Mornings with Jesus 2012

"Be still and know that I am God.” is one of the most beautiful verses from the Bible, but it’s not easy to practice in this busy world. Mornings with Jesus will help you do just that—“be still” in Jesus’ beautiful and powerful presence. For those who are seeking a deeper experience in their relationship with Christ, Mornings with Jesus offers a fresh perspective of who Jesus is (the Healer, the Son of God, the Comforter, the Good Shepherd) and what that means for day-to-day life. With a warm and friendly voice, 365 short devotional writings on the character and teachings of Jesus encourage readers to greet each day by drawing near to Him and inviting His presence into their day. Spend time with Jesus at the beginning of each day and experience His nearness and peace in a new way throughout the year.

Each day’s selection includes: 
• a Bible verse
• an entry based on Jesus: His words, miracles, and parables; His wisdom, compassion, and comfort; His mystery, power, divinity, and humanity
• a “faith step” that will inspire and challenge readers to apply the day’s message to their lives

I GIVE THIS BOOK: 1 star1 star1 star1 star

I had a hard time deciding on a rating for this book. I have only read about one month's worth of entries and usually like to read a book in it's entirety before I review it - though I am enjoying this book so far.

Because every day's reading only takes 2-5 minutes to read, it is obviously not an in-depth devotional. I can see for people who don't have a lot of time in the mornings how this can be a nice way to make sure you start your day off right.

Each day's reading starts with a Bible verse, then has a story from one of the authors and a "faith step" that helps you apply that day's message to your life. I personally don't like all the different versions that are used, one day it is NIV, the next KJV, then NLT - I like devotionals to use only one version as I think each version has a different view on certain passages.

Overall, I think it is a very good book to read everyday, but I don't think that it should be the only book you use for your daily devotions.

***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***
