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.
Trust me in all your thoughts. I know that some thoughts are unconscious or semiconscious, and I do not hold you responsible for those. But you can direct conscious thoughts much more than you may realize. Practice thinking in certain ways – Trusting Me, Thanking Me – and those thoughts become more natural. Reject negative or sinful thoughts as soon as you become aware of them. Don’t try to hide them from Me; Confess them and leave them with Me. Go on your way lightheartedly. This method of controlling your thoughts will keep your mind in My presence and your feet on the path of peace.
Psalms 20: 7; John I: 9; Luke I: 79

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.
