Jesus Calling Giveaway…

 Jesus Calling by Sarah Young: Book Cover  For some time now, I have started the waking up process with this devotional.

I am not much of a morning person…and so it takes me a little bit to unfold the eyes and stir my mind before I can really dive into the Word.

Some mornings I don’t have a lot of time before I have to get out the door but most mornings I can easily read these great gems from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.

Each day is written as if Jesus were speaking to you with corresponding scriptures…here is today’s:

Everytime you affirm your trust in Me, you put a coin into My treasury.  Thus you build up equity in preparation for days of trouble.  I keep safely in My heart all trust invested in Me, with interest compounded continously.  The more you trust Me, the more I enable you to do so.

Practice trusting Me during quiet days, when nothing much seems to be happening.  Then when storms come, your trust  balance will be sufficient to see you through.  Store up yourself treasure in heaven, through placing your trust in Me.  This practice will keep you in My Peace.

“When I was afraid,
I put my trust in you.

In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust, I shall not  be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?”

Psalm 56: 3-4

“but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Matthew 6: 20-21

I have really enjoyed this chunky little book this past year and I would love to give a copy away.  There are so many giveaways across the blog world…blogs that have huge readership…but for wee blogs such as this one…the odds are very good that you could win…is that enough incentive?  I hope so…

The rules for entry are:

  • Tell me where your Bible reading is taking you currently…what/where are you reading?
  • What book(s) are you reading?
  • Tell me one of your favorite books you read last year?

Here’s mine:

  • I am reading I Peter and will start reading Jeremiah for a Sunday school class Carl and I attend.
  • I am reading the last book in a trilogy called The Hawk and the Dove by Penelope Wilcock…as the back of the books say “They belonged to another century, yet their struggles are our own…”  Wonderful stories about monks…I just love reading them.
  • I’m more inclined towards non-fiction but I have been trying to read more fiction…I am not sure why it is such a struggle…perhaps I need to lighten up a bit…I would definitely say The Hawk and the Dove because I read the first one during December and this past summer I thoroughly enjoyed The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows…I love books written in letters…I passed this book around a lot and everyone that returned it just had such a smile on their faces and would sigh…great endorsement if you are one of the few that didn’t read it this summer.

I can’t wait to read your comments…I will pick a random comment on Saturday January 16th at or around noon (PST).

Happy reading!

    I am reading various scriptures on hope and rest and learning to take it slow and meditate on them. The current book I’m reading is the Hawk and The Dove trilogy recommended by a very dear friend. Last year was the fewest books I have probably read in any summer of my life since learning to read, but one of my favorites was A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 for a book study class. Very simple and easy to understand and glean truth from without heavy preparation and time. Like I said…it was a full summer and year!

    Thank you Helen this is very encouraging. I am finishing Patriarchs, reading through 2 Corinthians again as He met me there in September and I’m still being lead through; I started a biography on Charles Lindberg – I too enjoy non-fiction. I’ve also started to look forward into A Women’s Heart God’s Dwelling Place. I’m signed up and looking forward to ink flowing from His heart. God Bless you sister.

  4. I love to see what everyone is reading. I’m not a fiction reader either-I think it’s due to my lack of patience. Anyway, I am reading The Message this year daily and reading a book by Larry Crabb called “66 Love Letters” parallel with the books of the Bible. I just cleaned out my bookshelves and found several good ones I started. I’m reading All of Grace by Charles Spurgeon and Total Truth by Nancy Pearcy. I will have to get the Hawk and Dove series. Love, Annette

  5. I love this devotional! It is the coolest thing!

    a) I am currently working through the book of Job & and seeing all kinds of new things.

    b) I have started John Ortberg’s “the me I want to be” and I am finishing “a day in tuscany” by Dario Castagno. I also have Larry Crabb’s “66 love letters” and a dozen others waiting to be read.

    c) best book from last year…that’s a hard one. I loved the guernsey literary and potato peel pie book too. I enjoyed (but didn’t always agree with) “the girls from ames.)

    enjoy your day!

    love,

  6. I am currently still trying to “study” my Scripture Memory verses from last year and REALLY studying them, so I won’t ever forget them.

    I am reading “Same Kind of Different As Me” by Ron Hall & Denver Moore. It’s great so far!

    Best book from last year? “Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell. I just looked at my nightstand and have several books I have started but never finished.

    I want to read “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn.
    Thanks so much!!!
    Love,
    Angie xoxo
