Jesus Calling

I'm not sure how many of you have heard of this book Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, but if you haven't gotten it you need to. Its a quick, daily devotional written as if Jesus Himself is speaking to you. And it definitely hits home more when my heart and mind hear the words written like that. I'm lucky enough that our church is giving out copies for free (my favorite way to inherit a new book)! I've just started reading it this week...but I love the way its written. This is yesterday's devotional...I just thought I'd share.

I am your Father-God. Listen to Me! Learn what it means to be a  child of the everlasting King. Your richest duty is devotion to Me. This duty is such a joyous privilege that it feels like a luxury. You tent to feel guilty about pushing back the boundaries of your life to make space for time alone with Me. The world is waiting to squeeze you into its mold and to crowd out time devoted to Me. The ways of the world have also warped your conscience, which punishes you for doing the very thing that pleases Me most: seeking My Face. Listen to Me above the clamor of voices trying to distract you. Ask My Spirit to control your mind, for He and I work in perfect harmony. Be still and attentive in My Presence. You are on holy ground...

-Sarah Young
