Jesus Calling

It was my sister who texted, “you need a copy of Jesus Calling.”

At which time I penciled on my brain ‘Jesus Calling.’  Whatever that meant.

The next time we spoke she asked, “did you get it?”

And my mind went frantic.  “Get what?”

Jesus Calling,” she said.  She breathed out like I’d let her down.

And then she spoke calmly.

“If you don’t have a copy of your own by Monday, I’m sending you one.”

Which is how it is that I’m holding Jesus Calling now.

 

Jesus Calling

Have you heard of it?

It’s the kind of book that fits in your purse.  Or your bag.  Or lies across the front seat of your car. The kind you always have with you.

The kind you recommend to friends.

And sisters.

Because there’s depth in the words.  Depth and peace.

And hope.

 

The pages are labeled by day.  And written as if Jesus is talking.  To me.

Just me and Jesus.

Here’s an excerpt from today’s piece.  May 25.

When you turn from your problems to My Presence, your load is immediately lighter.  Circumstances may not have changed, but we carry your burdens together.  Your compulsion to “fix” everything gives way to deep, satisfying connection with Me.  Together we can handle whatever this day brings. (Jesus Calling 152)

I needed that.

    I have never heard of it. Sounds interesting … Thanks

  2. I have the book and absolutely love it. I have purchased it for several people. Each day has scripture to look up and that is wonderful. You are right, Jeanne, that it is small, compact and powerful. Enjoy!!
