After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior's voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her—and many others around the world. 

In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope.  Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace. 

Jesus is calling out to you in the same way. Maybe you share the author’s need for a great sense of “God with you”. Or perhaps Jesus seems distant without you knowing why. Or maybe you have wandered farther from Him that you ever imagined you would. Here is a year’s worth of daily readings from Young’s journals to bring you closer to Christ and move your time with Him from monologue to a dialogue. 

Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. Do you hear Him calling?

Sarah Young, the author of the bestselling 365-day devotionals Jesus Always and Jesus Calling®, has sold more than 25 million books worldwide. Jesus Calling® has appeared on all major bestseller lists. Sarah's writings include Jesus Calling®, Jesus Today™, Jesus Lives™, Dear Jesus, Jesus Calling® for Little Ones, Jesus Calling® Bible S...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazing Devotion Book!! This devo book has helped to change my daily perspective! The way we see and understand things can change your entire outlook on this life. It has helped me deal with the daily and ever changing struggles, by seeing and responding to them the way Jesus wants me to! This has made my days "MUCH MORE MANAGEABLE"!!! (Hmm, imagine that!, our Jesus, our Almighty Creator's way, works and is better than ours!) It would be foolish to know Jesus, and not listen to his word! Do you we not know what is best for our children? Despite what they might think..... This Devo book has truly been a blessing in my life, I hope you choose this blessing for yours!!! GOD BLESS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Restoring My girlfriend gave me this little book, in a gift pack, along with pyjama's and some bath goodies, the day before I started chemo. At the time, I was petrified at the journey that loomed ahead of me. I began to read "Jesus Calling"....each day, I felt that the reading was specifically for me. I could not believe how pertinent each day was for what I was experiencing and struggling with. Sarah Young writes in the third person, so it is like hearing from the voice of Jesus. She wrote it, inspired by the Lord, so not surprising. But that little book, made all the difference in my journey back to health, and of re-building my faith and trust. I am sure this book will meet you JUST WHERE YOU ARE. Totally impacted me. I am so grateful to my girlfriend for giving it to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this little gem! This is a great little devo book to get you started with resting in the presence of God. The daily readings are short and to the point and there are scriptures to look up to go deeper. This little book hits the mark and I am beginning to really treasure it. I'm sure I'll use it year after year and am purchasing it for gifts for my friends and family to enjoy as well!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Call to Intimacy with Jesus A few months ago I joined the Thomas Nelson Publishers blogger book review team. What a novel idea. I signed up, agreed to write a review and publish it on my blog as well as one other commercial site. In exchange, I received the book I chose to review in the mail. I chose “Jesus Calling,” a devotional by Sarah Young. I was drawn to the content based on a few tweets from others reading the devotional. I grew up in my faith with the Oswald Chambers classic “My Utmost for His Highest.” I love my online devotional time on the Jesuit site—one of my favourite experiences on the web. I also love Henri Nouwen’s “Bread for the Journey.” Now “Jesus Calling” is fast becoming another classic in my life. Sarah Young writes what she hears Jesus speaking to her in her spirit. She has honed her listening through years and years of writing in her journal and being attentive to what the Spirit wants to say to her. As I have spent time in “Jesus Calling, ”I have heard Jesus speaking to me many times in beautiful, fresh ways. Sometimes I hear Sarah’s personal filter—she is the pen, the messenger, after all—but I also recognize this as the voice of my Shepherd. Here are a few of my favourite calls: • “Rest in My Presence, allowing Me to take charge of this day. Do not bolt into the day like a racehorse suddenly released. Instead, walk purposefully with Me, letting Me direct your course one step at a time.” • “You are on the right path. Listen more to Me, and less to your doubts. I am leading you along the way designed just for you.” • “You must discipline yourself to live within the boundaries of today. It is in the present moment that I walk close to you, helping you carry your burdens. Keep your focus on My Presence in the present.” I definitely recommend “Jesus Calling.” My only caveat comes with the actual design. Here’s what I suggest: Please don’t judge this book by its cover. I was surprised when I opened the parcel I received in the mail. I was actually somewhat taken aback. My heart sank somewhat, because this book came dressed as a very dated, and forgive me for this, missionary. You get the picture. I had to force myself to pass through the visual barrier. The size and design also visually placed it in the gift book category, which surprised me. I am in my thirties and I have never bought a Christian gift book. That’s just me. As I dove into the content, however, wanting to keep up my end of the agreement, I was drawn in by the fresh writing. This book has taken me new places with Jesus. There’s a lot of wisdom here, so much Beauty and great Depth. “Jesus Calling” is worth laying down all your preconceived ideas about where you might receive and delving deeply into this revelation of Jesus. So, while the design placed this book for me in a different audience; the content of this book crosses generations for those who want to experience Jesus in a fresh way. If you can pierce through the visual barrier of the book jacket, the content will grab your heart, because it is Jesus speaking though one of his beloved daughters.

Jesus Calling is a phenomenon, as we'd expect anytime Jesus is calling." -- Robert Morgan, bestselling author of Then Sings My Soul and The Red Sea Rules pastor of The Donelson Fellowship in
