Jesus Lives- Seeing His Love in Your Life - by Sarah Young

Jesus lives is a beautiful, padded hardcover book little book containing devotional thoughts and scripture. This book is a companion volume to Jesus Calling. This devotion book will help you open your heart to hear Jesus speak to you day by day. You can read through the book one devotion at a time, or you can use the theme index in the front of the book as a guide to pick a specific topic.

Personally I prefer reading fiction, but what stands out about this devotional book is it is written from the perspective of Jesus speaking to you. The daily messages include a message from Jesus followed by related Bible verses of the same theme. Overall, I thought this book was good but not something I would have bought myself. The book was easy to read and the messages were inspirational. This cute little devotional book would make a nice gift for anyone. I enjoyed the perspective of Jesus speaking directly to me, and found the devotions comforting. The words of Jesus himself will help you experience His presence in your hardest times.

(I received a free copy of this book to review through the Thomas Nelson Book Review Blogger Program.)
