Mornings With Jesus 2012 Review & Giveaway

Mornings with Jesus 2012 Daily Encouragement for your Soul

"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.

Daily you can start your mornings in the Word of God alongside of a Christian author. Some I instantly recognized like Trica Goyer having read some of her works. Some of the other women were completely new to me. The one I tended to favor her writing was Sharon Hinck. On the days I read the devotion by her I was often touched by her word choices and moved by the selection of scripture she chose to write about. I love how Guideposts put together a devotional with a collection of women with different writing styles and burdens to share. It gives the devotional a newness each day that you don't get when it is published by one person. 

With a fresh perspective each morning I feel that I can tackle the day ahead as a homeschool mom, wife, and homemaker. That special time with Jesus prior to anything else honestly can make or break my day. When I choose not to be in His presence in the morning, my day tends to not go as smoothly as the mornings I sit at his feet. Something I think we all struggle with at times, something I feel I struggle with too often.
