Book review: Mornings with Jesus 2012

About the book: "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.

My Thoughts:  As this is a year long devotional book, I haven't read through the whole thing yet, but I've read entries from several of the different authors who contributed to the book and am really enjoying it so far.

I like that it is short and doesn't take much time (which is great for busy moms, or busy people in general!)  I love that it's focused on Jesus because our understanding of who He is is vital to our relationship with Him..  I like how personal the reflections of the verses are, and also really like the "faith step" that challenges you to actually apply what you've read to your own life.
