READ SARAH S DEVOTIONS I WAS IMPRESSED BY THE Sarah s devotions I was impressed by the integrity which was evident throughout her writing I also was relieved when I read in her introduction The Bible is of course the only inerrant Word of God my writings must be consistent with that unchanging standard Also after reading about her own personal perspective and journey I started to realize that this person might be a valid authentic down to earth seeker who happened to be a gifted writer and why shouldn t the God who created her meet her there right where she was willing to surrender and listen I started to feel that Sarah Young might have something valid and I understood this as it resonated close to home for me since I have experienced His presence in similar ways as she has described and desire to live in close communion with Him as opposed to the compartmentalized fragmented experience I see in the Christian community at times Of her own writing of this devotional she admits I knew these writings were not inspired as Scripture is but they were helping me grow closer to God I think for someone who wants to know God and share Him there is nothing better than to know that what ou have writtenor spoken has helped another see Him clearly drawn them closer to Him or sparked the flame for them to pursue Him passionately than before This is my own heart s desire as I write And God meets me there with my own pen in hand and finger tips to keys in this place I believe He has met Sarah Young there as well and she has been able to have the privilege to touch many than I am sure she ever imagined with this writing inspired by His Word love grace and truth I wholeheartedly recommend this book and have already bought a half dozen copies as gifts One is sitting right by me waiting to be mailed off to a friend for her birthday as I write this review I was hesitant to put this book into a certain category of favorites due to the popularity and newness of it But I confess I put it right by the side of my two faves My Utmost For His Highest and Morning and Evening Sarah is in pretty good company with Chambers and Spurgeon Historical I d say That is my personal opinion and I am sticking to it Oh I have also purchased a hard copy that I currently keep in my purse I just shared a reading with a friend at a school event I refrained from giving her my copy as I just bought it recently However I probably will eventually give it to the person God prompts at the moment Additionally I am considering purchasing the Children s Version for the Sunday School Class I teach as Christmas gifts since I only have two boys it is a realistic possibility I have been stalking that copy and got a peak at it at the school book fair just last night I love the lay out look and readability of it as well My daughter s classmate was purchasing it and we checked it against the adult copy remember the copy in my purse and I loved the pages presentation of scripture and prompt to look up on our own some of the verses It IS on my wish list even as an adult Perfect for sharing with a class small group or for bedtime devotions Have ou read Jesus Calling Les Carnets de Cerise T3 - Le Dernier des cinq trsors yet I thinkou should if Return to Doomstar (Doomstar 2) you have or do please let me knowour thoughts This review was written by my own desire to express my personal opinion and even though I have not received any copies of this particular books from the publisher I would absolutely graciously accept them although it would not influence what I have written nor what I will write in the future about the book or any other books by the author OR publisher Thank Language - A Student Handbook on Key Topics and Theories you Hope this is clear and fair This book is so beautiful It transforms my outlook every time I return again and again to this book to find comfort and guidance and the love of JesusI absolutely love this book I Kim believe in EPIC miracles awe inspiring miracles I believe in life s everyday miraclesI believe there is room for science and faith in GodI believe life on earth is a miracle and exists only due to intelligent design by an intelligent Creator I believe God is my Father Jesus is my savior and in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
