my breast cancer journey.

Because of the numerous times this book has spoken directly to my needs for that particular day, I can't help but share it. If you haven't discovered it on your own, I may have given it to you as a gift. It is always included when I send kits to my "sisters" facing breast cancer surgery. It is why I can't help but include it in my 31 Days.

Thank you, Sarah Young, for your beautiful, inspired writing. And thank you, Jesus, for calling me into your Presence and revealing your faithfulness on a daily basis.

  1. I discovered this book in June after a friend recommended it. It was amazing to me how each day spoke directly to what I was going through. It has made me more aware of listening for him. It is a process, but one that is worth the journey.

    1. Definitely worth the journey. Thanks for reading!

  2. First time visiting/commenting on your blog; I am so sorry about your breast cancer; but I do know Jesus is walking alongside you through it all. My husband gave me Jesus Calling devotional book Christmas 2007. I totally agree with you on how Sarah Young's words given to her by Jesus and the scripture she shared with it touched my life in 2008. Each and every day's devotions tended to "hit" me where I needed His words the most. I might have to do this again in 2013.
