Jesus Calling – Enjoying Peace in His Presence
For an uplifting, inspirational and definitely spiritual daily meditation book, have a look at
Jesus Calling - Enjoying Peace in His Presence
First published in 2004 by missionary Sarah Young after years of writing in her prayer journal and listening for answers from God, this daily readings book has turned into a best seller and is now in the hands of millions who use it on a daily basis for inspiration and enlightenment. I must be honest and say that the title of the book, when it was first given to me by my sponsor, was not something that I was drawn to. I don't consider myself to be a religious person at all and don't read scripture - pretty much ever. However, I do find the daily readings in this book to be very uplifting, non-judgmental and inspirational, which is something that I think most people in recovery can appreciate.
“You can have as much of Me and My Peace as you want, through thousands of correct choices each day. The most persistent choice you face is whether to trust Me or to worry. You will never run out of things to worry about, but you can choose to trust Me no matter what. I am an ever-present help in trouble. Trust Me, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.” - Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
It's a given that these are pretty powerful and inspirational passages. That being said, there are a handful of people who do have issues with this book and I can see their point. The fact that someone is claiming to be a channel for Jesus Christ and speaking His words to the world strikes some as audacious. Also, as you can see from the quote above, the book is written in the first person as if Jesus were doing the writing. Finally, the messages that are being delivered are pretty uniform in that they are mostly all affirmations, such as "Trust Me, I am with you, Relax". There is little in the way of religious teachings and commandments on how to live that are found in the bible. Now, if you can get past these points (I pretty much can) and concentrate on the positive and uplifting aspect of the book, which is all of it, then you really have a winner of a spirituality daily meditation here.

Uniquely inspired treasures from heaven for every day of the year by missionary Sarah Young. Jesus Calling is a devotional filled with uniquely inspired treasures from heaven for every day of the year. After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. It was awkward at first, but gradually her journaling changed from monologue to dialogue. She knew her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, but journaling helped her grow closer to God. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her messages. They are written from Jesus' point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah's fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.
