JESUS LIVES by Sarah Young
When I picked up this little treasure I knew I was in for a treat. Jesus Lives written by Sarah Young is written just as if Jesus were speaking to you and I. If you are looking to strengthen your faith, to increase your wisdom or you need a daily devotional to keep you focused on Christ, this sweet little book is for you. Each page is filled with lessons from God's word, from peace, joy, sorrow, trials, grace, hope, fear, protection, renewing your mind and overcoming temptations, to weakness, worry, worship and many more. With each one of these that we face daily there is a nugget of information to take away and think upon throughout the day. There are scripture verses to strengthen you as you are facing a trial, to lift you up as you are facing adversity, and to calm you when your fears are overwheming you. I have to say I love this little book. It is small enough to take with you anywhere, to pull out when you need a reminder of God's amazing power. To keep just for yourself, to give as a gift, or to share with a friend the wonderful hope of Jesus Christ, this is one book you too will treasure. Sarah Young faced trials in her health as she wrote this and as she listened to the Lord speak to her, she speaks to us, teaching us all that He has blessed her with. This book was a gift to me given by Thomas Nelson for its review.
