Jesus Always: Embracing Joy in His Presence is a new devotional by missionary Sarah Young. The devotions included in this book and her other books are her personal thoughts and reflections. She writes in this introduction to Jesus Always that this book was a "marathon" for her since she worked on it for several years while living in Australia. After traveling for awhile and dealing with illness, Sarah Young strives to find joy in her everyday life so she wrote this particular devotional with that in mind. She writes these devotionals from the perspective of Jesus speaking to us as we read them. She also includes some Scriptures which are italicized and a few Bible references at the bottom so you can look those up if you'd like.
Jesus Always is 384 pages long, with one-page devotions for every day of the year, including February 29th. The book measures 4 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches by 1 inch. It has a hard, yet puffy, purple cover and the pages are smooth and slightly glossy. Included with the book is an attached ribbon bookmark so you can keep your place.
I love this devotional and find that no matter what my day is like, that particular day's devotion is so fitting and exactly what I need to hear.Read more ›
A wonderful devotion for years to come. I will continue using both Jesus Calling and Jesus Always.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
The attractive, gift-sized book's theme and tone "explore the promises of joy" found in Scripture. From the promise of abundant life to living a life brimful of joy "by embracing Jesus...even during the most challenging times," challenges of which Sarah is very familiar.
The devotional includes 365 one-page readings taken from Sarah's personal thoughts and reflections from what she views as the infallible, inerrant Word of God—the Bible. Using the voice of Jesus personalizes Scripture for readers in ways that other devotions do not and Jesus’ words are always italicized. Devotions conclude with chapter and verse Scripture references at the bottom of the page for additional study.
This devotional was a "marathon" task, writes Sarah due to an "international move" that caused her family to stay "in seven different homes multiple times" while she worked on the book. That also meant their family was disorganized and lived out of suitcases. However life events and difficult health issues also gave her "...more time to be thankful, to look for and find little treasures that brightened her day…to focus on Jesus and enjoy His Presence”.
For some, writing in the voice of Jesus is controversial, yet others identify more with the readings because it appears as if Jesus speaks directly to you.Read more ›
The book is so pretty with it's lovely purple color and the inside is just as gorgeous. I absolutely love the high quality paper that is used and the ribbon bookmark. It feels like there is so much thought put into this book but the best part is the content itself.
As with Jesus Calling, this book, Jesus Always, is written from the perspective of Jesus talking to you. I love how the love of Jesus is conveyed through each and every word. After the devotion, there are several Scriptures that relate to the devotion itself. The author encourages you to read each of these Scriptures for yourself because being in the Word of God is what is most important.
Each and every devotion just makes you feel so peaceful and loved. It also gives you such a feeling of closeness with the Lord. Each time I read a devotion, it felt like it was written specifically for me.
I love this devotion! I'm definitely making it a part of my quiet time. I believe you would love this devotion and that it would become your new favorite. I highly recommend it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
