Book Review - Jesus Calling

I'll be honest, I've tried devotionals before, and they just don't do it for me. The one's I tried were never quite targeted towards me and my walk with God, or just told sad (supposedly inspiring) stories and never really taught me much about Jesus and the Bible.

A couple of months ago, I knew I needed to do some sort of reading about Jesus, so I asked my bible study for a recommendation for a devotional. (I was neglecting to read the Bible too... which the Olive Tree app, has thankfully corrected.) My friends recommended this book - and they just happened to have an extra one too. I love this devotional! Each day is a short passage, written as if it is God speaking to you. It applies to many life situations and many people, and I know many people who use it or its companions. The passage is followed by the bible verses used to write the passage - so if you don't have a lot of time, you can just read/pray the passage, but if you want to delve deeper, you can look up the bible verses that go with it.

So I just went to get the picture/link on Amazon... and it's number 34 in books! Wow!

Anyone else find an awesome devotional?
