Welcome to the blog tour for Mornings with Jesus!

I would like to thank Litfuse Publishing for providing me with a copy of this book to review.

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 REVIEW: I love reading devotionals, especially in the morning. So when I heard about reviewing this particular morning devotional I immediately signed up for it and was chosen, yay me!  

What I loved about this book is that it not only gives a scripture, but then you get a personal insight and story to go along with the scripture. I absolutely loved the "Faith Step" at the end of every page.  It kind of nudges you to be a little more proactive in  your walk with God and sometimes it felt like it was a hug from the writer.  This book was written with a lot of love, heart and soul and I personally would love to thank each other author for giving their precious time and sharing all those personal notes. It made a difference.

One thing that I did not like about this devotional was that there were hardly any scriptures given in the King James Version, so I had to have my KJV bible on hand to look up the scripture of the day, instead of using the version the author chose.  Other than that teeny tiny tid-bit, I absolutely LOVED this book.

CONTEST:  I have a copy that I would love to give away to one of my readers.  

All you have to do is leave a comment and then request to be entered into my contest.  That's all you have to do.

To those who do not live in the United States, and want to be entered as well, I am willing to pay the extra $$ if you really want it, okay?

Congratulations, Leticia! Good job. Sounds like a very good devotional.

I have to admit, my two faves right now are JESUS CALLING and a very old devotional a friend recommended when I lost my Mr. Z "Streams in the Desert"...which is fabulous.

I hope this new one catches on; we can't have enough resources by which to shore ourselves up as we live in the secularism and immorality, etc., in America today......xx
have a great weekend

It sounds like a great book.

"Be still and know that I am God.” It sounds simple but it is not.

Getting my mind to "be still', to clear it of all the every day clutter and concentrate on my conversation with God, is difficult. There is so much junk flying through my head at times.

It is a goal I'm still working at. God knows me though, he knows my intentions and he knows my heart and soul. He made me, he suffered for me, and he died for me. I'm so thankful.

You can enter me in your contest if you want

The continuing popularity of devotionals shows that despite what the Hollywood culture would have us believe, Christianity is alive and well!
