I have discovered over the years, that life can be challenging. God desires to sustain us as we look for "splashes of His grace" every day. My desire is that through posts, or book reviews, you may find something that points you to the grace of God, and that He ultimately will make a difference in your life.

Jesus Lives by Sarah Young
Jesus Lives is an intimate devotional book that intertwines Scripture in dialogue form. The book contains 180 individual devotions written from the perspective of Jesus speaking to the reader. Each one is like a personal letter of love as Jesus speaks words of encouragement, hope, guidance, correction and acceptance, drawing you into a more intimate and practical daily walk with the Lord.
The book is compact and attractive. It is visually appealing both inside and out, and well organized with a table of contents that lists the devotions by themes. Opposite each one page devotion are 3-4 Scriptures on which the devotion was based for further reflection.
Sarah Young does an outstanding job incorporating solid biblical truths in each devotion. Her purpose, "to increase the awareness of Christ's Love" in the reader's life is accomplished.
I would highly recommend this book. Read it carefully with your heart ready to hear His voice, and you'll see His love in your life and know that Jesus Lives!
