What a wonderful devotional book inspired by an older book called God Calling edited by A.J. Russell and published by the Berkley Publishing Group in 1978. God Calling was given to me in 1973 by Sharon Patton writting to me in the cover, “the simple love in serving God in these passages have helped guide my daily path.” Thanks Sharon for your gift years ago.
Now those words are made anew in Sarah Young’s book that I highly recommend for the Christian caregiver. The medications are short and personal. Written as if god had a special word to us for the day. Karen, my wife, and I read these daily among other devotional books. Each meditation references scripture to be read with the devotion and we read them. Many we know and have memorized. The scriptures are made new in the context of Sarah’s meditation. I have referred to one of them in a previous blog.
It is important to start the day with the Word and Sarah make the Word accessible. The thoughts are not complicated theological expositions. They are directive from the one who is our source and strength to get through the day.
The book is not expensive. It is nicely bound with a cloth book marker to keep place in the book. Each day has its own devotion and can be used year after year. The reader will not grow tired of this devotional book. The message is always just what is needed for the caregiver, just what Jesus would say to you directly.
