Y/Y Palooza #7

Y’all may be familiar with this Yeehaw. It actually could be one of TLC’s Yummies.  Kacy, our special and dear friend at Piggy Pajamas (We’ve sung the praises of this FABULOUS California company in several past posts…we love the Piggy Gals with all of our hearts! Please visit them at: www.piggypajamas.com) sent this book to TLC almost two years ago. She shared it had become an important part of her Christian life and faith.


I’m not going to lie: I’m bad about reading it every day. Not proud of this. Just honest. (I believe TLC would admit to this unfortunate statement, too…sigh…) But what we both cherish about this sweet, calming and important daily devotional book is we can miss a day or two or five, pick it up, catch up and feel immediately renewed. Hopeful. Optimistic.  Each day’s message speaks to our souls. Our confusion. Our personal struggles.

Jesus Calling is written by Sara Young. She’s authored several other books in this series:

Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids

Jesus Calling: Bible Storybook

Jesus Calling: Women’s Edition

She has a calendar and a journal. All are available for your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices.

Here is today’s devotion (June 26, 2014):

STAY CALMLY conscious of Me today, no matter what. Remember that I go before you as well as with you into the day. Nothing takes Me by surprise. I will not allow circumstances to overwhelm you so long as you look to Me. I will help you cope with whatever the moment presents. Collaborating with Me brings blessings that far outweigh all your troubles. Awareness of My Presence contains Joy that can endure all eventualities.

Psalm 23:1-4 NKJV;

2 Corinthians 4:16-17

You should be able to find this delightful book at your local Walmart. Target. Any grocery store that carries popular, best-selling books. Of course you can have Amazon ship it to you! It’s not expensive. It’s worth every penny you’ll pay. I’m extremely confident about that. (It’s also a lovely gift for friends!)

Hope Y’all are ready for the weekend—because it’s heading our way…Woo Hoo!
