Just found a new kids devotional that comes from the perspective of God talking to kids. What a wonderful idea! It is called “ Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids” by Sarah Young and Tama Fortner published by Thomas Nelson Incorporated.
This book is written directly to children, as if God was speaking right to them. “Today is an adventure, and I want you to live it to the fullest. Be bold! Be courageous! I am right there with you every second.”
It works well for kids 10-16 after that Sarah Young has an adult version called “Jesus Calling”. Like the children’s version God speaks directly to reader. May 10th says,” Do not resist or run from the difficulties in your life. These problems are not random mistakes; they are hand-tailored blessings designed for your benefit and growth. Embrace all the circumstances that I allow in your life, trusting Me to bring good out of them them.” Sarah Young uses John 15:2, 2 Corinthians 1:8-9, and Ephesians 5:20 as the verse references to this lesson.
We love the “Jesus Calling” series. Thank you Sarah for listening to God ,writing down what He said to you and sharing it with the world.
