One of my favorite devotional books is Sarah Young’s, Jesus Calling. Each week I will upload my favorite Jesus Calling of the week. You can learn more about purchasing the book below. Threaded throughout Jesus Calling is God’s message to us to be still and to dwell in his presence.
“Stop worrying long enough to hear my voice. I speak softly to you, in the depths of your being. Your mind shuttles back and forth, hither and yon, weaving webs of anxious confusion. As my thoughts rise up within you, they become entangled in those sticky webs of worry. Thus, my voice is muffled, and you hear only “white noise.”
“Ask My spirit to quiet your mind so that you can think My thoughts. This ability is an awesome benefit of being My child, patterned after My own image. Do not be deafed by the noise of the world or that of your own thinking. Instead, be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Sit quietly in My presence, letting My thoughts reprogram your thinking.”
Deuteronomy 30:20; Genesis I: 27; Romans I2: 2

With pen in hand she embarked on a journey that forever changed her along with many others throughout the world. The result of these meditations is the classic devotional, Jesus Calling, Enjoying Peace in His Presence. In these powerful pages are the words and scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. A year’s worth of daily readings from Young’s journals are now available for you, in order to bring you closer to Christ and move you deeper into His presence and His everlasting peace.|
